Golden Nuggets: Bring on the Cardinals!

Sunday, September 27th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone. Today, the San Francisco 49ers play the Arizona Cardinals in a very important NFC West matchup. It's not a must-win by any stretch of the imagination, as there's a lot of season left, but sitting tied with them at 2-1 is a whole lot better than 1-2 while the Cardinals remain unbeaten. I don't know if they'll be THE team to beat when it's all said and done, as the Seattle Seahawks are still ... the Seattle Seahawks, after all.

They've lost a couple of tough games, but I expect them to rebound. That's why every win counts for the 49ers, whether it's against the NFC West or not. It just so happens that the Cardinals are looking really, really good at the moment and the 49ers really need to rebound from that loss against the Steelers. I think they can do it, but I do suspect it's going to be a very close -- and very long -- game.

Onto your links for the day, everyone.
