The Arizona Cardinals have been in this position before, as in Week 3, they faced and defeated the heavily favored Dallas Cowboys. This week, they are once again facing one of the league’s best teams on their home turf in the San Francisco 49ers, but this isn’t the first time the two teams met. 

In Week 4, following that epic win vs. Dallas, the Cardinals could not capitalize on the momentum, falling 35-16 in a game that saw the 49ers pulling away in the fourth quarter. Even if the Cardinals 2023 season is a wash at this point, playing another elite team like the Niners is an opportunity to cap off another upset. Here is everything you need to know if you are planning on watching the game.

What to Watch

If the 49ers win this game, they will improve to 11-3 and keep their tiebreaker lead over the Dallas Cowboys thanks to winning the head-to-head earlier in the season. The Cardinals aren’t making the playoffs barring something dramatic, but they can show improvement in a contest that serves as a golden opportunity for quarterback Kyler Murray vs. elite competition.
