News: Bethea ended the 2014 on a quiet note, recording just four tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
Impact: Bethea finishes his first season in San Francisco with 86 tackles (72 solo), four interceptions, a sack, and a forced fumble. The 86 tackles were below his career-average of 100.8, but the four interceptions matched a career-high. Bethea is under contract through 2018, so he should continue to rack up the tackles and interceptions for the 49ers next season.

News: Bethea had his best game as a member of the 49ers on Saturday, collecting eight tackles (seven solo) and taking an interception to house in the overtime loss to San Diego.
Impact: With 82 combined tackles and four interceptions on the season, Bethea put together a solid campaign in his first season with San Francisco. The tackles are a little bit under his career averages in Indianapolis, but the four picks ties a career-high. With fellow safety Eric Reid (concussion) likely out next week, Bethea should have another opportunity to put up strong numbers in the 49ers' season finale against Arizona next week.
