SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Any encouragement the San Francisco 49ers might have gained from last week’s win at Chicago was wiped out in a hurry against a short-handed Arizona team.
The Niners are winless in four home games after their 31-17 defeat to the Cardinals. A season that began with high expectations for San Francisco is spiraling out of control. The Niners fell to 3-5 and trail the Cardinals by 4 1/2 games in the NFC West.
Arizona didn't have quarterback Kyler Murray or receivers DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, but still had little trouble against San Francisco.
