Week Four San Francisco 49ers Keys to Victory

49ers-Cardinals Capsule Cardinals, 49ers desperately seeking win (Oct 01, 2017)

If the Cardinals beat the 49ers, it will be the 43rd win Arians has had as coach of the team.

The San Francisco 49ers know moral victories won't get a team very far in the NFL.

The division rival 9ers will be bringing their 0-3 record to Glendale this Sunday, but they won't be bringing an "0-4" mindset with them.

Today, running back Carlos Hyde looks to continue his hot streak to the season.

"I felt it a little bit in the game but it didn't slow me down, so we'll see (Monday)", said Hyde, who entered as the NFL's third-leading rusher. The 49ers face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Arizona's offensive line is badly banged up.

As always, Niner Noise has your in-game thread with scoring updates and a comment thread you can participate in at the bottom of the article. So is this 49ers defense more of what it showed in the first two games or a unit that's trending in the wrong direction?

Hoyer was picked off to start the game against the Rams last week. If they can get even a modicum of production on offense, getting Carson Palmer under pressure will be the key.

Palmer completed 33 of 51 pass attempts for 357 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

OH-SO CLOSE: The 49ers have lost to their three NFC West foes by a combined eight points: Seattle 12-9, Los Angeles 41-39 and Arizona 18-15.

Both of these teams have struggled to get their opponents offenses off of the field on 3rd down this year. Cardinals will take over at their 17-yard line. Marquise Goodwin caught one pass and fell trying to catch another before he left with a concussion - his third concussion of the past two seasons. San Francisco will be able to move the ball themselves, as Arizona's talent-filled defense is giving up an average of 25.3ppg through three weeks.

The 49ers search for a franchise quarterback will remain Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch's No. 1 mandate heading into their first full offseason.

The 49ers even took a 15-12 lead over the Cardinals in OT when Robbie Gould made his fifth field goal of the game from 23 yards out. After a tough second half in Week 4, Seattle gets a struggling team whose quarterback, Jacoby Brissett, will be making only his seventh National Football League start.

Palmer said he noticed two defenders were changing sides of the field, leaving Fitzgerald 1-on-1. You can't pin this loss on Hoyer.

The Niners took the lead by moving from their 24 to the Arizona 31, where Gould's 49-yard field goal made it 3-0. "He looked like he came down and injured himself somehow, someway, but it was good to see him jump back up".

Relying on their ferocious pass rush, San Francisco got into the Arizona backfield easily, laying blow after blow on Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer every chance they got. Several teams knelt in unison before the anthem was played, then stood.

Partly attributed to poorly thrown balls by Hoyer, much of the offensive deficiencies can be placed on flat-out drops from the 49ers receiving corp. As players, coaches, ownership and staff, we are privileged to work in an environment that is a tremendous example of how people can come together for a common goal.
