6:27 pm
mistake for him. ensuing possession for the cardinals mccoy hands it off the james connor, who had himself a day. 13 yard touchdown. cardinals up seven nothing. connor was just getting started after an eric armstead personal foul on third down the drive was alive and then the trick play for the cardinals. it is antoine wesley from christian kirk, the wide receiver down to the one connor would score on the next play. second quarter, though, 17 nothing. the 40 hours trying to get something going here down 17 to nothing, and they do garoppolo to kittle and look at this kind of like a backyard sandlot play. jimmy says. just go that way, and i'll find you and he does. so it's 17 to 7. arizona is still up. at the half third quarter, more colt mccoy and more specifically james connor, the running back screen not really supposed to go for a 45 yard touchdown, but arizona will take it bad tackling bad defense by the niners today. that's his third touchdown of the day. the cardinals go on to win at 31 to
6:28 pm
17 to improve to eight and one 49ers dropped 23 and 5000 and i was very surprised that we don't play well today that we had a great week of practice. thought guys were on it in the meetings all week. um and i felt their energy before the game was very caught off by how he played. you know, i thought we did come out, firing at the beginning offensively, and then they got two turnovers on us, knocking those balls out, which i think took away points. we've got to make that play. obviously that george had done the same to keep us. i think. i mean, those are opening drivers are opening drive. um once we got behind and stuff, you know, defense, we have to clean all that up. i was very disappointed that whole game and, um there's not one place i can start with that. meantime derek carr and the raiders coming off a bye week and a very emotional week back in east rutherford, new jersey, trying to focus on the new york giants seven giants late first along raider drive capped off by that car to renfro touchdown
