Arizona has had a lengthy time off after playing last Thursday night at home. The Cardinals were handed their first loss of the season by the Green Bay Packers 24-21 on a last second Kyler Murray goal line interception.
The Cardinals looked like they were going to rally to win their eighth straight game or at the very least tie for overtime. Neither happened as the second-and-goal pass was not expected by AJ Green who didn’t turn around for the ball and it was picked off by Rasul Douglas.
Kyler Murray had his worst performance of the season as he failed to get in a rhythm with Green Bay controlling the time of possession. Murray finished 22/33 passing for 274 yards but couldn’t find the end zone and threw 2 interceptions.
The Cardinals were playing their first game without defensive end J.J. Watt, who will receive shoulder surgery in the coming weeks that will end his season. Kyler Murray was rolled up on a late run that caused the quarterback to wear a walking boot after the game. His status is day-to-day.
San Francisco 49ers
Garoppolo threw for 322 yards and ran for 2 touchdowns, and San Francisco beat the short-handed Chicago Bears 33-22 Sunday to snap a four-game losing streak. It was a homecoming game for Jimmy G, who is from suburban Arlington Heights and played college ball at Eastern Illinois. He did not disappoint his family and friends on Sunday.
Deebo Samuel had 6 catches for 171 yards. That gave him 819, breaking Hall of Famer Jerry Rice’s club record of 781 through the first seven games of a season set in 1986. Elijah Mitchell also had a very solid down on the ground, carrying 18 times for 137 yards and a touchdown.
The 49ers have shown the ability to play with any team in the league but they will need to bring their game to another level if they hope to stay afloat in the loaded NFC West division. A win over the division best Cardinals to reach the .500 mark could be a season saving win.
WR Deebo Samuel is 2nd in the league with 819 receiving yards on 44 receptions and 4 touchdowns. The former 2nd rounder pick has seen his production explode this season despite the team’s quarterback uncertainty.

Arizona suffered their first loss of the season in heartbreaking fashion to an NFC Contender. There’s no reason to doubt the Cardinal’s aren’t legit but now that they have a loss they definitely appear beatable.
There are some injury concerns as well as Murray, Hopkins, and Reddick are all dealing with injuries sustained in the game that could be their availability in question for this contest. Meanwhile, San Francisco is getting healthier and may have found a rhythm offensively.
Jimmy G had his best game of the season last week and may have solidified himself back as the team’s best option at quarterback. Garoppolo missed the first contest when these teams played in Arizona and the 49ers offense looked pedestrian, only scoring 10 points. I think they’ll have more luck this go around especially with Mitchell on the ground.
This is a game that means a lot more to the 49ers than the Cardinals and I think that will show on Sunday when both teams take the field in Levi’s Stadium.
Take San Fran to win outright.
