I think a big part for us, as a whole, http://www.authenticcolumbusbluejackets.com/authentic-sonny-milano-jersey offensively is just finishing in the end zone, Garoppolo said Wednesday, via http://www.jetsfootballofficialshop.com/Authentic-Rashard-Robinson-Jersey Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area.

Last year we got stopped short a couple of times, more than we’d like to. And I think we’ve done a good job in OTAs and minicamp of finishing in the end zone, for the most part. Finishing drives and stuff like that.

The 49ers scored points on 60 percent of Garoppolo’s drives, per NFL Research, almost doubling the 2017 league average. The Patriots, for comparison, scored on 52.8 percent of Tom Brady ‘s drives.

The converse point to the above statistic — beyond sample size — is that most of those scoring drives were field goals.

In Jimmy G’s first start of the season the Niners were 0-of-5 in converting red zone possessions into field goals. In 24 trips inside the 20-yard line in Garoppolo’s five starts, San Francisco scored 11 TDs, settled for 12 field goals and the quarterback threw one interception.
