The Cardinals kept their playoff aspirations alive — while also Burying an NFC West foe — with a win against the Rams last week. This week, they’ll have to face another division rival and one of the NFC’s best teams.
Arizona will “host” the 49ers in Mexico City on “Monday Night Football,” with plenty riding for both teams. The Cardinals (4-6) need as many wins as possible to get back into the playoff race. The 49ers (5-4), fresh off a “Sunday Night Football” win against the Chargers, would tie the idle Seahawks for the division lead with a win.

Both teams came into the year with lofty expectations for their offenses, but while the 49ers’ stars have kept San Francisco near the top in yards per play (sixth at 5.9), the Cardinals have struggled, ranking 29th at 4.9. That is largely due to their troubles in the passing game; Arizona was averaging 5.2 net yards per attempt, which ranked 31st in the league Entering Week 11.
And the Matchup against the 49ers could be a bit of a mismatch for the Cardinals, who may not have Murray (hamstring) under center. San Francisco’s defense is seventh in lowest net yards per attempt at 5.6. According to Football Outsiders, Arizona ranks 29th in passing offense DVOA while San Francisco ranks 10th in passing defense DVOA.
