49ers Vs. Cardinals: Brian Westbrook Scores First Touchdown With San Francisco

Frank Gore has been sidelined for most of the game with a sore hip and is unlikely to return, but that has hardly slowed the San Francisco ground attack, which is slicing through the Cardinals defense with the greatest of ease.

Midway through the second quarter, the 49ers already have 105 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. It should come as no surprise to Arizona that the 49ers would want to attack with their power rushing game even with Gore out of the game.

Though Anthony Dixon had the first San Francisco rushing TD, it has been former Eagles back Brian Westbrook who is getting the bulk of the touches. So far Westbrook has nine carries for 43 yards, including the eight-yard scamper in the end zone to give the Niners a 21-3 lead in the second quarter.
