Crabtree’s 58 receiving yards continued his streak of not producing a 100-yard receiving game during the 2014 season. The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.
Crabtree hauled in just three of the eight passes thrown his way, but showed the big-play ability we have been hoping for when he did catch it. Crabtree scored on a 48-yard play that saw him fight through tackles and race past much of the Giants' secondary for the score, his fourth of the season and first in the last four games.
Crabtree had no passes for more than 40 yards through the first eight games of the season, but now has two over the last two games. He has still been a big part of the team's game plan, with five games of at least seven targets in a row, he just hasn't been getting the job done. Hopefully his recent run can get him going down the stretch.
Crabtree finished with a team-high 85 receiving yards on three catches. He did most of his damage on a 48-yard catch-and-run touchdown with 11:38 left in the third quarter, which put San Francisco ahead 16-7.
The 85 receiving yards were a season high for Crabtree, who has surpassed 80 yards three times this season. The 49ers are back action Week 12 vs. Washington.
Jim Harbaugh claims all is well in regard to his relationship with
Some eyebrows were raised when Crabtree brushed past Harbaugh in the locker room after the Sunday win and when the former discussed his dwindling role in the offense following the game. But Harbaugh has tried to calm the waters.
"I don't think [there's a problem]," he said via the Sacramento Bee. "Seems to be doing a fantastic job and getting the ball a lot."
Crabtree, who has played less than 70 percent of the snaps over the past two games, has exceeded 10 targets only in Week 3. He has 21 catches for 237 yards and just one touchdown over the last six games combined. Those are rather meager numbers, especially considering he's in his contract year.
Crabtree was targeted eight times, which was second on the team behind Anquan Boldin’s 15 targets.
Carbtree did contribute a big play, with a 51-yard reception late in the fourth quarter, which setup kicker Phil Dawson’s 45-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.
The 49ers will play at the New York Giants in Week 11.
