49ers Record Highest-Scoring First Half Under HC Kyle Shanahan

It was a rough start for the San Francisco 49ers as the Detroit Lions offense came out strong with a fast run game to open the first quarter.

It was a different story for San Francisco. On the first snap for the 49ers offense, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo fumbled the ball on a snap in the pocket with a misconnection between the quarterback and center, Alex Mack, later recovered by Lions linebacker Jamie Collins.
