The Arizona Cardinals defeated the San Francisco 49ers on the road by a score of 20-10.
How did Twitter react to the game?
It all started, sadly, with yet ANOTHER missed Phil Dawson field goal:

With the Niners having 16 players on injured reserve and Arizona featuring the same with Palmer and David Johnson on IR, some fans pointed out how unlucky the two teams’ seasons have been.

Drew Stanton was solid in his performance, extending plays and tossing two touchdowns.
The TDs are nice but Drew Stanton needs to be following them up with the Stanton dance if he wants to be a true No. 1 QB in this league.— Luke Lapinski (@LukeLapinski) November 5, 2017
The Niners and Beathard, meanwhile...really struggled.

Late in the game Andre Ellington had a...catch?
No idea what they will call this because i don’t know what a catch is.— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) November 5, 2017
And Drew Stanton ran a read-option play for a clutch first-down that allowed Dawson to kick a field goal for a two score AZ lead:

Then suddenly, after a hit on the quarterback from Antoine Bethea, fights broke out everywhere!

4 players were tossed from the game and the Cardinals got another win with Drew Stanton off of the 20th interception of Karlos Dansby’s career, putting him in an elite club of players with 40 sacks and 20 interceptions.
Karlos Dansby’s 20th career interception should seal this.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) November 6, 2017
He’s a legend.
Still my favorite gif. Never change, @drewstanton https://t.co/6gmfTRx4Xf— Lindsey Collom (@LindseyCollom) November 6, 2017
But of course, the tweet of the day from this sloppy game from two hampered teams goes to...
