We have reached week five of the NFL season and this is a matchup between two teams who wishes they could have gotten off to a better start to the season.
In this one the winless Arizona Cardinals will make the trip to Levi’s Stadium to take on the struggling San Francisco 49ers.
Everyone knew it was going to be a trying season for the Arizona Cardinals but not many expected them to be this bad.
They come into this game with a 0-4 record and they have already turned the keys over to Josh Rosen, a guy they were trying to ease into the NFL.
He made his first career start against the Seattle Seahawks and he played decent and made some good throws but at the end of the day he still looked like a rookie.
Against the Seahawks he had a 55 percent completion percentage throwing for 180 yards and one touchdown. He also didn’t throw an interception.
On the defensive side of the ball the Seahawks haven’t been terrible, but they haven’t done enough with struggling quarterback play to come out ahead.
In this game they will probably have a chance to create a couple of turnovers and they need to make life difficult and try to give their team a short field.
San Francisco 49ers
On the other side of this matchup is the San Francisco 49ers who had high hopes going into the season but a few bad breaks here and there have done them in, including losing their starting quarterback.
Jimmy Garappolo is out because of a torn ACL, maybe a self-induced injury which means they are turning to CJ Beathard.
So far this season he has thrown for 298 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He makes good plays but at times he looks like a guy who tries too hard and it actually hurts the team.
On the defensive side of the ball the 49ers have been terrible giving up 29.5 points per game and their first interception on the season came just last week.
On the defensive side of the ball they need to be better in this game and they need to create probably a couple of turnovers.
Beathard also just needs to make the play that is there for him, not the one that will win them the game right there.
It’s okay to get three or four yards on a play instead of six and get lit up.

I really like the 49ers in this game.
NFL Free Week 5 Score Prediction: San Francisco 27 – Arizona 17
I don’t like the way the Cardinals have played and going on the road I think they struggle. Rosen isn’t going to handle the tough environment well and I think he throws a few interceptions.
