Niners still search first win
The San Francisco 49ers welcome in the Arizona Cardinals this weekend in the first of three consecutive home games at Levi's Stadium.
The Niners fell by three points in overtime to the Cardinals when the two teams played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale at the start of October.
Brian Hoyer completed 24-of-49 for 234 yards and no touchdowns in the 18-15 loss while being picked off once in the first quarter.
Sunday Hoyer will not even be on the San Francisco roster, cut after the 49ers traded for Jimmy Garoppolo from the New England Patriots.
Rookie C.J. Beathard will continue under center for San Francisco while Garoppolo will be the back up.
With the New York Giants up next it will be interesting to see if the 49ers promote their new quarterback to the starting line up or wait until the Seattle Seahawks game which follows a bye in Week 11.
Seattle, 1.90 to win the NFC West, has won four in a row and is tied for the division lead with the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West.
Russell Wilson completed an 18-yard pass to Jimmy Graham in the final minute of regulation last week as the Seahawks ran out 41-38 winners over the Houston Texans at the CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
This week the Seahawks entertain the Washington Redskins while the Rams are back east as they take on the Giants at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
New Rams head coach Sean McVay appears to have LA pointing in the right direction and the issues with the Rams never seemed to be about their talent level.
