In their first drive of the second half, the 49ers drove down the field from their own 30 to get to Arizona’s 18. From there, it was supposed to be a 47-yard chippy for Steve Andrus to extend the lead.
The Cardinals had other ideas and blocked the kick. Unfortunately for them, their lack of a coherent offense plagued them into a 3-and-out and the Niners got the ball back at their own 36. From there it was four minute jaunt back down the field to Arizona’s 20-yard line.
Andrus came out to kick over from almost the same spot and this time his kick went true. 24-6 Niners with a little over two minutes left in the third quarter.
