However he, together with the remainder of the Niners, struggled mightily because the Dolphins took a 30-7 lead into halftime. Coach Kyle Shanahan determined to show to backup C.J. Beathard to begin the third quarter.
In response to the Fox broadcast, Shanahan mentioned at halftime he was “anxious” about Garoppolo and determined to go together with Beathard as a result of he “desires to guard” Garoppolo. Garoppolo was beneath stress for a lot of the primary half because the Dolphins sacked him 3 times and had 4 quarterback hits. He threw a pair of second-quarter interceptions as he struggled to get snug within the pocket.
In his two quarters, Garoppolo was 7-of-17 for 77 yards with no touchdowns and the 2 interceptions for a passer score of 15.7. Beathard performed properly in reduction however was not capable of mount a comeback because the Niners misplaced 43-17. He completed 9-of-18 for 94 yards and a landing.
