Can Jimmy Garoppolo engineer some more 49ers magic? After leading the team to three straight wins, topping the Jaguars would be his best work yet. Garoppolo led a late drive that culiminated in Robbie Gould’s game-winning field goal with no time left in last Sunday’s 25-23 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Garoppolo, who has completed 69 percent of his passes and thrown for 1,026 yards in three starts, faces a Jaguars defense that’s allowed the least amount of points in the NFL (just 14.9 points per game). The Jags (10-4) also have accumulated 51 sacks and forced 31 turnovers. The 49ers (4-10) rushed for just 51 yards a week ago and will have their hands full with Jags linemen Calais Campbell (14 1/2 sacks) and Malik Jackson (8 sacks0.

Blake Bortles threw for 326 yards and three touchdowns in Jacksonville’s 45-7 shellacking of Houston last week. Unlike last week, Bortles and the offense will have rookie running back Leonard Fournette back. He sat out last week with a quad injury but has rushed for 923 yards (8th in the league) and eight touchdowns for the NFL’s No. 1 rushing attack.Like the 49ers, Jacksonville comes into the game riding a three-game winning streak. The Jags can also clinch the AFC South division title.
