Brock Purdy gets meme treatment after stinker against Ravens

Brock Purdy at a press conference

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy had the worst game of his career Monday against the Baltimore Ravens. Fans made sure to add insult to injury.

Purdy went 18/32 for 255 yards with no touchdowns on Christmas in a 33-19 49ers loss to the Ravens at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. The vaunted Ravens defense intercepted Purdy 4 times and sacked him twice.

The second-year pro became the first 49ers QB to throw four picks since Colin Kaepernick nearly a decade ago.

Some fans on X declared Purdy’s MVP candidacy dead after his letdown against the Ravens. The memes were flowing on social media.

Others clowned Purdy for his interceptions and passing ability.

Even the NFL’s official YouTube account took a shot at Purdy for his poor play.

Purdy’s performance was unequivocally the worst in the 49ers QB’s nascent NFL tenure. The Ravens game was just the second time in his career Purdy failed to throw a touchdown pass across 20 starts. It was the first time he failed to record a TD entirely.

Purdy had also never thrown more than two interceptions prior to doubling that mark in Monday’s contest.

In a season with no clear frontrunner for MVP, Purdy appeared poised to lock up the award heading into the contest.

One game doesn’t completely revoke Purdy’s candidacy for a season-long award. But such a huge meltdown against a rival Super Bowl contender will surely be something MVP voters will keep in mind.
