Cards stun the Niners, 21-19

The Cards defense has strung together an impressive slew of performances, including Sundays' win against the rival Niners. Both offenses looked a bit flat, but mostly because the defenses showed up. On the first Cardinals possession, Kevin Kolb lost a fumble and seemed to be concussed, so John Skelton once again stepped in. The Niners consistently had great field position, but the Cards defense held them to FGs. On one attempt, John Harbaugh elected to call a fake FG, but Whisenhunt out did him by throwing a challenge flag before the play was executed. The Cards would then score a 60 yard TD on the next play. Fitzgerald had a great game as he caught six passes for 146 yards including an electrifying TD catch and run. This win ends a 5-game losing streak to the hated Niners.
