Purdy made his second start in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field.

Leading the San Francisco 49ers to a 21–13 win

Because he replaced the injured Jimmy Garoppolo.

The win, which marked San Francisco's seventh straight,

clinched the NFC West for the 49ers and a postseason berth.

Purdy exceeded those expectations,

Which he got in April with the Mr. Irrelevant title for the second time,

Just three days later he threw for two touchdowns and Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay

Ran on second in San Francisco's blowout victory over the Buccaneers.
