Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Arizona Cardinals vs San Francisco 49ers 11/17/2019 – The Arizona Cardinals (3-6-1) will be needing their prayers when they descend against the San Francisco 49ers (8-1). Going against the current league leader can be a daunting task. Top sports books are mostly betting on a 49ers win, but some have hinted that an unexpected result may be in the works.
Arizona Cardinals vs San Francisco 49ers 11/17/2019
The Cardinals were recently brought down by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a 30-27 scoreboard. The heartbreaking near-win meant that they lacked steam to pump in one last goal or touchdown. QB Kyler Murray was a beacon of hope, with 27/44 and 324 air yards. He further pumped life into the team by chucking in 3 thrown TDs. The RB, meanwhile, has carried the ball for only 3 times. It was a sign that the rush attempts were totally shot down. Christian Kirk compensated by catching the ball 6 times for 138 yards.
The Arizona Cardinals had a disastrous performance, with only 18 rush attempts out of 65 plays. They attempted to clamp down on defense, but the opposing team still got away with a 63% throw completion rate and 26 successful runs. They were outclassed in yardage, with their 417 yards falling short of the opponent’s 457.
If the Cardinals only had energy and opportunity for a last-ditch run or throw attempt, they might have snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. As it is, they really need to sort out their offense. Their mixed-bag offense isn’t doing their win-loss record any good. They’ll need to focus as they’re about to face the NFL’s top team.

San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers took a shocking defeat at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks with a 27-24 scoreboard. QB Jimmy Garoppolo was fighting till the end, concluding with a 24/46 and 248 passing yards. He still connected with a tossed TD and a pick. Tevin Coleman ran 9 times, granting the team an extra 40 yards. Deebo Samuel received the ball 8 times for 112 yards.
The 49ers seem to have been outsmarted by their opponent. Based on the figures, they didn’t get to do the rush offense that brought them to their previously-unbeaten record. They rushed for 27 out of 78 plays. This is a low number of rushing as compared to their previous matchup. They tried to compensate through defense, but they still allowed 71% throw completion rate, and the opponent slipped in 34 run attempts.
The 49ers gained only 302 yards as opposed to the enemy’s 336 yards. The team needs to be aware that their upcoming matches won’t be a walk in the park anymore. All the teams know their go-to strategy and are actively developing ways to counter these.
