Here are the grades for the San Francisco 49ers’ 24-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
GABBERT: F. Sacked himself three times by running out of bounds behind the line of scrimmage. Completed 9-of-15 passes for just 76 yards through the first three quarters, then boosted his stats during garbage time. Led the offense to 10 points against a defense that had given up 28.9 points per game coming into Sunday. Shameful.
RUNNING BACKS: F. Shaun Draughn rushed for 43 yards against a defense that had been giving up 136.3 rushing yards per game. Shameful.
WIDE RECEIVERS: F. Quinton Patton caught a deep pass that didn’t count because he committed an illegal motion penalty before the snap. This was the play of the game for the offense. Shameful.
TIGHT ENDS: F. Blake Bell made three catches and couldn’t block to save his life. Shameful.
OFFENSIVE LINE: F. Gave up nine sacks, but at least three were Gabbert’s fault. Still, nine sacks. Shameful.
DEFENSIVE LINE: F. Gave up 230 rushing yards for the second time in the past four games. Isaiah Crowell, who came into the game with 397 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown through 12 games, rushed for 145 yards and two touchdowns against the Niners. Shameful.
LINEBACKERS: F. NaVorro Bowman and Gerald Hodges missed roughly 45 tackles. Corey Lemonier grabbed Johnny Manziel’s facemask in the end zone and negated a safety that would have cut the deficit to five points before halftime. Shameful.
DEFENSIVE BACKS: F. Eric Reid packed it in. He’s supposed to be a run-enforcer, but instead of delivering blows he tried to catch running backs with his chest. Shameful.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B. Hey, these guys were pretty good!
COACHES: F. Geep Chryst kept asking tight ends and fullbacks to block defensive ends, Eric Mangini kept using zone coverages that didn’t cover anyone, and Jim Tomsula kept staring into space with a blank expression. Shameful.
