Another week, another preseason touchdown pass for C.J. Beathard. This score went for 87 yards:
— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) August 28, 2017
Obviously, a lot of the credit for that touchdown should go to Mostert and the 49ers' downfield blocking -- C.J.'s contribution was just a short pass that didn't even travel five yards. Mostert and the blockers did the rest of the work. But, hey, it goes down as a touchdown pass for CJB!
Beathard got the back-up snaps for the Niners tonight (behind Brian Hoyer) and he put together another pretty decent performance: 7/13, 149 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT. Hoyer still seems pretty set as the starter -- he went 12/17 for 176 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions against the Vikings' first-string defense -- but hopefully Beathard has done enough for the Niners to give him an opportunity to play at some point this season.
