Monday Night NFC West Clash – 49ers vs Cardinals Betting Stats
2012-10-29

San Francisco beat Seattle last week 13-6 and had three extra days to prepare for this matchup. “They play outstanding defense… ,” coach Jim Harbaugh said about the Cards. “A team that we know. They know us. Have a lot of respect for the Cardinals”.

The Cardinals have lost three straight games, and they know playing against San Francisco is key to avoid a deeper debacle.

“All of the teams in the NFC West have a defense that’s strong, that’s very physical,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt told the 49ers’ official website. “That’s a great quality for our division to show to the rest of the league. I know that it will be a physical game on Monday night. It always is when we play the 49ers.”

“It seems to me they run the ball on everybody,” said Whisenhunt, whose team has surrendered 331 rushing yards on 5.5 per carry during its last two games.

“It doesn’t matter who it is, they’ve done a nice job. They’ve got a good scheme, they’re well-coached. I’ve watched Frank Gore for a number of years and have great respect for him as a player”.

Arizona is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games when playing San Francisco, and 1-5 ATS when the Cards are the home team.

Detroit seemed on their way to victory leading 20-13 late in the fourth quarter but New York scored a defense touchdown to tie the game, and kicked a game winning field goal on their second possession of overtime. The Lions final five chances with the ball ended with four punts and a defensive score. New York was limited to just 41 yards on the ground on 21 carries while the Lions scampered for 148 yards. The teams combined for five turnovers.
