Upcoming Travel Schedule Will Test 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are looking for their first victory.

Palmer was sacked six times Sunday during the Cardinals' 18-15 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers, and he was hit 16 times overall. One David Johnson injury later and they were sitting at 1-2 through three games.

The longest 49ers win streak stretched to five games twice.

Not pretty. But it's a win over a division rival, and navigating through a shaky NFC West might be Arizona's best shot at making the playoffs this season. But the reality is, maybe these types of losses aren't the worst thing in the world for San Francisco. They've always played really, really well against us - really, really hard against us.

The Rams will have a very tough matchup Sunday as they travel to Dallas to face the ship-righted Cowboys. "We got into a manageable third-and-goal and we didn't get it on third down".

"We ain't deaf! We heard the Booing before the game". Whichever team ends with better conversion percentage in this game, could easily find themselves as the victor. There will be plenty for head coach Bruce Arians and his staff to work on this week. "We've run, probably, too many RPOs down there and didn't execute them properly or didn't make the catch or the throw, like the fourth-and-1 in Indy". We passionately want what is best for this country and all its citizens.

Phil Dawson, meanwhile, was 4-for-4 against his former team, hitting from 29, 43, 50 and 32 yards.

The good news is that the 49ers' pass rush has been somewhat lackluster to this point, tallying just three sacks on the season. Cardinals swept all four games against San Francisco in past two years.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks also had two sacks, and defensive end Everson Griffen and defensive tackle Linval Joseph each had one. A fourth-quarter injury kept him at 94 yards, but the Lions had to like what they saw from him against a good Minnesota front.

Elvis Dumervil had two of the sacks, giving him 101 in his career.

"We've got to find a way to get pressure on the quarterback because if you don't get pressure on the quarterback with four, that's going to trickle to your coverages", coach Kyle Shanahan said. As bad as the offensive line has been, Arizona will catch a bit of a break this week, as the San Francisco defense only has accounted for three sacks on the entire season. While they did keep Ezekiel Elliott below 100 yards, he still ran for 80 and a touchdown. In two games vs. Arizona in 2016, Hyde had just 92 yards and one score on 35 carries.

The defense faltered when it needed to stiffen the most, allowing the Cardinals (2-2) to move 75 yards in seven plays to score the winning touchdown - right after Robbie Gould put the 49ers (0-4) ahead on his fifth field goal. Led by starting quarterback Brian Hoyer, the group was only able to convert on 26 percent of their third-down opportunities (5-of-19).

On a much brighter note, it appears that Arizona will finally get back $LB, Deone Bucannon, and wide receiver, John Brown.

A week after about 180 NFL players sat or knelt during the performance of the national anthem, and three teams stayed in the locker room rather than be on the sidelines for "The Star-Spangled Banner", 52 players sat or knelt and one stayed in the locker room for the pre-game tradition on Sunday.

The 49ers were at the center of the anthem protest issue a year ago, when quarterback Colin Kaepernick started it in response to police brutality and racial injustice.

The 49ers are relatively healthy, although there were some concerns about the availability of rookie linebacker Reuben Foster (ankle) and safety Eric Reid (knee). With players either injured or contemplating retirement, the identity for Arizona's offensive line has been at best, questionable.
