Going into Monday night’s game, San Francisco 49ers Brock Purdy was the odds-on favorite to win the NFL MVP. After a four-interception performance against the Ravens, his bid for the award is probably done. Fans took to social media and trolled the quarterback for his performance.
Fans React To San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy
Purdy’s MVP bid is one of the most polarizing topics in all of sports. The 49ers have so many offensive weapons that often Purdy does not have to do much in order to have impressive numbers. However, tonight the Ravens’ defense was ready and fans seemed to think that this was the end of Purdy’s bid for the most valuable player in the league.

Broadcaster: Brock purdy deserves to be in MVP conversation

While Purdy has definitely proven himself to be a very good quarterback, the MVP talk is going a little too far for most people. There are plenty of other deserving candidates who do way more for their team.
Concern For The 49ers?
This is one regular season game and the team is 11-4 right now so there isn’t much concern. These games happen especially against good teams. Where the 49ers should be concerned is the injuries suffered in this game. Left tackle Trent Williams went out with a groin injury and didn’t return. This may have been precautionary but the Ravens were able to get constant pressure without him on the field. Multiple other linemen went down with injuries and if this line isn’t healthy going into the playoffs, that could be a huge problem.
Brock Purdy has been a great story and we shouldn’t take away what he has done for the team but tonight likely ended his MVP campaign.
