Super Bowl LVII Film Breakdown: How did Brock Purdy do?

Super Bowl 58 had every fan on the edge of their seat. The thrilling overtime finish was just the second of its kind in Super Bowl history. While Patrick Mahomes would go on to win his third Lombardi trophy, Brock Purdy became the first player ever to be drafted last in his class and start at quarterback for his team in a Super Bowl. Forcing overtime against the legendary Patrick Mahomes is no small feat, and it took a lot of big plays from Purdy and the 49ers' offense to get them there. In light of Valentine's Day, here's a closer look at the "X's and O's" of some key completions from Brock Purdy's Super Bowl performance.

Purdy's seventeenth completion (12:15)

The Chiefs brought the house and blitzed linebackers Nick Bolton and Drue Tranqill, who had a free rush to Purdy. With six rushing, the remaining five defenders were manned up against Aiyuk, Jennings, Kittle, Juszczyk, and McCaffrey. Aiyuk and Jennings ran a rub combo on the right side, with Jennings running a slant and Aiyuk running an out route from the slot. Jennings was able to get under his man just enough, and Purdy delivered a ball in stride and on target. Jennings was able to shed his tackler and break the plane to record Purdy’s first Super Bowl touchdown throw.
