Jimmy Garoppolo did not have a great Week 1.
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback tossed one touchdown and three interceptions in a 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
But boy, was that one touchdown something special:
Jimmy Garoppolo with an epic throw
Dante Pettis with an epic catch

Garoppolo is somehow able to shake free from pressure before uncorking a perfect pass to Dante Pettis despite a 330-pound man bearing down on him.
Among NFL players, only Aaron Rodgers will make more money in 2018 than Garoppolo, but plays like this are why the 49ers had no problem paying Jimmy G big money.
