Jimmy G, 49ers Hold Off Cardinals To Go 8-0

Jonathan Grant | November 1st, 2019

There are more than one or two situations that would have you worrying if you were the coach of an NFL team that was undefeated and wanted to remain that way. One such potential ‘trap’ game would have to be the the spot the San Francisco 49ers found themselves in on Thursday night.

On a short week and on the road, it would have been totally understandable for them to lose their unbeaten record. Instead, however, they improved to 8-0 on the season after a 25-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Jimmy Garoppolo had a career outing, throwing for four touchdowns and 317 yards on 28-37 passing. Emmanuel Sanders also stood out, making seven catches, one for a touchdown, and racking up 112 yards in the process. Garoppolo’s opposite number, Kyler Murray, had a pretty good showing, too. The defending Heisman winner threw two TD’s for 241 yards on 17-24 passing. He got a lot of help from new running back Kenyan Drake, who had a touchdown and 110 yards on his debut with the team. Still yet, the Cardinals were down 14 at the end of three quarters, which basically had killed off their chances of ending the 49ers’ quick start despite a fourth-quarter comeback attempt.
