Is Week 15 vs. the Cardinals a trap game for the 49ers?

Could the Cardinals pose an unexpected challenge against the 49ers?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The San Francisco 49ers are set to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15, looking to improve their 10-3 record and maintain control of the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Coming into the game, the 49ers are seen as 12-point favorites over their division rivals, with the over/under set at 48 points.

The Cardinals, standing at 3-10, have struggled for much of the year, but are coming off a 24-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers prior to their bye week, and have shown some extra life with quarterback Kyler Murray at the helm, remaining competitive in three of their last four matchups.

In our latest podcast episode, we discussed whether Week 15 will be a trap game for the 49ers, and how Brock Purdy fits into the MVP race among his counterparts.
