At 8-1 heading into Week 11, San Francisco was in urgent need of a success following a week ago's exciting extra time misfortune to the Seattle Seahawks. 

In any event at first, it didn't search useful for the homestanding 49ers. They tumbled down 16-0 in the principal half, neglecting to do anything on offense while viewing Kyler Murray and the Cardinals' offense take off no doubt. 

Indicating the battle we've seen from this group all season, the 49ers had the option to mobilize behind a vocation spending day from Jimmy Garoppolo for a 36-26 rebound win. That incorporated a Garoppolo-drove touchdown-scoring drive in the last seconds to bond a 9-1 beginning to the season. Here's the greatest takeaways from this profoundly focused game. 

Wounds Threaten To Derail Season 

Today In: Business 

It can't be noted enough exactly how much the damage bug has affected San Francisco this season. Genius Bowlers George Kittle and Joe Staley missed Sunday's activity. Driving rusher Matt Breida was missing, as was star cautious handle D.J. Jones and edge rusher Ronald Blair, the last of whom is out for the rest of the period. 

It didn't show signs of improvement at Levi's on Sunday. Sketchy heading in, No. 1 recipient Emmanuel Sanders was in and out of the game as his rib damage affected him for sure.

Protectively, Pro Bowl pass rusher Dee Ford pulled up weak with hamstring damage. It came after a sack in the primary half. He didn't come back to activity and was very quickly precluded for the rest of the game. 

There's something to be said about defeating wounds. Be that as it may, with a three-game record against the Packers, Ravens and Saints approaching, this must worry for the 49ers. That is without a doubt. 

Richard Sherman's No-Good Afternoon 

Playing at a Pro Bowl level this season, Sherman probably won't have permitted numerous gets on Sunday. Notwithstanding, he committed the 49ers' initial three punishments of the game – the entirety of the pass obstruction assortment. It began Arizona's underlying drive of the game and set the rival collaborate with an objective to-go circumstance. He was likewise called for two more in the primary half alone. 

Notwithstanding the undeniable idea of every one of the three, Sherman removed time from his day after the game to impact the NFL. 

"I thought it was intriguing, I thought it was truly fascinating," Sherman said after the game. "I had three punishments on the season coming into this game, and to get three out of a half is truly intriguing, particularly considering with the manner in which the inversions have gone. I believe there's been more than 100 PI challenges this year and there's been five I think inversions and I'm two of them." 

Sherman may be correct that authorities have pushed back against upsetting their unique calls, yet that initial one was about at least somewhat self-evident. He genuine handled Christian Kirk before the ball showed up. 

This is something to focus on as the season advances. Groups will assault Sherman with their speedier and progressively sneaky beneficiaries. Having yielded one of the most minimal passer appraisals when focused this season, he'll need to up his game much more. Sunday saw Sherman cost the 49ers for basically the first run through since he joined the group. 

Jimmy Garoppolo Comes Through At The End 

A week ago's three-turnover execution seemed as though it was well while in transit to proceeding on Sunday. Garoppolo tossed two horrendous block attempts, the two of which accompanied the 49ers driving. In particular, this pick under the control of Cardinals linebacker Jordan Hicks went about as a genuine force change. 

We're truly not in any case sure what Garoppolo was taking a gander at here. How did he not see the linebacker? It accompanied San Francisco up 17-16 and driving for additional. Rather, Arizona had the option to stem the tide and in the end take a 19-17 lead on its next belonging. 

At that point in the fourth with San Francisco driving for at any rate a tie game, Garoppolo tossed behind tight end Ross Dwelley. It was picked off noticeable all around, finishing another potential scoring drive. 

The uplifting news here is that San Francisco's safeguard hung on three-and-out on the accompanying belonging and set the 49ers up for a potential game-winning drive. That is when Garoppolo came through for sure. He finished 6-of-7 passes on the last drive, hitting Jeff Wilson for the game-winning 25-yard touchdown pass. 

You take the great and the awful with Garoppolo. This season has been a portrayal of that in a major way. Be that as it may, he finished Sunday setting up a lifelong line. The veteran finished 35-of-45 goes for 424 yards with four touchdowns and two capture attempts in the success. At the point when the 49ers required it the most, Garoppolo came through no doubt. 

Deebo Samuel Is A Breakout Star 

49ers Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle has missed every one of the previous two games. In his stead, this tenderfoot recipient has ventured up for sure. Battling through damage, Samuel caught 8-of-10 focuses for 134 yards on Sunday. It's Samuel's second back to back 100-yard excursion and he's getting 76% of his goes during that length. 

When Garoppolo required somebody to step up with Kittle out and Sanders beat up, Samuel did only that. He's rising as a tenderfoot at the opportune time. That is no little thing with the 49ers' timetable getting considerably more troublesome over the last a month and a half. 

49ers Found A Way To Win In A Different Way 

The procedure has been clear in San Francisco this season. Run the ball at a world class clasp and play incredible protection. It had the 49ers at 8-1 heading into Sunday's down. Something changed in Week 11. Arizona totally sold out against the run, holding San Francisco to a season-low 34 yards on 19 endeavors. 

Rather than being stuck in his old ways endeavoring to get the ground game going, Shanahan had to forsake the run through and through. That is the thing that happens when you tumble down 16-0 right off the bat in a game. 

As noted above, Garoppolo reacted. It's additionally in light of the fact that San Francisco enabled him to react and place the game in his grasp. Of the 49ers' initial 39 plays in the subsequent half, 35 were called pass plays before they endeavored to run out the check late in the last stanza. 

This isn't a formula the 49ers are going to need to utilize pushing ahead. Yet, for one game, it's a formula they expected to end up as the winner. It laborer
