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.

Next Up

Jones-Drew: Why the rest of the NFC is nervous about the 49ers led by Jimmy Garoppolo

No one wants to see a player go down with an injury. The San Francisco 49ers were heartbroken when their second-year quarterback, last year's No. 3 overall pick, suffered a broken ankle during the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Trey Lance will undergo surgery on Monday. The good news is that the quarterback who led the team to the NFC title game in two of the last three seasons is still on the roster, ready to see if he can create the same type of magic this season before hitting free agency in 2023. NFL analyst Maurice Jones-Drew believes Jimmy Garoppolo returning to the lineup likely has the rest of the NFC more worried. No one, including the 49ers, really knew what they had in Lance. Everyone was still trying to figure that

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Tight end George Kittle missed his fifth consecutive practice since suffering a groin strain on September 5, decreasing his chances of playing on Sunday. Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill also continues to be sidelined as he attempts to return from a hamstring injury. On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too optimistic about Brunskill's chances of playing against the Seahawks. "We were thinking he'd be ready for Week 1, and he had that setback," Shanahan said. "So he'll be later in



49ers-Seahawks: Kyle Shanahan says George Kittle still has a chance to play, isn't optimistic about Daniel Brunskill

Neither tight end George Kittle nor offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill practiced on Thursday. That's not a good sign regarding their potential availability for Sunday's pivotal Week 2 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. Kittle has not practiced since suffering a groin strain on September 5. Brunskill suffered a hamstring injury during the 49ers' exhibition opener and hasn't practiced since. Neither suited up this past weekend against the Chicago Bears. "Neither of them were able to [practice] today," Shanahan said Thursday on KNBR. "I'm holding out more hope for George. We haven't ruled Brunskill out yet, I don't believe, but I'd be shocked if Brunskill made it. George still has a chance." The 49ers are coming off a
