49ers Jimmy Garoppolo Starts in Week 13 against the Bears

San Francisco 49ers will give Garoppolo the starting nod for the first time against the Chicago Bears in Week 13, the team announced Tuesday. San Francisco shipped a 2018 second-round pick to the New England Patriots for Garoppolo before this year’s trade deadline.

What happened Sunday? After quarterback C.J. Beathard went down with a left knee injury late in the fourth quarter against the Seattle Seahawks, Garoppolo made his debut for the 49ers.

With a little more than a minute left in the game, Garoppolo showed fans a glimpse of his talent. The Seahawks held a commanding 24-6 lead, but San Fransisco was in the red zone threatening to score.

Garoppolo orchestrated the hurry-up offense and collected the 49ers’ lone touchdown with a 10-yard strike to receiver Louis Murphy.
