NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:
Why this game is intriguing: Like defense? Hitting? Things like blocking and tackling? Cool. This is right up your alley. The NFL's most fierce front seven, featuring Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman, will rumble with the Arizona Cardinals' run-first attack. With how badly Arizona's reeling, though, this might not be as good a showdown as we would've anticipated a few weeks ago. The Cardinals still have quarterback issues, they suddenly feature an unknown running back named LaRod Stephens-Howling, and they have lost three in a row. Even at home, don't be shocked to see that skid continue, with the San Francisco 49ers further cementing themselves as one of the NFC's bullies.
