The Cardinals beat the 49ers immediately in San Francisco, and at this level the 49ers shedding isn’t actually information — they’re now Zero-9 on the season.
But what occurred on the finish of the sport was positively information: A late hit on 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard led to a brawl that noticed three gamers ejected.
The three ejected gamers — Cardinals defensive finish Frostee Rucker, Cardinals linebacker Haason Reddick and 49ers operating again Carlos Hyde — will possible be fined this week, and different gamers are prone to be fined as nicely. The brawl marred the tip of the sport.
Of course, the Cardinals’ 20-10 win wasn’t a lot of a sport. The 49ers stink, and though the Cardinals aren’t an excellent group both, they gained this one handily. Drew Stanton was respectable, throwing for 201 yards and two touchdowns, whereas Cardinals operating again Adrian Peterson completed with an unbelievable career-high 37 carries for 159 yards.
Peterson now has two 100-yard performances in his three video games as a Cardinal, a stunning degree of manufacturing contemplating what a non-factor he was throughout his four-game stint in New Orleans to begin the season. Peterson appears to be like like he’s been rejuvenated in Arizona.
That in all probability gained’t be sufficient to get the Four-Four Cardinals to the playoffs, but it surely ought to at the least preserve them alive within the playoff race into December.
