Somers' fast take

If Cardinals followers are going to observe their workforce the remainder of the yr, they could see what they'll do about buying defibrillators and morphine pumps.
Not less than that’s what was wanted on Sunday when the Cardinals received their first recreation of the season in painful, heart-stopping type.
Painful as a result of the offense is so dangerous it hurts the eyes. It’s laughable to name what they're utilizing a scheme. The Cardinals can’t run the ball. The passing recreation is inconsistent. They'll’t convert on third down.
The protection was liable for the 28-18 victory over the 49ers. It got here up with 5 takeaways, together with a fumble return for a landing.
The brilliant facet? The one factor worse than taking part in poorly towards a nasty workforce is dropping to them, and at the very least the Cardinals didn’t do this.
The 49ers are beat up and dangerous. For many of the afternoon, the Cardinals seemed worse, at the very least on offense. That group did nothing on Sunday to supply a lot hope for the longer term.

Shock inactives

The Cardinals shall be with out two large components of their defensive position throughout at present’s recreation towards the 49ers as deal with Robert Nkemdiche (foot) and finish Markus Golden (knee) are among the many workforce’s inactives at Levi’s Stadium.
Each gamers had been restricted in apply many of the week, however coach Steve Wilks had stated he appreciated their probabilities of taking part in.
With Nkemdiche out, Olsen Pierre slides right into a beginning spot subsequent to veteran Corey Peters. That leaves Rodney Gunter as the one different defensive deal with on the energetic roster.

Mac's prediction 

This clearly isn’t one of many league’s higher video games on the Week 5 schedule and what we see on the sector in all probability isn’t going to win any magnificence pageants, both. It figures to be an unpleasant, ground-and-pound recreation the place each groups look to ascertain the run and throw solely when needed. If that’s the way in which it goes, then anticipate a low-scoring recreation with one or two massive performs deciding the result. I’m siding with the Cardinals for the primary time since Week 1, partially as a result of I believe Rosen is the man who will make these one or two performs.  
Prediction: Cardinals 20, 49ers 17 ||
