Cardinals defense has field day with Colin Kaepernick, 49ers

However, with Kaepernick repeatedly throwing the ball away – two in the first six minutes which led to Cardinals touchdowns – there were few opportunities at running back.


“It’s a 16-week season and we don’t need to get on a rollercoaster”, Tomsula said, reports Yahoo Sports.

It didn’t get any better after that for the 49ers either. After his fourth interception of the day, Kaepernick looked like he might never recover emotionally. Before the 49ers were even out of the gate, they were 14 points down, and Kaepernick finished his day with nine completions in 19 attempts for just 67 yards.

“Very hard for me to deal with. Very hard to see myself go out and play like that and hurt this team the way I did”.

“But it also begs the question why DeAndrew White, and not Hayne, was returning kicks”.

The only bright spot for Kaepernick was set up by Hayne.

Kaepernick’s first snap after halftime resulted in interception No. 4, and four plays later, Larry Fitzgerald made the first of his two touchdown catches.

-1. They’re taking care of business.

The Cardinals knew how to stop 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. In the first two weeks of the season, they’ve beaten up the Saints and Bears, who both look directionless on offense.

The San Francisco 49ers could not develop offensive rhythm in a 47-7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. However, they finally held on to a second half lead and clinched a 32-21 win, with the highlight being a 30 yard Odell Beckham Jr touchdown catch. “He can do that week in and week out”, quarterback Carson Palmer said.

“They were probably exhausted of me, honestly” Bowman said of the penalty.

-3. Their defense is a scoring threat. Colin Kaepernick completed 33 of 46 passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns, and added 51 yards on the ground to lead the Niners.

Week 3 is already crunch time for a number of National Football League teams.

Boldin started his career in Arizona (2003-09), and he’ll want to challenge stars Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu. Last week against the Bears, Tony Jefferson returned a Jay Cutler interception for a score.

A San Francisco 49ers fan cheers for her team prior to the start of a game against the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium on September 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. “We’ve been watching them play in the playoffs for a number of years”, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said of the 49ers.

On Sunday, he tweaked the same knee while making a tackle against Cardinals running back Chris Johnson. It is the only time in 12 red zone appearances this season that Arizona has not scored a touchdown.

After his dominating performance in week one, Carlos Hyde struggled to get going for the second consecutive week in a row. “We should be able to throw and you just can’t commit turnovers”. The pick for Bethel, a two-time Pro Bowl special teams player, came on his first play from scrimmage this season.

Kaepernick didn’t have a pass intercepted in his previous five games, and he went 142 passes since his last interception, by Charles Woodson in a December 7 loss at the Raiders. “It was really close”, coach Bruce Arians said.


“Like I keep saying every week, I’m just living and learning”.
