Date of Jimmy Garoppolo's first 49ers start reportedly known

Giants tight end Evan Engram caught six passes for 31 yards and a 9-yard touchdown, his fifth score of the season, tying a team rookie record.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - From the moment the San Francisco 49ers acquired quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Halloween, the reality was he would eventually trade his backup quarterback costume in and assume the mantle of starting quarterback. However, with a loss to the 49ers and another season of underperforming, major shakeups to the franchise are coming.

The Giants' season from hell has reached a new low point.

Beathard, a third-round draft pick from Iowa, is completing 50.9 percent of his throws, averaging 188.2 yards per game and has thrown two touchdown passes and four interceptions.

The addition of the 28-year-old slugger would fill a big void the Red Sox have tried to address since David Ortiz retired in 2016. The four-time All-Star is coming off a banner 2017 regular season in which Stanton smashed 59 home runs and 132 RBIs.

The 49ers will try to keep things rolling after their bye, when they host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Nov. 26.

The Giants were unable to sack Beathard through the first half, which was quite a change considering he'd endured 16 sacks and 47 hits in his previous 3 1/2 games. Olivier Vernon called it "embarrassing".

Additionally, wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who had arguably his best performance with the team, appeared to suffer a hamstring injury that caused him to come up lame on an Eli Manning fade.
