49ers vs Titans final score, results: Titans steal victory in dying seconds, Garoppolo throws two INTs
With a field goal in the dying seconds of the game, the Titans clinched a 20-17 victory over the 49ers.
Bullock made a 48-yard attempt with nine seconds left and sealed the victory at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. The victory allows the Titans to advance to 10-5 and potentially win the AFC South, as long as the Colts lose their next clash against the Cardinals on Christmas Day.
Despite 22 passing for 209 yards with one touchdown, Ryan Tannehill rushed for 22 more yards and gave Tennessee a critical first down. He slipped out of the pocket with just over a minute to go and helped put the Titans in a field goal position at San Francisco 31. Tannehill also connected with main receiver AJ Brown, who recorded 145 receiving yards and one touchdown in his first injury return game. .
Jimmy Garoppolo also threw two interceptions that helped the Titans capitalize. He threw his first red zone pick of the season in the first quarter, then threw another in the third quarter and unwittingly gave the Titans some momentum. Running back D’Onta Foreman scored the team’s lone rushing touchdown and tied it at 10.
Although the 49ers’ defense fired Tannehill four times, they allowed 90 rushing yards and let the Titans convert on nine third downs. Defensive end Samson Ebukam led San Francisco with 1.5 sacks while Jordan Willis had one.
If the Cardinals win on Saturday, the Titans will win the AFC South. They should face the Dolphins for their next game. On the flip side, the 49ers will look to keep their playoff hopes alive as they face the Texans in Santa Clara, Calif., On Jan. 2.
