Reserve cornerbacks Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane have so far stood up to the test.

The 49ers threw Maxwell’s way nine times, according to Pro Football Focus. Those receivers caught five passes for 61 yards. But Maxwell also had an interception and two passes defended, and Colin Kaepernick’s QB rating when targeting Maxwell was 37.0 (compared to 67.5 for the game). Lane, playing the nickel now, gave up just one catch for 13 yards on four targets with three passes defended.
