The 49ers improved to 4-2 on the season after defeating the Arizona Cardinals 32-20. It was another high blood pressure game, but the defense along with Frank Gore and Vernon Davis got the 49ers the much needed win.
The defense put the offense in position to score early by intercepting Carson Palmer twice, but they failed to punch it in for seven and instead settled for two field goals. An early interception by Kaepernick in the endzone kept the game close.
Not until the 49ers got a sack/safety from rookie Corey Lemonier did the offense start to wake up. Kaepernick and Vernon Davis connected for 7 catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. In the second half it was all Frank Gore. Gore rushed for 101 yards and roughly 80 of that was in the second half.
With Davis and Gore playing their asses off the game wasn’t put away until Patrick Willis forced a fumble on Larry Fitzgerald when the Cards were close to taking the lead. That play an 18 play drive sealed the victor...
