Arizona comes into the contest looking to re-establish some momentum that it has lost since starting the season 4-0. In the last three weeks, the Cardinals have had near misses every time, losing to the St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings.
With a win, Arizona would vault itself into first place in the division and hit the halfway point with a good feeling. The Cardinals also know the schedule is only going to get harder, with games at Green Bay and Atlanta coming up.
The 49ers are simply seeking to keep the ball rolling. Other than its defeat at the hands of the New York Giants, San Francisco has been dominant lately, winning three-of-four and looking like a team to be reckoned with.
Jim Harbaugh's team is tops in the league in rushing yardage (176.6 per game) and opponents passing yardage (173.4). However, it has proven to be one-dimensional offensively, coming in 28th in terms of passing yards.
