C.J. Beathard’s already had an excellent preseason run for the San Francisco 49ers, but he outdid himself Thursday night.
The former Iowa quarterback, who rushed for -13 yards as a senior (though that includes sacks), blazed through an unsuspecting Chargers defense for a 62-yard touchdown.
This man just put the entire Chargers D on skates…

Beathard earned the start in the 49ers’ fourth preseason game after throwing four touchdowns and 1 interceptions on 21-for-36 passing in his previous preseason game.
