Cardinals rout 49ers 47-7: Game recaps from Sep. 27

Sep 27, 2015 at 4:16 PM--


The first two drives by the San Francisco 49ers ended with Colin Kaepernick interceptions returned for touchdowns, giving the Arizona Cardinals an early 14-point lead. The first by CB Justin Bethel and the second by FS Tyrann Mathieu.

The 49ers would finally score on a Kaepernick run for 12 yards just before the first half's two-minute warning, but by this point, the Cardinals had already scored two more times and led 28-7 on their way to a 47-7 victory.

Kaepernick would end the day with four interceptions, the first four-interception game of his career. He is the first 49ers quarterback to throw four picks in a game since Trent Dilfer did so in a road game against the Carolina Panthers in 2007. Mathieu would end the day with two while CB Jerraud Powers would get one of his own.


TE Vernon Davis left the game with a knee injury. He did not go into the locker room and remained on the sideline for the remainder of the game.

Kaepernick ended the game 9 of 19 for 67 yards and 4 interceptions while Cardinals QB Carson Palmer ended 20 of 32 for 311 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.

There will be a lot of discussion this week on which direction the struggling 49ers will have to take as they return home and prepare to face the Green Bay Packers at Levi's Stadium on Sunday, October 4. Kickoff is at 1:25 PM PT.

The Cardinals improve to 3-0 on the season while the 49ers drop to 1-2.

K'Waun Williams had choices in free agency. The New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs were interested. Ultimately, the cornerback opted to stay with the familiar, which meant re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers. "All the (offered) deals were pretty similar, at the time," Williams told reporters on Tuesday. "I just chose the Niners. I couldn't deny playing with some of my teammates, you know what I mean? In our secondary, we've got Jimmie (Ward), Jaquiski (Tartt), we've got Jason (Verrett), all those guys. Just being able to play one more year with those guys was just too intriguing to me." Williams visited with the Chiefs before re-signing with San Francisco. Understandably, he didn't want to discuss the Lombardi Trophy from Super Bowl LIV that was

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields had an impressive throwing session during Tuesday's pro day in Columbus. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch weren't in attendance, but assistant general manager Adam Peters and a small contingent of San Francisco 49ers staff were. Shanahan and Lynch hope to catch up with Fields later. The duo was in Tuscaloosa to watch Mac Jones at Alabama's pro day. "We talked to (agent) Dave Mulugheta the other day, and he said that they'd be able to set up another [workout for Fields]," Shanahan told reporters on Monday. "That's why we chose Alabama. I'm excited to see him eventually in person. I've also got a lot



PFF identifies Clemson RB Travis Etienne as a forward-thinking draft fit for 49ers

Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus went through all 32 NFL teams and tried to look one or two years in the future to project areas of need for each. Maybe a certain position group is considered among the team's strengths now, but will that be the case down the road? He then tried to find a good draft prospect—at a good value—to fill that potential need. "The respective prospect pairings for those teams all stand out as good value for where they would be selected," wrote Linsey, "and their selection would serve as a preventative measure to maintain strength at that position for years to come." For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the running

Everyone seems to have an opinion on who the San Francisco 49ers will select with the No. 3 overall pick. Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are widely expected to go at the No. 1 and 2 spots, leaving head coach Kyle Shanahan with his pick of Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones. The first two are considered the better prospects. Of course, there is a lot of chatter surrounding Jones. At least, there was before what some consider to be a less-than-stellar second pro day. inside the mind of Kyle Shanahan pic.twitter.com/Vq10jeqIcx— Josh Norris (@JoshNorris)
