Garoppolo put together one of his best performances in Monday’s victory over the Cardinals, completing 20-of-29 passes for 228 yards with four touchdowns.
The 49ers have now won three games in a row and are 3-1 since McCaffrey got there in Week Seven. Garoppolo has completed 71 percent of his passes for 1,006 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception in that span, good for a 115.7 passer rating.
“He is such a talented quarterback,” McCaffrey said, via Jennifer Lee Chan of NBCSportsBayArea.com. “He doesn’t get enough credit in my eyes, at all. He is a great leader, super smart, can make make any throw and just a great guy to be around. It’s been a lot of fun to be able to pick his brain and mesh with him.”
McCaffrey has been a friendly target for Garoppolo, catching 21 of his 24 targets for 185 yards with a touchdown since joining San Francisco. He’s also rushed for 209 yards with a pair of touchdowns.
With Garoppolo at the helm, the 49ers now hold first place in the NFC West at 6-4, given their tiebreaker over the Seahawks. San Francisco will host New Orleans in Week 12.
