How Can San Francisco Win?
For San Francisco to win, they have to get Frank Gore involved. Last week, Gore had just 23 yards rushing on 12 carries and that’s not going to cut in Arizona this week.
There’s no question that the 49ers passing game has been brutal this year as their quarterbacks have all been subpar. But if Gore can take some carries and make opponents respect the ground game and the play-action pass, the 49ers should be in business. The Cardinals have the 27th ranked rushing defense and should pave the wave for Gore to at least have a better game than last week.
On defense, the 49ers simply need to be opportunistic. The Cardinals are one of the sloppiest teams in football and they have quarterback issues of their own. Even when they aren’t turning it over, they are still just the 31st ranked offense in the NFL. If they can double-team Larry Fitzgerald and force other players to beat them, they should be able to keep the Cardinals out of the end zone the entire game.
How Can Arizona Win?
Come up with a decent game plan.
Recent reports out of San Francisco suggests that their players are ripping the coaching staff for failing to make in-game adjustments. At a closer look of their game film, they might be right.
The 49ers have been regularly out-coached week in and week out, and the Cardinals have the better staff. They shouldn’t have any problems figuring out what the 49ers and doing and once they do, they know that the 49ers can’t make adjustments.
On defense, the Caridnals just have to stop Gore. The 49ers passing game is so abysmal that stopping Gore should mean stopping the 49ers from scoring any points. Tampa Bay proved that last week.
Now if the Cardinals can get any respectable play out of their quarterbacks and move the ball a little bit, they won’t have issues winning this one.
This one won’t be pretty to watch. Both offenses are brutal and both defense are decent, which means under might be the best play in this contest.
Overall, the 49ers are just far too predictable to trust on the road. Arizona is by no means a Super Bowl contender but they have a better coaching staff and they are at home. That should make the difference in this tight meeting.
Pick: Cardinals +1
