NFC Notes: 49ers, Matthew Stafford, Rams, Seahawks


49ers QB Brock Purdy was happy his team got the win but was not satisfied with his personal performance.

I’m excited that we won, first and foremost,” Purdy said, via NBC Sports. “But for my myself, I expect a lot out of myself and so I know you can say it’s my first time going in a meaningful game and trying to win and everything. But for me, man, I’m a perfectionist.

Purdy is taking on the responsibility of leading the team after QB Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a foot fracture that could hold him out for the rest of the season.

I’m definitely a guy that wants to do right all the time,” Purdy said. “And just because we won, it doesn’t mean I’m on Cloud 9. I want to get better, and I have to for this team moving forward.

49ers LB Fred Warner said Purdy’s experience on the scout team has prepared him for this moment.

He’s played against the best defense in the league for the past 13 weeks,” Warner said. “He’ll be fine.
