Around the NFC West: Cardinals beat Seahawks in division showdown

Nov 15, 2015 at 10:12 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers took a week off from their goal of escaping the basement of the NFC West standings. How did the rest of the division do on Sunday?

Chicago Bears 37, St. Louis Rams 13

Bears TE Zach Miller showed off his speed on an 87-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter. The game was tied after a quarter of play but broke open for the Bears after that. They would score four consecutive times to take a 24-10 halftime lead on their way to a 37-13 rout of the St. Louis Rams.

Rams QB Nick Foles was just 17 of 36 for 200 yards and an interception. Rookie Todd Gurley was held to just 45 yards on 12 carries. Although, he did run into the end zone for the game's first score and contributed 44 yards on three receptions.

Arizona Cardinals 39, Seattle Seahawks 32

There was a scary moment in the second quarter when ex-49ers offensive lineman Mike Iupati, now with the Arizona Cardinals, was taken off the field in an ambulance after a collision with Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor. Arizona later announced that his CT scan and MRI at the hospital both came back normal.

The Cardinals nearly let a 19-point lead escape them. They led the entire game until the Seahawks took a 29-25 lead in the fourth quarter. However, two consecutive Cardinals touchdowns would seal the victory.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer passed for 362 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the win. It is their seventh win of the season.

49ers safety Tony Jefferson excited for 'ample opportunities' facing NFC West opponents

New San Francisco 49ers safety Tony Jefferson joined NFL Total Access on Tuesday and discussed his return to the football field. He hasn't played since Week 5 of the 2019 season when he suffered a torn ACL, and the Baltimore Ravens released him on February 14, 2020. Jefferson spent his first four NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He officially returned to the NFC West on June 7 when San Francisco signed him to a one-year deal. Jefferson is now preparing to face several talented quarterbacks in Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, and Kyler Murray. The veteran safety sounds more excited than concerned, though. "As a secondary player, you look at the NFC West, you see the quarterbacks, and the new addition of Matthew Stafford," Jefferson said. "I love



USA Today predicts 49ers to win NFC West with this record

Nate Davis of USA TODAY released his annual NFL predictions this week, and San Francisco 49ers fans might wonder how the national reporter feels the league's toughest division, the NFC West, will pan out. San Francisco is coming off a disappointing injury-plagued six-win campaign. It was the third losing season in head coach Kyle Shanahan's four years with the team, and the 49ers hope 2020, not their 2019 campaign that ended with a Super Bowl appearance, is the aberration. Most expect the 49ers to be much improved in 2021, assuming the team can stay relatively healthy. San Francisco



Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

Trent Williams stepped up to the podium yesterday for his scheduled media session, which was the first time since March that he was available to the media. During the press conference, Williams expressed confidence in the San Francisco 49ers team around him, saying he believes that they are the "team to beat" this season. "I feel comfortable in the team we have," Williams said. "I feel like when [we got] all the guys on the roster on the field, I feel like we the team to beat. So, it's the first time in my career I walked into a situation with that type of confidence." Prior to last season, Williams had played nine years with Washington, never winning a playoff game. He missed the playoffs altogether last year as part of the injury-riddled 49ers that
