The defenses are dominating Thursday night’s 49ers-Cardinals game.

49ers wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is having his way, too.

After a forgettable and predictable display of punts, Kerley got open along the sideline for a 9-yard touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert, giving the 49ers a 7-0 lead with 4:12 left in the first quarter.

Kerley has five catches for 75 yards about 25 minutes in. Gabbert has seven completions.

After the game’s first seven possessions ended in punts, Gabbert and the 49ers drove 87 yards in 10 plays for the score. The teams have combined for 14 incomplete passes and three sacks, but the 49ers showed the first real signs of offensive life.

    I’ ve been watching football since the late 70’s. This may be the worst game I’ve ever seen.

    49er fans must be sitting in Kezar Stadium waiting for the game to start. Or is it Candlestick? No wait, it’s Santa Clara. Oh well, no traffic jams tonight.

    I don;t know about that but the 49er uniforms are even worse than the Steeler bee uniforms and that is the worst look ever.
