San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals - 10/1/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

"We've got to find a way to get pressure on the quarterback because if you don't get pressure on the quarterback with four, that's going to trickle to your coverages", coach Kyle Shanahan said.

There was a lot more standing and a lot less kneeling at Sunday's National Football League games in what could be viewed as a victory for team unity or President Trump, depending on your perspective.

- Among the Cardinals listed inactives were wide receiver Chad Williams and cornerback Tramon Williams. They can't afford home divisional losses, and particularly one to the worst team in the division. In the other two close losses, the two defenses - for the most part - controlled the games while the offense failed to score a touchdown in either matchup. Palmer would go 5-7 on the winning drive, leading the Cardinals 75-yards down the field. The 9ers went 2-14 again past year, both wins coming against the other division rival Los Angeles Rams.

He was also terrible under pressure, completing just three of his 11 passes and taking three sacks when under duress, according to Pro Football Focus' Refocused recap.

The Saints, including quarterback Drew Brees, were seen kneeling as a team before the anthem.

Coming off of his best performance as a 49er, WR Marquise Goodwin will look to build on this against Arizona.

The San Francisco 49ers are 0-4 to start the 2017 season, but if there's one positive to take away, it's the fact that they're getting better. Arizona is hoping Bucannon's play making ability will change that.

Hyde is now averaging a career-best 5.2 yards per carry through three games and scored two touchdowns in last week's loss to the Rams. Brown has showed he is more than capable of being that weapon when healthy. I'll take Arizona to cover in a sloppy football game.

Arizona WR Larry Fitzgerald seems to be defying father time. They're a team that makes really dumb, costly mistakes.

Hyde sustained a hip injury against the Rams as he ran for 84 yards and two touchdowns. In a CNN poll taken last week, senior citizens were waaaay more likely than any other age group to say that kneeling during the anthem is the "wrong thing" to do to express your political beliefs. "That's not what I qualify as success".

- The Cards got good receiving production from both Ellington and Chris Johnson. It is important that we continue to emphasize that despite our different backgrounds and beliefs, we still love each other and are truly a brotherhood. "It's always been back and forth".

The 49ers were at the center of the anthem protest issue a year ago, when quarterback Colin Kaepernick started it in response to police brutality and racial injustice.

Several Cleveland Browns players held their fists high during the anthem before their game against the Cincinnati Bengals. That preparation will come without the help of defensive end, Robert Nkemdiche, who is set to miss another game after reaggravating his calfduring week three's loss to the Cowboys.

Battle of the kickersKicker Robbie Gould #9 of the San Francisco 49ers reacts with punter Bradley Pinion #5 after kicking a second quarter field goal.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has confirmed that Iupati will have to undergo surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow. Knowing this, are the Cardinals inspired?
