The San Francisco 49ers lost their second starting quarterback of the season on Sunday when Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a foot injury. The 49ers' fate now is in the hands of former scout team quarterback Brock Purdy.

Purdy entered the Niners' Week 13 game against the Dolphins and played great. He was 24/37 with 210 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. San Francisco walked away with a 33-17 win, handing the Dolphins their first loss since Week 6.

When defensive captain Fred Warner was asked about Purdy following the game, he delivered an awesome quote.

You have to love Warners' confidence; plus, he's also right. San Francisco is the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL this season, surrendering just 15.8 points per game.

While Purdy doesn't have a whole bunch of in-game experience, going up against a defense like the 49ers week in and week out during practice will only help him even more on the field.

The last four games present a mixed bag for Purdy in terms of defense he will be going up against. He has two outings versus a top-10 scoring defense in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Commanders, but on the flip side, has two games against bottom-10 defenses with the Las Vegas Raiders and Seattle Seahawks.

The 49ers are currently a 3-point home favorite against the Buccaneers in Week 14, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
