1. San Francisco 49ers (8-0) – Play on MNF
Recap: After jumping out to a two-score lead in the first half on Week 9, the San Francisco 49ers spent the rest of the game trying to fend off an Arizona Cardinals team that simply wouldn’t die. With a 28-14 lead going into the fourth quarter, the Cardinals scored 11 unanswered points in the final frame to draw to within three, but were unable to get the ball back from San Francisco late in the fourth quarter in order to at least have a chance to tie the game up. In the win, Jimmy Garoppolo had one of his best games of the 2019 campaign.
Outlook: With the Niners’ win and the New England Patriots’ loss in Week 9, San Fran is the only undefeated team left in the NFL. Despite that fact, the Niners are not running away with the NFC West and have the Seattle Seahawks breathing down their neck. San Fran has a good opportunity to create some space between itself and Seattle in Week 10, as the two teams have a Monday Night Football tilt that is easily the game of the week.
