The San Francisco 49ers appear to have struck gold with the trade that sent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the Bay Area from the New England Patriots in October.

Garoppolo engineered a fourth-quarter comeback in the final two minutes of Sunday’s Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans at Levi’s Stadium. After the Titans kicked a field goal to take a 23-22 lead with 1:07 remaining, Garoppolo led the 49ers right down the field and into range for a field goal by Robbie Gould.

The veteran kicker nailed the 45-yard attempt as time expired to give San Francisco the win.

Garoppolo now is 5-0 as a starting quarterback in the NFL, with the last three of those wins coming as the 49ers signal-caller over the last three weeks.

Garoppolo finished with 381 passing yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday’s win.
