The 49ers lost last week at home to the Seahawks in a game that wasn’t really that close after the first quarter. The Seahawks started slow but then scored at will on the soft 49ers secondary. Jimmy G got hurt and Trey Lance came in but couldn’t do too much to turn the tides.
The Cardinals, on the other hand, had a very impressive win on the road against the Rams. You could say it was a let down spot for the Rams, but either way, the Cardinals looked extremely good. Will we see the let down for Arizona now?
Football Outsiders has the 49ers ranked 13th through four games and the Cardinals ranked 3rd. PFF has similar power rankings and team stats for these two teams as well. The consistency between the sites makes me confident that they’re accurate.
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco was actually pretty effective moving the ball in their last game against Seattle. They also weren’t bad on defense, but they still lost the game, and it wasn’t that close. Football Outsiders had the 49ers as the better team in that game despite losing.
Their run defense was solid, and pass defense wasn’t all that bad. They limited Russell Wilson to 149 yards, but that was on 16/23 passing, 2 TDs, and a passer rating of 116. He ran for 26 yards on 4 carries.
Trey Lance ended up with stats similar to Russell Wilson. He went 9/18 for 157 yards, 2 TDs and a passer rating of 117.1. He ran for 41 yards on 7 carries. If Trey Lance plays this week, it will be interesting to see if the play calling changes as well to better suit his skills.
Deebo Samuel had a big game with 8 receptions for 156 yards and 2 TDs. Their rushing attack wasn’t bad either, with Sermon getting 4.7 yards per carry and 89 total yards.
Arizona made people take notice after they easily beat the Rams in what was supposed to be one of the best games of the week. Kyler Murray was 24/32 for 268 yards and 2 TDs. He had a 120.3 passer rating.
Murray is expected to do so much for this team that can’t run the ball, that if he’s not great they’ll struggle. It is impressive that he put up those numbers against the Rams defense, although their secondary is their weakest part of the team.
Arizona’s weak link is their run defense. It seems like they sacrificed their run defense for a pass rush. Maybe it isn’t a bad strategy since passing is far more important to a team’s probability of winning than rushing.
