Monday Night Football Recap Week 14

The Monday night game went to the West Bay, and the NFC West Title was on the line between the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers. The Cards could win the division with a victory, and the 49ers needed a win to stay alive. Who came through? To the recap…

Arizona 9, San Francisco 24- Alex Smith threw for two touchdown passes, and Frank Gore ran for 167 yards on 25 carries with a touchdown, and the San Francisco 49ers took a step on keeping their slim playoff hopes alive with a huge win over Arizona. The 49ers defense came alive by forcing seven turnovers (five fumbles) and Kurt Warner was limited to 178 yards passing with two interceptions. Beanie Wells led the way for Arizona with 79 yards rushing, and scored the team’s only touchdown. Michael Crabtree had a 35 yard touchdown reception, and Vernon Davis also caught a touchdown pass for San Francisco, The 49ers kept their slim playoff hopes alive and trail the Dallas Cowboys by two games for the final NFC Wild Card spot, but the Cardinals are in more trouble if they lose. The loss on Monday night means Arizona lost both games to San Francisco, and if the teams end up tied at 9-7 or 8-8 even, the 49ers go to the playoffs instead of Arizona, so now it boils down to Arizona going 2-1 down the stretch to make the playoffs. The Cardinals have bounced back from bad games before, so they are capable, but are they going to show that they are the NFC Champions, or the ghosts of the past come back to haunt them. Time will tell. Cardinals (8-5), 49ers (6-7)
