The San Francisco 49ers keep finding ways to win, despite being on their third starting quarterback of the season.
Rookie Brock Purdy has certainly found instant success as their new quarterback over his first two starts.

Purdy has the highest passer rating of all quarterbacks in the last two weeks.
His impact on the 49ers cannot be understated, especially considering that they have clinched a playoff spot, and are fighting for much more than the regular season.
In the past two games, Purdy has completed 70.8 percent of passes, throwing for a total of 402 yards and adding two touchdowns.
Purdy hasn’t attempted more than 26 passes in a game in his short tenure.
While the jury is still out on what it would look like for Purdy to have 30-plus passing attempts in a game, the real strength of this 49ers offense is their run game.
If the run dominance continues for the 49ers, as long as Purdy can keep playing mistake-free football, they will be in a great position for every game they participate in.
What Does The Rest Of The Season Look Like For The 49ers?
The 49ers complete the season with games against the Washington Commanders, Las Vegas Raiders, and Arizona Cardinals.
With the Raiders and Cardinals currently under .500, the 49ers will have a great chance to win those two games.
The Commanders could put up a tough test, especially considering they are fighting for their lives for a playoff spot.
At this point, the 49ers will either be the two or three seed in the NFC, depending on how the Minnesota Vikings finish their season.
