Arizona Cardinals Destroyed by San Francisco 49ers
The odds were definitely against the Arizona Cardinals in their lopsided 23-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Candlestick Park.
The hometown team was in enemy territory, playing in the rain, and were facing the current NFC West leaders (and one of the top 10 defenses in the NFL) with a second-string quarterback who kept tossing interceptions.
As a result, San Francisco roasted the Red Birds and ate them alive, controlling the game from start to finish. They dominated on offense and led the game in time of possession and numerous scoring stats, in addition to waylaying the Cardinals offense and forced five turnovers.
