- The San Francisco 49ers got a big performance from running back Carlos Hyde as the ‘Niners recorded a 31-21 victory over the New York Giants, the team’s first win of the 2017 season.
- Hyde carried the ball 17 times in the contest and produced 98 rushing yards at an average of 5.8 yards per carry, the fourth-best mark among running backs with at least 10 carries this week. While he didn’t find the end zone, he ended the game with a running grade of 78.4, good for ninth among backs.
- Impressively, 84 of his 98 rushing yards came after contact and he forced a total of three missed tackles. His average of 4.94 yards after contact per attempt ranks first among 23 players at the position that carried the ball at least 10 times during Week 10’s slate of games.
- Hyde also burst through the line of scrimmage twice for runs of over 15 yards, demonstrating the patience and vision that 49ers fans are hoping for in the team’s zone blocking run scheme.
