Aiyuk and the Niners had just defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 22-16 on Nov. 13, and Aiyuk had done his part with six grabs for 84 yards. But when he went home and watched the game film, it was a third-down drop in the end zone that he couldn't shake.

With about nine minutes left in the third quarter, Aiyuk lost his defender with a perfect in-breaking route and dropped a pass from Jimmy Garoppolo that hit him in the chest.
