After getting down to the Washington Redskins 17-0, the San Francisco 49ers needed to make a change. That change came in the form of former Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard. What he did earned him the starting job in San Fran for the rest of the season.

Beathard led a 49er comeback which included his first touchdown pass in the regular season of the NFL. San Francisco would come back to tie the game before losing late to the Redskins 26-24. Beathard went 19 for 36 for 245 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

49er’s head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Beathard had several weeks of good practices and had earned the chance to compete for the starting job. Beathard said that he battled some early nerves before connecting on some passes including to fellow Iowa rookie tight end George Kittle. Now Beathard will go into the week as the starter for the 49ers.

San Francisco hosts Dallas next Sunday.
