Samuel made the catch six yards beyond the line of scrimmage and ran the remaining 51 yards, fending off multiple tackles. His last man to beat was Ramsey, who sat back on his heels as the receiver approached him.

As Ramsey dived for the rigging, Samuel jumped out and carried him into the house.

As talented as Ramsey is, Samuel was surprised to see the corner approaching.

“Yeah, I don’t know what he was doing out there,” Samuel said. After the match. “I just walked past him. He was backing up, I was like, ‘What’s going on?'”

49ERS DEFENSE SWARM RAMS, DEEBO SAMUEL RUNS RIOT IN THE VICTORY

Samuel finished the night with 115 receiving yards on six catches in his best game of the young season. Surprisingly, 109 of those yards came after the catch.

According to the NFL’s Next Gen Stats, Samuel’s 699 receiving yards since entering the league in 2019 is the most in the league. Last year, he ranked third in the NFL with 1,770 yards from scrimmage — his 14 total touchdowns were seventh-most in the NFL.

The 49ers avoided a devastating 1-3 start to the year and now lead the Rams for the NFC West title. Both are 2-2, but the win gives San Fran the tiebreaker for now.
