Talanoa Hufanga is the only player in the NFL this season to accomplish this

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ A feat that speaks to Hufanga’s versatility 49ers safety Talanoa Hufanga has quickly become a household name in his first full season as a starting member of one of the prominent defenses in the National Football League. The sophomore defensive back out of USC has rapidly established himself as one of the most impactful players on this 49ers' defense and among the elite at the safety position league-wide. Hufanga is the only player in the NFL this season to record 4-plus interceptions and five plus tackles for loss, a statistic that embodies the...

49ers avoid a potential letdown performance in shutout victory over the Saints 13-0

49ers avoid a potential letdown performance in shutout victory over the Saints 13-0

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Another gem of a performance by the 49ers defense that involved multiple turnovers. Fred Warner took advantage of a well-timed blitz from safety Talanoa Hufanga for his patented peanut punch to force a fumble against Alvin Kamara on the fourth play of the game. Then, the 49ers picked up where they left off against the Cardinals by forcing a turnover. That gave the offense a short field, as they took over from the Saints 43-yard line. Kyle Shanahan wasted no time getting Deebo Samuel, who was questionable with a hamstring injury, involved as he caught...

The 49ers picked up where they left off against the Cardinals by forcing a turnover. That gave the offense a short field, as they took over from the Saints 43-yard line. Kyle Shanahan wasted no time getting Deebo Samuel, who was questionable with a hamstring injury, involved as he caught a pass on 3rd & 6 and that went for 20 yards. Jimmy...

49ers outlast the Chargers in 22-16 victory

49ers outlast the Chargers in 22-16 victory

Photo by Ric Tapia/Icon Sportswire via The defense did its job and the offense came through late The Chargers wasted no time as they marched 75 yards in seven plays on the game's opening drive. Justin Herbert completed passes for 14, 17, and 32 yards en route to a touchdown. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a great start for Dre Greenlaw or Talanoa Hufanga. The 49ers' offense got around midfield, as they tend to do. The question, as always, was whether or not they’d punch it in. A 20-yard reception to Brandon Aiyuk put the offense in the red zone. An Elijah Mitchell carry...

PFF names Talanoa Hufanga has the 49ers biggest surprise in the first half

Photo by Ric Tapia/Icon Sportswire via Hufanga got off to a scorching hot start For the diehard 49er fans, most seasons are full of surprises. This year has been no different. First, the Trey Lance era came to a screeching halt after 1.5 games. Then, Elijah Mitchell’s promising encore to his rookie season was put on ice after six carries. Oh, and the Niners traded for this guy named Christian McCaffrey. There have been plenty of pleasant surprises from the Niners this season. Aaron Banks has been everything and then some in his first full season as a starter at left...
