49ers vs Cardinals Live stream. 5 49ers to watch Week 4 vs. Cardinals, 49ers vs. Cardinals: Preview, score prediction for Week 4
The 49ers (0-3) are looking for their first win under coach Kyle Shanahan Sunday in Arizona. It’s the first of three straight road games and the third consecutive tilt against an NFC West opponent. San Francisco in its last two games lost to the Seahawks and Rams by five points combined. They last played on Thursday night to start Week 3, giving them 10 days between games. The Cardinals (1-2) are preparing on a short week after their 28-17 loss on Monday night to the Cowboys.
For the Cardinals their loss raised substantial questions about their offensive line as Carson Palmer was sacked six times, while the running game remains virtually non-existent minus the MVP caliber talent of David Johnson. Through three weeks, it isn’t quite clear what the 49ers are good at. Their defense was stout for the first two games while there was nothing to shout about on offense bar the play of Carlos Hyde.
Despite talk of a drop-off in the play of the aging Carson Palmer, the Cardinals remain an extremely dangerous downfield passing team. When he was given time to throw against the Cowboys, Palmer moved around the pocket well and appeared the same confident aggressive quarterback he has always been.
