The San Francisco 49ers came out sluggish to start their home game against the Arizona Cardinals and are now getting back into things with a 17-16 lead. That’s two touchdowns and both are from tight end Ross Dwelley.
I said two touchdowns. It should be three, but an absolute garbage holding call got slapped on Weston Richburg that brought touchdown No. 3 back and forced the 49ers to kick a field goal to end the half.
My guess is we misheard and the 49ers were flagged for a man being so wide open it was unfair and they were penalized 10 yards
I got both the plays below. There is still a lot of football left and the 49ers were knocking on the door with a genius drive until Jimmy Garoppolo threw a pick. It looked like a dumb decision, but the ball was tipped when I saw the replay. It doesn’t dismiss Garoppolo, but it’s not near as bad as you originally thought.
