Arizona Cardinals Vs San Francisco 49ers
The Cardinals will be heading to San Francisco to face the 49ers in a game that has the potential to be an exciting matchup. This year, the Cardinals have been on a hot streak and have managed to win their last four games and remain in the top spot in the NFL’s Western Conference. The team also has a pair of talented offensive players in Joey Bosa and Kyler Murray. Combined with their solid defense, they should be able to get the job done against the 49ers.
The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers meet in the final international game of the season. The 49ers have a narrow 32-29 lead over the Cardinals. A win tonight puts them on the same record as the Seattle Seahawks, who are on a bye this week.
The Cardinals have struggled against the run this year. They are currently ranked ninth in yards per carry and are averaging just 6.6 yards per play. The 49ers have a remarkably consistent defense that has allowed just 301.1 yards per game.
The 49ers are missing two key players. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and DL Arik Armstead are both out. But they have other players who are healthy. Elijah Mitchell is back after being placed on injured reserve.
It’s a big week in the NFC West as the Cardinals and 49ers meet in Mexico City on Monday night. Both teams are still alive in the race for the top spot. The Cardinals are hoping to win their second straight game while the Niners are trying to win three in a row.
The Cardinals are expected to be without Chase Edmonds, D.J. Humphries, and Zach Ertz. That leaves Josh Jones to take over left tackle and Trace McSorley to fill in at quarterback.
Despite a loss to Seattle in Week 6, the Cardinals have had a shaky offensive season overall. Poor snapping, miscommunication, and other sloppiness have all contributed to their struggles.
The Cardinals are also battling a hamstring injury that could keep Kyler Murray from playing in this Monday night matchup. The team announced the list of inactives.
Trent Richardson is currently leading the AAF in carries. He has 145 yards on 59 carries. He is the top fantasy asset in the AAF.
He has rushed for 11 touchdowns in the AAF. He broke several of Emmitt Smith’s high school records. He has carried 263 times in his career. He will be facing off against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. He has six touchdowns on the ground so far this year.
He has been a part of two national championship teams. He was also a part of the Crimson Tide. He was a top RB in the college game in 2012 and 2013. He was drafted in the first round, third overall by the Cleveland Browns. However, he was cut multiple times.
If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa to return. He has missed the last seven weeks with a groin injury, and he’s now on the injured reserve. His prognosis for returning to the field is about eight to ten weeks.
As expected, the Chargers will take a look at their defensive end and determine if he’s ready to go on the field. That could happen as early as Wednesday. He hasn’t been seen in practice since Week 3 due to the injury.
The team also had to take action after he was involved in a confrontation with another player last week. He was fined $28,917. This isn’t the first time he’s been fined for a confrontation.
The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers will square off at Estadio Azteca, Mexico’s famed soccer stadium, in Week 6 of the NFL regular season. This will mark the second time in five years that the two teams will meet.
The NFL has played games in Canada, Germany and London, but Monday Night Football will be the first in Mexico City. The Cardinals and Niners will face off in what should be a great showcase for fans from both sides of the border.
The 49ers have won back-to-back games and tied for the division lead in the NFC West. Those wins have helped the team improve to 5-4 overall. However, the team has yet to reach the playoffs.
