49ers at Cardinals: Preview, prediction, odds and pick

49ers at Cardinals: Preview, prediction, odds and pick”

Coach Bruce Arians said he may have abandoned the rushing attack too early during Monday night's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. When Palmer has been given time to throw he has looked sharp, however, the Cardinals haven't been able to give Palmer much time. San Francisco has played the other two NFC West teams tough, with the two-point loss to the Rams and a 12-9 defeat at Seattle. After throwing an INT on their first offensive play, and looking all but done midway through the 4th, the 49ers rallied themselves back into the game with a chance to win late in the 4th.

With 10 players on their official injury list this week, including nine players that were unable to complete full practices, the Cardinals are hurting a lot more than the 49ers are right now. The 49ers seek their first win of the year as they travel to Arizona on Sunday for a division matchup.

All eyes will be on the Cardinals offensive line. Palmer has been sacked the third-most times in the National Football League at 11. OT Jared Veldheer had his hands full with Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence last Monday, and after being called out by his GM, his play must improve.

For the Cardinals their loss raised substantial questions about their offensive line as Carson Palmer was sacked six times, while the running game remains virtually non-existent minus the MVP caliber talent of David Johnson. Their defense was stout for the first two games while there was nothing to shout about on offense bar the play of Carlos Hyde. Through three weeks, it isn't quite clear what the 49ers are good at. Whichever team ends with better conversion percentage in this game, could easily find themselves as the victor.

But the only Arizona victory this season was in overtime at Indianapolis. Arians has struggled throughout his tenure with game management, which was on full display last week-highlighted by an bad challenge in the 4th quarter against Dallas. The San Fransisco 49ers are the only team fading out quickly, winless through three games. He continues to play at a high level, and remains as QB Carson Palmer's primary target.

It would be the first time in three years that the Cardinals (1-2) have not beaten San Francisco. On Thursday, Goodwin caught five balls for 62 yards against the Rams, and really flashed on some of his plays. "I felt like we let a few things get away from us from a technical standpoint". Consider him a WR sleeper this week in all formats.

"I can not wait", he told Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

For the 49ers, the pressure will be firmly on the pass rush to deliver in the same way Dallas' did to disrupt Palmer's rhythm, though that may be easier said than done with San Francisco having recorded just three sacks so far.

Schedule makers did the injury-plagued Cardinals no favors, as the 49ers come into this game with four extra days of rest.
