The San Francisco 49ers have started the 2023 regular season similarly to how they ended 2022.
In a streak that spans to last season, the 49ers have won 13 straight regular season games.
While they are dominant on both sides of the ball, many analysts give credit to two of their offensive players.
Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey are both performing at high levels, causing David Lombardi to call them both MVP candidates.
Purdy has already thrown for more than 1,000 passing yards, adding five touchdowns and zero interceptions.
While he hasn’t necessarily dominated the stat sheet with touchdown numbers, playing mistake-free football is always a good thing.
He has the trust of this locker room and organization and doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.
Purdy might have been Mr. Irrelevant during the 2022 NFL Draft, but that hasn’t stopped him from strong on-field performances this year.
McCaffrey is also performing to new heights, even by his high standards.
He leads the league in rushing through four weeks, averaging more than 100 yards per game.
McCaffrey already has six rushing touchdowns, adding one touchdown through the air.
Both players are seen as some of the top offensive players in the league, which is why Lombardi made this bold statement.
The 49ers are commonly highlighted across the NFL due to their strong defensive play, which has continued this year.
If they’re able to continue the brilliance from that side of the ball, paired with this output from McCaffrey and Purdy, the 49ers’ ceiling could be limitless.
