Week 11 of NFL The season closed with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Arizona Cardinals in a major NFC West tilt on Monday Night Football.
The dominance fell at Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca in the fifth and final game of the 2022 International Series.
Kyler Murray was inactive, so Colt McCoy made his second start for the Cardinals.
San Francisco 49ers 38, Arizona Cardinals 10
Hear the roar
The crowd was loud early on, cheering for the “defense” and roaring as McCoy tried to hit DeAndre Hopkins in the end zone but couldn’t connect. The Cardinals settled for a 46-yard field goal and the 3-0 lead.
Mexico City fans know good football, and they cheered loudly when the 49ers downed that punt at the 4-yard line.
Aiyuk of the tiger
The 49ers quickly marched down the field on their third play, capped by a touchdown pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to Brandon Aiyuk.
A McCoy pass bounced off the hands of Cards RB James Conner and 49ers DB Jimmie Ward, putting the Niners in Arizona territory.
It made you look
Jimmy G made the Cardinals defense think they were going to slip away for a first down when he and George Kittle scrambled for a 39-yard TD. That gave San Francisco a 14-3 lead.
Third and Dortch
After two third-down conversions by Greg Dortch, including a 47-yarder, Conner hit it to cut the Cards’ deficit to four.
An initially promising 49ers drive stalled just outside the red zone, setting up a 39-yard field goal by Robbie Gould. San Francisco led 17-10 at halftime.
Deebo Samuel This is the subtitle. 24-10 is the score.
Twice as beautiful
Jimmy G and Aiyuk linked up twice on Monday. Both have resulted in touchdowns.
YACK YACK YACK!
The explosion is in full effect as a short Garoppolo pass turned into another Kittle TD. The score of 38-10 proved to be the final score.
