Week 4 NFC West preview Where the division stacks

Week 4 NFC West preview Where the division stacks

A win for the Cardinals would mean Bruce Arians' team would keep pace in what has become a wide-open NFC West.

But when the Cardinals got the ball back with 2:25 left in the extra period at their own 25-yard line, they quickly went to work, marching for a touchdown in seven plays, capped by Carson Palmer's 19-yard pass to veteran Larry Fitzgerald, to walk away with an 18-15 victory. This was evident on a third and three in the redzone during the second quarter, Hoyer was caught up watching his protection and didn't see rookie tight end George Kittle open beyond the sticks.

"Everyone", right tackle Jared Veldheer said, "was fighting their butts off". While the Cardinals (1-2) are coming off a short week following Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys, the 49ers (0-3) enter this game well-rested after their controversial 41-39 loss to the Rams on Thursday night in Week 3.

"I was kicking my ass for bringing up this 10-minute overtime rule, but it worked out pretty good", he said. Dawson went 4-for-4 for the Cardinals in regulation, with a 50-yarder to his name, and he controlled all of the Cardinals' scoring throughout the game to set them up for the win in overtime.

Struggles in the red zone continued for the Cardinals. Dawson spent four seasons in San Francisco before leaving for Arizona as a free agent in March. Ellington would make more of an impact in the passing game catching nine passes for 86 yards.

Arizona took the opening kickoff and went 71 yards in 13 plays to the San Francisco 4.

After tying a career high with 13 catches on Monday night, Fitz had been quiet for almost all four quarters (plus overtime) of Sunday's game - until Carson Palmer found him for the game-winner with less than a minute to play in OT. Robbie Gould made all five of his field-goal attempts, Bradley Pinion averaged a whopping 50.1 yards per punt and Trent Taylor averaged a solid 10.3 yards per punt return.

It didn't stop loud boos from raining down on the team, who had advanced several steps on to the field to take the knee.

Meanwhile on offense, the backfield could suffer some personnel losses, too, depending on how running back Carlos Hyde (hip) and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (concussion) feel come game time.

For the game, Hoyer was 24-of-49 for 234 yards with an interception and a passer rating of 54.3.

However, because of questionable decisions on replay, two touchdowns were overturned. Last week various surveys showed people weren't thrilled with Trump's call for firing players who kneel but on balance they agreed with him that kneeling during the anthem is inappropriate. Fitzgerald has caught pass in 198 consecutive games.

In London, three Miami Dolphins players took knees during "The Star-Spangled Banner", sung by Darius Rucker, then stood for the British anthem "God Save the Queen". Seeing that "miscommunication" and noticing the coverage on Fitzgerald was not the same as most of the game, Fitz was the target.

Mark Dodson, an engineer, said, however, the protests were "absolutely a global initiative" and "a sign of solidarity between different races, different backgrounds, different everything basically, which is great to see". "As I've been saying the past couple weeks, we have got to control the narrative".

Fitzgerald was slow to get up, but that was because wind knocked out of him.

With David Johnson (RB) out until at least December, and a makeshift offensive line, the game plan for Arizona will likely look the same from here on out - throw, throw, and throw some more. "So it was hard to really be kind of animated and celebrate". This is quarterback play a team with aspirations of winning at least some games can not afford and, as this transitional year develops, so must thoughts of giving the keys to rookie C.J. Beathard.
