52nd regular-season matchup. The Cardinals trail in the all-time series 29-22 but have won each of the last four meetings.
That came from Palmer, who for the game completed 33-of-51 passes for 357 yards as the running game once again struggled (51 yards, 2.3-yards per carry). Coincidentally, Indy also lost to Arizona in overtime, albeit at home.
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Hyde (hip) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Coach Bruce Arians said he may have abandoned the rushing attack too early during Monday night's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. It remains fairly wide open, and this is a must-win for the Cardinals.
The San Francisco 49ers are 0-4 to start the 2017 season, but if there's one positive to take away, it's the fact that they're getting better. One strong player who may be joining the team on Sunday is Running back Carlos Hyde.
"And when you do have opportunities, you don't need to make stuff up". He finished with four catches for 32 yards and now has 158 catches for 2,099 yards and 17 touchdowns; that's more touchdowns than any active player has against a single opponent. I didn't notice right tackle Jared Veldheer in a bad way as I had the previous two games.
The ten-day gap week 3 of play has helped few of the San Francisco players to recover from injuries suffered against the Rams. The 49ers travel to Glendale to face the Arizona Cardinals.
Even with a stellar pass rush, however, the achilles heel of the 49ers defense continued to be that of a young and hobbled secondary, which Palmer took advantage of whenever he wasn't being brought down in the pocket.
This would have been an "A" grade if the defense had been able to hold the Cardinals down in overtime.
"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you'd say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out!" He told reporters that he plans on "hunting" the rest of the season.
As if giving up over 100 yards to a single receiver wasn't bad enough, Robinson also dropped a pair of interceptions - one early in the first quarter that was subsequently picked off by 49ers linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong and another in the final moments of overtime that fell incomplete after almost falling to Brown.
Hoyer was unable to lead the 49ers into the end zone, though he did have a touchdown pass to Breida called back for offensive pass interference, and that failure proved pivotal in sealing San Francisco's fate as Larry Fitzgerald caught the game-winning touchdown in overtime after the visitors missed a chance to cap a long drive with a decisive six-pointer of their own.
Unable to close out a game for the third straight week, the 49ers remained winless after allowing Palmer to pick his way down the field and find Larry Fitzgerald on an 19-yard touchdown that gave the Cardinals an ugly, 18-15 victory on Sunday. He was sacked once on the drive, the sixth one he absorbed in the game, but the passing game actually looked like the one that had been envisioned in training camp.
The 49ers would have 13 penalties for 113 yards, including the penalty that set up the game winning touchdown for Arizona. As the first half wore down, so did the Arizona offensive line giving due to consistent pressure by San Francisco's front seven.
