Deebo Samuel’s Monday Night Football appearance was a star ride

SANTA CLARA – In a make-or-break game for their season, the 49ers did a smart thing Monday night.

They gave the ball to a game-breaker.

Deebo Samuel was the star of the 49ers’ stunning and impressive 31-10 victory over the Rams, scoring twice in what was the best game of the season, his finest season in the NFL.

It was the kind of performance that on national television changes the perception of a player.

Say hello to your newest superstar, Niners fans. San Francisco is going to need a lot more of him doing special things if they are to get into the playoffs in 2021 through the back door.

Samuel had 133 yards and two touchdowns on 10 touchdowns on Monday, but that doesn’t even begin to explain his impact on the game.

In an independent competition with bright lights, where big names were the norm and fireworks were expected, he was the best player on the field without anyone.

As such, Niner’s offensive game plan came into focus early in Monday’s game: run the ball, but make sure it’s in Samuel’s hands a lot.

Good plan.
