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.

Jimmy Garoppolo's "fun night": Fast start, complementary football led to 49ers' rout of Rams

No one was really expecting this. Yes, the San Francisco 49ers entered the game having won four straight against the Los Angeles Rams, but they were 3-5 this season and had lost five of their last six games. The Rams had just added Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller. It didn't look like the 49ers had a chance against Sean McVay's Super Bowl-hopeful squad that upgraded its starting quarterback this offseason, swapping Jared Goff (plus some draft capital) for Matthew Stafford. As most expected, the game was a good old-fashioned beatdown. Except, Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers delivered the blows to the tune of a 31-10 victory. It was the Niners' first home victory in 393



Back in the hunt: Where the 49ers stand in the NFC playoff picture after rout of Rams

By David Bonilla

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. The San Francisco 49ers still have eight games remaining on their 2021 schedule. However, their season isn't as dead as it appeared a week ago. After a decisive 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, a division rival with Super Bowl aspirations, their playoff hopes are alive. Next up are the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team Kyle Shanahan's Niners should be able to beat. Of course, that was the thinking in Week 9 against an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. That didn't go as hoped. However, if the 49ers can ride the momentum of Monday night's impressive and somewhat shocking win throughout the rest of the season, they could be a dangerous team down the

Frank Gore still watches San Francisco 49ers games. Last night, he was watching when his former team shockingly dismantled the revamped Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium. This morning, Gore joined KNBR and shared his thoughts on some of the 49ers' star players, including the rookie running back. "They played physical," Gore said on the Murph & Mac show. "I liked the way they played the game last night. I like that young kid, [Elijah Mitchell]. ... He's a good back. He's got a bright future. Just tell him to keep working. Just keep his head down, keep working." San Francisco rushed the football 44 times for 156 yards. Mitchell had 27 carries for 91 yards. The rookie leads the team with 560 rushing yards this season.
