The San Francisco 49ers have found themselves quite a weapon in rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. The 49ers ran him to the right end for a 38-yard score to cut the Eagles lead to 8-7 in the first quarter of Sunday Night Football.
It was an impressive run, but it was the leap at the end that made it a thing of beauty. We’ve seen failed hurdling attempts, but this was perfectly executed by Aiyuk to get into the end zone.
