The Cardinals are looking to get into the playoffs and avoid a massive upset Saturday against the 49ers.
The Arizona Cardinals control their own destiny in 2020. Two wins to close out the season means they will at least earn a Wild Card berth. But even one loss creates potential chaos.
The San Francisco 49ers are looking to play spoiler Saturday as the two teams meet in what is a home game for Arizona in the 49ers’ temporary home.
What to watch for in 49ers-Cardinals
This is going to be an uphill battle for the injury-riddled 49ers. C.J. Beathard is set to start at quarterback and the strategy may be to let him loose and hope for the best.
The Cardinals are in much better shape and have bounced back to win two straight after a three-game slide. Kyler Murray just threw for over 400 yards against the Phiadelphia Eagles and DeAndre Hopkins continues to look unstoppable. This has the team in great shape to end their current playoff drought in the second season of what is a new era for the franchise.
One interesting note about this game is it is streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime. Fans in local markets can still get the game on television, but this is an example of the NFL getting creative and potentially showcasing what the future of the league’s broadcasts will look like. Still, expect some fans to complain on Twitter once they find out the news.
The 49ers are playing for pride and Beathard is no stranger to this offense. The team may even feel at home at State Farm Stadium, ready to pull off a huge upset and help out the Chicago Bears in the playoff race.
