Arizona Cardinals Form
The Arizona Cardinals defied their underdog status to bag a 27-17 win over the Los Angeles Rams in their last match, leaving them 4-6 for the last 10 matches and 1-4 in the last 5 at home.
The Arizona Cardinals continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 25.0 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 23.0 points, this suggests the offensive unit is consistent. The art of defending isn’t something the Arizona Cardinals excel in though. By allowing 25.8 points per game, their defense has been below average compared to the rest of the league this year.
Unsurprisingly, the Arizona Cardinals are unlikely to make the NFL postseason as things stand. Few people expected the home side to go far, and given their 4-6 regular season record, it seems they had good reason.
San Francisco 49ers Form

This is more than the away team usually gives up, having allowed a decent 18.1 points per game this season.
Despite going no further than the wild card round of the playoffs in January, San Francisco 49ers are hopeful of a potential NFC Championship challenge after going 5-4 in the regular season so far.
