Fitzgerald’s second TD catch extends Cardinals lead

Larry Fitzgerald’s second touchdown catch of the game in the third quarter put the Cardinals up, 21-7, on the 49ers, midway through the third quarter.

The 49ers kept it interesting with an immediate answer, though, driving for a score on a Carlos Hyde touchdown run to pull within 21-14.

The defenses dominated early and the 49ers scored first, but a flurry of 49ers miscues — fumbles, penalties and blown coverages — allowed the Cardinals to take control. Fitzgerald had a 21-yard touchdown catch late in the first half. His second touchdown catch from Drew Stanton covered 29 yards.

The game started with seven punts before the offenses got rolling. Now, the Cardinals are really rolling. David Johnson also had a third quarter touchdown run to give the Cardinals their first lead.

    Thursday night football usually sucks but tonight I welcome the diversion from my thoughts and prayers for family and friends in the southeast.

    This is disgraceful, Jed York should sell the team out of shame but he doesn’t possess the integrity to recognize the emotion.

    Glad to see you reporting on this. You know, since nobody is watching it at home, or attending it in person.

    The death spiral of the NFL continues…
