4th Quarter

GAME ALERT: With the 17-10 win, the Cardinals will remain undefeated on the season, with the 49ers moving to 2-3 as they approach their bye week.

QUARTER ALERT: At the 2-minute warning, the 49ers trail 17-10, as the Cardinals have a 1st & 10 at the 50-yard line, while the 49ers have no timeouts.

James Conner gets a four-yard rush on 2nd & 2 to essentially put this game away for the Arizona Cardinals.

SCORE ALERT: After failing to convert on 2nd and 3rd downs, the 49ers settles for a field goal on 4th down, bringing the game to 17-10 with 4:17 remaining in the 4th.

After the touchdown, Trey Lance fires a bullet to Deebo Samuel, who makes the catch for a 26-yard gain, getting the 49ers going down two scores.

SCORE ALERT: On the very next play, Kyler Murray targets DeAndre Hopkins on a fade and the All-Pro receiver comes down with it, despite good coverage from Josh Norman, to give Arizona a 17-7 lead midway through the 4th quarter.

REDZONE ALERT: DeAndre Hopkins catches a 30-yard underthrown pass from Kyler Murray that Jimmie Ward overruns, leading to an Arizona opportunity inside the redzone.

Once again, the 49ers fail to convert on 4th down, with Lance having multiple tipped passes at the line of scrimmage, giving Arizona plus field position.

TURNOVER ALERT: With the 49ers badly needing a turnover, Dontae Johnson strips Chase Edmonds on a checkdown to force a huge fumble, giving the 49ers a chance to take the lead in the 4th quarter.

After forcing a Cardinals punt, the 49ers fail to convert on 4th down once again, as Kyle Juszczyk cannot get a yard on 4th & 1 at their own 48.

3rd Quarter

QUARTER ALERT: The Cardinals face a 2nd & 10 at their own 49-yard line as the quarter ends, still leading 10-7, with a chance to add more.

After three straight punts by both teams, the 49ers finally open up the scoring in the second half with a 6-play, 59-yard touchdown drive, capped by a Deebo Samuel rushing touchdown, to put the 49ers within three points at 10-7.

2nd Quarter

QUARTER ALERT: With a missed 61-yard field goal as time expired, the Cardinals head into halftime with a 10-0 lead and will receive the ball to start the second half

Starting at their own 1-yard line, Arizona marches up the entire field and is able to convert on a field-goal on 4th & 3 at the SF 3 to put the score at 10-0.

On a promising drive for Trey Lance & Co., the Cardinals stop the 49ers on 4th & Goal at the ARI 1 to keep the score 7-0.

1st Quarter

QUARTER ALERT: On the last play before the quarter ends, Trey Lance completes his deepest pass of the game: a 26-yard dime to Deebo Samuel, giving the 49ers a 1st down at the ARI 39.

SCORE ALERT: James Conner caps on an eight-play, 68-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown rush to give the Cardinals a 7-0 lead early.

On Trey Lance's first drive as a starter, he overthrows Travis Benjamin, leading to a Budda Baker interception.

Trey Lance's first snap as a starter results in a huge play: a 14-yard quarterback rush, displaying the rookie's strong frame and running ability.


Elijah Mitchell is expected to START Sunday against the Cardinals after missing the past two games with a shoulder injury. Trey Sermon, the starter over the past two weeks, is expected to back him up.

The Cardinals have announced their six inactives for the game: CB Byron Murphy, CB Tay Gowan, QB Chris Streveler, CB Marco Wilson, LB Victor Dimujeke, and DE Michael Dogbe.

With Ambry Thomas, K'Waun Williams, and Buster Skrine inactive, the 49ers have only five cornerbacks active: CB Josh Norman, CB Deommodore Lenoir, CB Emmanuel Moseley, CB Dontae Johnson, and CB Dre Kirkpatrick. Norman is making his way back from a lung contusion, and should start opposite Emmanuel Moseley on the outside, while Dontae Johnson is expected to be the starting nickelback.

The 49ers have announced their seven inactives for the game: QB Jimmy Garoppolo, WR Jauan Jennings, CB Ambry Thomas, CB K'Waun Williams, CB Buster Skrine, DT Zach Kerr, and OG Aaron Banks.

Ahead of Sunday's game, the 49ers are elevating three players from the practice squad: WR Travis Benjamin, QB Nate Sudfeld, and TE Tanner Hudson. Benjamin's move was a corresponding one with George Kittle being placed on IR. Kittle is next eligible to return in Week 9 when the Cardinals visit Levi's Stadium.
