Cardinals milestones in reach vs. 49ers

49ers-Cardinals Capsule

But the 49ers could not ride that offensive momentum against the Cardinals. A 5-for-5 performance will do that, and it still wasn't enough for a win. Pierre Garcon bounced back from a three-catch, 26-yard effort at Seattle in Week 2 by registering 142 yards on seven receptions versus Los Angeles.

RED ZONE: The Cardinals rank 29th in red-zone touchdown percentage, reaching the end zone 27.27 percent of the time compared with 64.81 percent a year ago.

About half the members of the San Francisco 49ers knelt during the National Anthem before their game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona, while some of those kneeling also placed their hands over their hearts.

For the San Francisco, the most disappointing takeaway of the game comes from the fact that the team was unable to find the end zone throughout almost 70 minutes of gameplay.

Another game, another big play for Fitzgerald, who has now gone 199 straight games with at least one reception.

The positive, after a awful Week 3 for Robert Saleh's group, was the defense, which delivered its third extremely impressive showing in four games thanks in most part to the strength of its front. The 49ers were held out of the endzone and the veteran QB tossed an interception.

The Arizona offensive line has become a huge issue for the Cardinals. Keep in mind: The 49ers had tallied only three sacks in their first three games combined.

The three players who had knelt stood for the British anthem, "God Save the Queen". With players either injured or contemplating retirement, the identity for Arizona's offensive line has been at best, questionable. I get it - the Cardinals had done little on offense, and you figure a field goal might be too much to overcome - but I thought the Niners should've gone for the kill. Arizona ranks 24th in the National Football League in opponent 3rd Down conversion percentage, while San Francisco ranks a terrible 28th in the same category. It would be the first time a Cardinals player has done that since Darnell Dockett in 2007.

Can a desperate team play better because of its desperation? In Sunday's early game in London, three Miami Dolphins players - wide receiver Kenny Stills, safety Michael Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas - knelt during the anthem. Coming off a disappointing 2016 season, if Arizona accrues a few more losses in the upcoming weeks I wouldn't be shocked if his seat start to get warm. He continues to play at a high level, and remains as QB Carson Palmer's primary target. He was among the players kneeling Sunday, a group that included linebacker NaVorro Bowman, running back Carlos Hyde and defensive lineman Arik Armstead. If San Francisco wants any chance at winning this game they must focus on stopping Fitzgerald, and after seeing what they are working with at the CB position, this doesn't seem likely. "Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem". Trump made his initial comments in Alabama the day after the 49ers played the Rams on September 21, and he has continued to express similar sentiments via social media.

I am not a sports fan and I am particularly not a football fan. I like San Francisco getting the points here.

Newton said he also wanted people to see "the joy. that I go out there and play with". Quarterback Carson Palmer has drawn heavy scrutiny about his aging arm strength and decision-making. Palmer was hit a total of 16 times, being sacked six times.
