49ers vs. Cardials 2014: The train wreck is coming to an end

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17, wrapping up an ugly 2014 season. The 49ers are a touchdown favorite, and look to just finish this season and hopefully wrap up the Jim Harbaugh drama in short order. We've got all the nuts and bolts for the game, as well as an open thread for discussion.

The San Francisco 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals in their regular season finale, and this train wreck of a season is just about near finished. It has been an absolute disaster of a season, as the 49ers went from one of the preseason Super Bowl favorites, to a team playing out the string and never really looking all that good on offense even before playoff elimination.

This year has seen the rumors run rampant about the future of Jim Harbaugh, and at this point I just want the season to end so we can wrap up this drama and move forward. I don't know what the future will bring, but ideally it won't be nearly as exhausting as the last few months.

The game kicks off at Levi's Stadium at 1:25 p.m. PT on FOX, and will feature regional coverage in Northern California and Arizona. The 49ers are a touchdown favorite, I assume because the Cardinals QB situation is a mess. Ryan Lindley is getting the start only a few days after head coach Bruce Arians had said Logan Thomas would start. Add in Drew Stanton dealing with an infection that might keep him out of the playoffs, and there is a lot going on with the Cardinals.

49ers inactives: QB Josh Johnson, WR Stevie Johnson, RB Carlos Hyde, S Eric Reid, CB Perrish Cox, CB Tramaine Brock, LB Ahmad Brooks

Cardinals inactives: QB Drew Stanton, WR Brittan Golden, S Chris Clemons, LB Larry Foote, G Jonathan Cooper, G Anthony Steen, DE Kareem Martin
