Trey Lance displays resiliency before leading two touchdown drives vs. Chargers

Depending on when you started watching the game, you would’ve either thought that Trey Lance wasn’t deserving of being the No. 3 overall pick in this past NFL Draft or that he should be the starter for the 49ers come Week 1.

Following a Jimmy Garoppolo interception on the opening possession, Trey Lance was inserted into the first-team offense by Kyle Shanahan. Lance hit Deebo Samuel for a first down, but the drive stalled when he couldn’t complete a third-down throw to the same wideout.

It didn’t get any better for the first-round pick, as his next two offensive possessions ended up in an interception and a punt.
