For a while there, it looked like a typical San Francisco 49ers kind of victory: no touchdowns but lots of field goals, great punting, good defense, good field position, and no turnovers.
However, the Arizona Cardinals had some other ideas, as they came from behind and won a thrilling game, 21-19.
Suddenly it’s pretty exciting to be an Arizona Cardinals fan again.
Here are 10 observations about the game:
1) Larry Fitzgerald had a monster performance, with a touchdown catch and a beautiful 53-yard reception where quarterback John Skelton found him in stride with a picture-perfect pass. And lest you think that he only had an impact on receptions … he also threw a punishing block that allowed Early Doucet to score the Cardinals first touchdown. For the sixth year in a row, he has surpassed 1,000 total receiving yards in a season. He is earning every penny of his new contract.
