Arizona Cardinals have massive holiday hangover in embarrassing loss to 49ers

There is not a whole lot to say.

The Arizona Cardinals were gifted a third national game and this one they looked like the 2018 team, not the up and coming team everyone was excited about.

The Cardinals were embarrassed at home against a completely decimated San Francisco 49ers roster 20-12.

Kyler Murray struggled against Robert Saleh's defense and no one stepped up to help.

The offensive line was awful today with no ability to get a push in the run game and were blitzed heavily into three sacks and a number of throw aways.

Defensively, Kyle Shanahan embarrassed Vance Joseph as Jeff Wilson Jr. had 183 yards rushing on only 22 carries, good for 8.3 yards per carry and a receiving touchdown.

The story of the day was how overmatched Kliff Kingsbury and the offense was though, as they had no answer for a 49ers defense that was hurting quite a bit.

The Cardinals will end their season next week against the Los Angeles Rams and are likely to miss the playoffs again.

What a waste of a 6-3 start to the season.
