Although Purdy's 12-play, 69-yard game-winning drive was clutch, the second-year quarterback battled before it.

Purdy started the game with a glove but switched to bare-handed after struggling with the damp football.

"Early on, obviously, I put on the glove for the first drive," she said. As rain fell and sprinkled, I took it off.

"I dropped back with the ball damp from the grass, which hindered accuracy. I need to improve in football, man."

On Monday, Kyle Shanahan addressed if the rain affected his quarterback in a conference call.

 I saw the first play of the game, where he had a swing route, the ball slipped, and a couple hit him.

Some got Brock, some he presumably missed trying to toss around a guy to avoid tipping, and a couple he can't explain.
