27. Arizona Cardinals (26)
For the second time in less than a month, the Arizona Cardinals found a way to make things competitive with the San Francisco 49ers, and while it was certainly frustrating to finish on the losing end again, at least this can be used as a learning experience.
Despite numerous opportunities for the Cardinals to pull away with the win over their division rivals, the 49ers just proved to be the much better team once again after battling it out until the end.
With that being said, this game was another perfect example that shows Arizona is in much better shape than originally expected since this seemed like a year that would see plenty of rebuilding.
This has obviously been the case for the most part, but Kyler Murray continues to show a ton of potential each week, and should be thrilled over finishing with three touchdowns (one rushing) against a tough defense in the 49ers.
If Murray’s rookie campaign is any indication of what the future has in store, the Cardinals are going to be in great shape with their quarterback.
And if Arizona continues to build a solid offense around their young quarterback, it’s only going to help the Cardinals become a serious threat in the NFC sooner rather than later.
