Only mobile QBs have beaten 49ers and here comes the Cowboys’ Dak Prescott

              In the San Francisco 49ers' first regular season game, a 19-10 loss at Chicago, Bears' dual-threat quarterback Justin Fields escaped left to avoid up-the-middle pressure and threw across the field for a game-shifting, 51- yard touchdown pass to all-alone wideout Dante Pettis.

Asked about the breakdown, defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans cited a lack of discipline in the secondary.

“We can’t have everyone running down to get the quarterback,” Ryans said, “if he’s not past the line of scrimmage.”
In the 49ers’ penultimate regular-season game, a 37-34 overtime win at Las Vegas, QB Jarrett Stidham regularly extended plays by dodging defensive linemen en route to piling up 399 total yards.

Asked about the breakdowns, pass rusher Nick Bosa cited a lack of pass-rush discipline that would have provided inviting openings for a 45-year-old QB.

“The lanes we gave him, anyone could have run through,” Bosa said. “Tom Brady could have run through them.”
