Imagine your NFL team is forced to turn to the third-string quarterback, a rookie who was drafted as Mr. Irrelevant in the 2022 draft. On top of that, your team has to face their fiercest rivals with a chance to clinch the NFC West title in Week 15.
Well, that's just another day at the office for Brock Purdy, Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers.
Despite entering the game with real injury concerns, Purdy put together another noble performance on Thursday Night Football when the 49ers visited the Seattle Seahawks. The dynamic rookie gunslinger tossed for 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions en route to a division-clinching victory in front of a national television audience.
Cameras caught Purdy leaving the field after the biggest win of his football life, and the reaction was priceless. Check out the video below:
