Upcoming Travel Schedule Will Test 49ers

San Francisco got the ball first in overtime and wasted as much time as possible in the 10-minute period before kicking a field goal with just over two minutes left. Truly, snaking the shower drains in a women's locker room or cleaning up three-day old dog diarrhea would have been more enjoyable than suffering through what ended up being almost FOUR hours of mediocre football. If that decision was taken to appease critics who say sitting out the anthem is disrespectful to military veterans and the country as a whole, it was not entirely successful - sections of fans booed both teams. Doing so will put even more pressure on Hoyer to try and make something happen, which could lead to mistakes. His catches on the first two plays, dump-and-runs gained 11 yards each and jump-started the offense. He concluded his remarks, saying it's appropriate that he's being honored in a game in which the Cardinals are facing the 49ers because no other team is as responsible for him earning this honor.

Unfortunately, this means they're also a team that just isn't fun to watch.

"You've got to be able to stay on pace".

"How do we address the root issue for the players on this?"

"The first play, I felt so bad", Fitzgerald said.

"Things are going fast, you're trying to get the communication in for the calls, you get it to NaVorro, he relays it to the D-Linemen, the secondary", Shanahan said. Which right now is a lot of dudes on defense.

"I have been playing this game my entire life and I've met so many people from different races and ethnicities and became the best of friends to them, became like brothers to them", Bowman said.

Sunday was rookie Solomon Thomas' best performance yet, logging a sack and four quarterbacks hits against the Cardinals' banged up offensive line. Dumervil got sacks Nos.

On the season, Palmer has 925 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions, while Fitzgerald is the top Arizona receiver with 34 targets, 22 receptions, 244 yards and a TD. Instead of a 10-6 lead, Arizona settled on a field goal to tie the game at 6. It was a nice rebound for the 42-year old kicker who had already shanked three field goals in this young season. On Thursday, Goodwin caught five balls for 62 yards against the Rams, and really flashed on some of his plays. "I did it to show black pride, because I am an African American", said Newton.

The Arizona Cardinals were back in the nest for the second time in six days, defeating to the San Francisco 49ers 18-15 in overtime Sunday afternoon at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

A week later, the protests had diminished, even after the president tweeted about the anthem the day before. Almost 180 players either took a knee or protested in some other way.

Several players who stood during the national anthem held their right fists in the air during the song.

Like our San Francisco 49ers Facebook page for more 49ers news, commentary and conversation. All of the other uniformed Dolphins and their opponents, the New Orleans Saints, stood along the sidelines, many with their right hands over their hearts.

"For more than a year, members of our team have protested the oppression and social injustices still present in our society". Bravo to the 49ers for that.

Kyle Juszczyk, Jaquiski Tartt, and Brock Coyle, all of whom sustained concussions against the Rams are listed as questionable for Sunday but all of them had a full practice on Friday and are hopeful of play.
