The Arizona Cardinals fans better hope the squad plays one heck of a game on Sunday as the odds are decidedly against them. Arizona and the San Francisco 49ers will face off in an NFC West battle at 4:05 p.m. ET at Levi’s Stadium. Arizona is limping into the game on a three-game losing streak.
It was close but no cigar for Arizona as they fell 30-27 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. WR Christian Kirk put forth a good effort for the losing side as he caught six passes for 138 yards and three TDs. One of the most thrilling moments of the contest was Kirk’s 69-yard TD reception down the right side of the field in the third quarter. Kirk’s sharp afternoon set his single-game touchdown high for the season.
Meanwhile, San Francisco fought the good fight in their overtime matchup but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. They fell just short of the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 27-24. QB Jimmy Garoppolo had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw one interception and fumbled the ball twice with only 5.39 yards per passing attempt.
The San Francisco defensive unit accumulated four sacks for a loss of 33 yards. Leading the way was MLB Fred Warner and his two sacks.
Having both suffered close losses, both of these teams will no doubt be fighting for every inch to win this one. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Cardinals rank first in the league when it comes to forced fumbles, having caused 13 on the season. San Francisco is completely their equal: they also come into the game with 13 forced fumbles. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the game.
WHY 49ERS COULD WIN: The 49ers have already beaten the Cardinals in Arizona, outlasting them 28-25 on Halloween night. … Jimmy Garoppolo tore apart the Arizona secondary while enjoying his finest statistical game of the season. Garoppolo had 317 passing yards while throwing a career-best four touchdown passes. … San Francisco looks to get its running attack back on track after the Seahawks slowed the 49ers down. The 49ers should have an easier time against the Cardinals, who have allowed 28.8 points per game and have given up more total yards (412.5 per game) than any NFL team.
WHY ARIZONA COULD WIN: If Kyler Murray makes like Russell Wilson against the 49ers, the Cardinals have a fighting chance. Actually, Murray had better stats against San Francisco than Wilson had on Monday. Murray went 17-of-24 for 241 yards and two TD passes for a 130.7 quarterback rating against the 49ers. … Murray seems to be hitting his stride as he’s helped Arizona score at least 25 points in five of its last six games. … The Cards’ pass rush could be an issue, particularly since the 49ers will be without left tackle Joe Staley. Chandler Jones (with an NFL-best 11.5 sacks) is the biggest threat to the 49ers.
