Twitter Reacts to 49ers DB Jimmie Ward’s Game-Changing Performance

In 1,800 days, Jimmie Ward of the San Francisco 49ers hadn’t touched a football in a live NFL game.

He also came into Monday Night Football with three questions about the 7-2 Los Angeles Rams: Why does Sean McVay keep throwing it his way? Why couldn’t Matthew Stafford do it with his former team? And finally, how does the Rams keep getting everyone?

Well, the veteran free safety set the tone in the Rams’ 31-10 upset…and caused quite a stir on social media.

Ward’s Personal Streak Comes to an End

Ward, according to Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee, hasn’t intercepted a pass in nearly five years.

Jimmie Ward hasn’t had an interception since December.

11th of November, 2016.

Ward’s final interception occurred before John Lynch took over as general manager, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic.

Ward’s first interception since Trent Baalke was the 49ers’ general manager in 2016.

Ward was also dealing with a quad injury before the MNF game, but Lombardi said he was fine.

The 49ers will play the Rams tonight, and trade acquisition Charles Omenihu will make his team debut.

The defense will be without two key players from last week’s game.

Ward, on the other hand, emerged as Stafford’s surprise go-to receiver in the first quarter, despite the fact that he was playing with a new weapon in the form of Odell Beckham Jr.

Before the Shanahan era, Jimmie Ward hadn’t intercepted a pass since 2016.

Ward has two interceptions of Matthew Stafford, one of which is a pick-6, in two Rams possessions.

Ward’s career total entering this game was the same.

Ward snatched the ball and the Rams’ soul in the manner described below.

Ward Picks: A Breakdown

LA attacked deep, as is typical of McVay and the Rams.

This time, they clearly wanted Beckham Jr. to be a part of the offense and sidelines.

Except Ward, who is a single high safety, capitalizes on Stafford’s overthrow.
