San Francisco 49ers beats the New York Jets for their first win of the season

The Jimmy Garoppolo-led team won 31-13 on the road to even its record in the NFL opener.

After last week's 24-20 upset loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Santa Clara, California, the San Francisco 49ers made amends by beating a weak New York Jets team by more than 20 points.

The game was handled calmly by the Kyle Shanahan-coached team, as they partially won two of the four quarters, tying the last two quarters at three points per side.

Red and Gold quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw 16 passes throughout the game, completing 14 of them and marking 131 yards that turned into two touchdown tosses to Jordan Reed, who also completed seven receptions in the game and 50 yards.

Another key man, both last season when they reached the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs and in this game, was Raheem Mostert: the San Francisco running back accumulated 92 yards in eight carries, averaging 11.5 yards per carry up front, in addition to generating a touchdown.

The second quarter was the most dominant of the game, as the 49ers were able to extend their 7-3 lead to 14 more points without conceding any.

The victory takes on more relevance after reviewing the list of absentees that the Santa Clara-based team came into the game with: tight end George Kittle, who suffered a knee injury in last week's game, Richard Sherman, with a leg problem, as well as injuries to defensive backs Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas in the first minutes of today's game. 

In the game against the Jets, Mostert and starting passer Garoppolo also left the field due to injury, so Nick Mullens had to make his appearance, a man who passed eight of 11 assignments correctly and was intercepted on one occasion. 

The next three games for the San Francisco squad will be against the New York Giants, as visitors, and they will host the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins at home.
