On the first drive of the game, the Chargers wasted little time and covered 75
yards in seven plays. On his way to a touchdown, Justin Herbert completed throws
for 14, 17, and 32 yards. Unfortunately, neither Dre
Greenlaw nor Talanoa Hufanga had a terrific start.
Like usual, the 49ers' offence moved past middle. As always, the question was
whether or not they would punch it in. The offence entered the red zone after
Brandon Aiyuk's 20-yard catch. The offence gained a down thanks to a carry by
Elijah Mitchell. They soon found themselves inside the 5-yard line.
