That was the reaction from Twitter today.
The NFL could be making up that there is a Niners-Cardinals game that is currently 5-3 and get away with it. No one will ever check.— Kevin Clark (@bykevinclark) October 28, 2018
No Kevin, I watched every second. It was as bad as the score indicated.
The Giants lead the Diamondbacks 5-3 after 4.5 innings ... oh wait, it’s 49ers 5 - Cardinals 3— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) October 28, 2018
This Cardinals/Niners game is Butt Ugly— Big Cat (@BarstoolBigCat) October 28, 2018
The NFL does highlight videos for every game. They usually are ~10 minutes long. I think some intern in Culver City is going to be hard pressed to get to three minutes out of this Niners-Cardinals game.— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) October 28, 2018
I would rather watch the Spelling Bee on ESPN than having to watch this Arizona vs 49ers game. pic.twitter.com/zbJExMnW81— Ƥσяиɛℓιʋƨ Ħʋвɛят ™️ (@GHernandez916) October 28, 2018
Even the @RedZoneChannel is ashamed to show that Cardinals-49ers game— #FireMcCarthy (@safewalk69) October 28, 2018
When you turn on NFL Redzone to see Arizona vs SF is the only game on. pic.twitter.com/h1sKA9WLSS— Matt Gothard (@mattgothardtv) October 28, 2018
I can’t believe people actually spent money to see a baseball game between the 49ers and Cardinals.— Andrew. (@LatiNo_Chill) October 28, 2018
The loser of this Cardinals-49ers game should get relegated to the AAF— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) October 28, 2018
I think this is a combination joke of soccer and the new AAF league.
So happy @brit10barrier talked me into taking the over of the niners cards game. The current score is 5-3.....— Trey Russell (@sVIxman) October 28, 2018
Ahh yes, if you gambled on this game you deserved to lose money.
49ers have 67 total yards - and lead 5-3— scott bordow (@sbordow) October 28, 2018
Baseball jokes were heavy from the baseball fans on Twitter as well.
The San Francisco Giants are beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 in an epic NFL showdown!!— Vernon Wells (@VernonWells10) October 28, 2018
We're so embarrassed...— Cut4 (@Cut4) October 28, 2018
We had NO idea that the Giants & Dbacks were playing today. pic.twitter.com/Qvxnlp1d5j
The jokes were relentless and deservedly so.
Until C.J. Beathard’s hit Marquise Goodwin on a long 55-yard catch and run touchdown, the game was hard to watch.
For Arizona Cardinals fans, it got a little easier as they saw a little something from that Josh Rosen guy.
He stood tall and delivered late and it gave the Cardinals and their fans the last laugh, at least this Sunday.
