San Francisco 49ers

C.J. Beathard completed 15-of-27 passes for 170 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Rams. Beathard had a rough first half, turning the ball over twice including a lost fumble and failing to complete a pass to a receiver. He did find George Kittle for several big plays, however, including a 10-yard touchdown with just 10 seconds left to at least give the 49ers a chance. Unfortunately for San Francisco, he could not build on that drive in the second half, and he tossed another interception on a pass thrown slightly behind Kittle in the third quarter. Beathard has to take some blame for the showing, but he was constantly under pressure and ended up taking seven sacks. The road will not get any easier in Arizona against an underrated defense next week.

Arizona Cardinals

Mike Jurecki of the Cardinals' official website says there's "zero chance" the team trades CB Patrick Peterson. Peterson seems resigned to the fact after initially requesting a trade. He released a statement on Wednesday, saying, "I've been incredibly frustrated with how the season has gone. But my energy is 100% focused on being part of the solution & helping us turn this around. ... I have always given my all to the Cardinals organization, my teammates & fans. That is what I intend to do for the years to come." It sounds like we can squash all of those Peterson trade rumors.

NFL Betting Trends

San Francisco

The over is 5-1 in the 49ers’ last six games overall and is 4-1 in their last five road games.

Arizona

The under is 5-0 in the Cardinals’ last five games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.

Prediction

The Cardinals own one of, if not the worst offense in the league. They don’t figure to move the ball much against a San Francisco defense that isn’t great on the backend but does have some quality pieces in its front seven. Meanwhile, the 49ers moved the ball at will two weeks ago in Green Bay but struggled against the Rams last Sunday at home. The under is 19-7 in the Cardinals’ last 26 home games and is 10-2 in the 49ers’ last 12 games coming off a double-digit loss at home.
