Brock Purdy started warming up on the sideline after San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo took a hit to his surgically repaired left knee and was slow to get up. Garoppolo appeared to be in pain. The quarterback was asked if he ever thought he might need to exit the game. "Nah, I was staying in the game," Garoppolo told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. "I knew what type of game it was. That's what it was all day. That wasn't the only hit that was questionable like that. Throughout the whole game, it was like that, but that's football. "It was a gritty game. I'm proud of the guys today, how they fought through the adversity that was thrown at us. There was all kinds of adversity, and we just kept going. I think

As good as the San Francisco 49ers played against the Arizona Cardinals Monday night, there's still room for them to get better, according to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard to find much fault with how the 49ers played in their 38-10 shellacking of the Cardinals at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. After fighting off a somewhat slow start, the 49ers rolled over the Cardinals on offense while the defense held them scoreless in the second half, marking the third consecutive week they've reached that feat against an opponent. It was a performance many had been waiting for from the 49ers after an inconsistent start to the season, and Garoppolo had one of his best outings of the year along the way, throwing for 228 yards and four touchdowns on 20-of-29 passing. But even though

The San Francisco 49ers improved to 6-4 after defeating the Arizona Cardinals 38-10 on Monday Night Football in Mexico City. What will the 49ers have to do to continue to stay "Red Hot"? Let's discuss three accomplishments and three motivational factors the 49ers could use to stay "Red Hot." First, the 49ers currently sit in first place in the NFC West and are 4-0 in the division. Their chances of securing a playoff spot increased significantly. The 49ers must use this first motivational factor to remain "Red Hot." Looking ahead, the 49ers have two more divisional games left, the most important of which is the Thursday Night Football matchup against the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field in Week 15. The 49ers know they control their destiny. "Win the division,



Charvarius Ward on DeAndre Hopkins after 49ers-Cardinals: "I don't respect his game. That's steroid boy"

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward joined KNBR's Greg Papa and Tim Ryan after Monday night's 38-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The two teams will meet again in Week 18, and the 49ers corner might have just given the Cardinals' top wideout some bulletin board material. Ward was unimpressed with DeAndre Hopkins and felt the Cardinals wide receiver was playing dirty in the Mexico City matchup. Hopkins finished the game with nine catches for 91 yards. However, he had just two catches for 14 yards in the second half as the 49ers defense continued its post-halftime dominant play. "D Hop, he think he a tough guy," Ward said, per Jake
