Former NFL head of officiating Mike Pereira said Cardinals coach Bruce Arians had good reason to be upset about the Ellington call, and Cardinals fans in attendance were certain Brown's catch would be ruled a touchdown after review. After splitting their first two games on the road, Arizona split their next two games at home to enter this week with a.500 record. Brian Hoyer threw for 332 yards and two TDs in his most effective game since joining San Francisco this offseason, teaming with Pierre Garcon for 142 of those yards.
"Everyone", right tackle Jared Veldheer said, "was fighting their butts off".
ABOUT THE CARDINALS (1-2): Arizona sorely misses running back David Johnson, who dislocated his wrist in the season opener and is out indefinitely, as it ranks 29th in the league with an average of 59 rushing yards.
"You have to", Arians said.
"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners", said President Trump, "when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he's fired".
San Francisco's offense had a breakout game last week against the Los Angeles Rams, racking up 39 points after failing to score a touchdown in the opening two games.
Kicker Phil Dawson was the hero up until overtime, as the only source of Arizona points. The Cardinals capitalized on the takeaway - only the third forced by the defense this season - with Dawson kicking a game-tying 43-yard field goal at the 1:24 mark of the period.
The 49ers (0-4) got the ball first in overtime needing a touchdown to end the game. DeForest Buckner, Eli Harold, Elvis Dumervil (x2), Armstrong and Solomon Thomas all got their first sacks of the season. "As players, coaches, ownership and staff, we are privileged to work in an environment that is a tremendous example of how people can come together for a common goal. We just knew if we forced a field goal, we had another opportunity". Palmer will again be on the streaming radar next week at Philadelphia. The 9ers went 2-14 again previous year, both wins coming against the other division rival Los Angeles Rams. He has a 90.9 passer rating in his past eight games against NFC squads, throwing for 10 touchdowns and four interceptions during that time. All 49ers players had their hands over their hearts during the anthem.
Just before the touchdown, the only one of the game, NaVorro Bowman picked up a shoe that had come off Ellington's foot. He was among the players kneeling Sunday, a group that included linebacker NaVorro Bowman, running back Carlos Hyde and defensive lineman Arik Armstead. "There were a couple [defenders] going back and forth, trying to switch sides", Palmer said. "Obviously, he made a great play". "We'll see how much he gets".
Fitzgerald was slow to get up, but that was because wind knocked out of him.
"The point of our demonstration was that regardless of how we feel about these issues, we all have different beliefs", safety Eric Reid said. "So it was hard to really be kind of animated and celebrate".
Jaron Brown has emerged as a go-to target for Palmer as he would have 105 yards receiving.
Hyde was hurt in the first quarter of a 41-39 loss to the Rams on September 21, but played through the injury after briefly sitting out. It's completely American. We're doing it because we want equality for everybody.
