Week 11 in the NFL ended with the San Francisco 49ers facing the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City on Monday Night. Rain was heavily falling from start to finish, but that didn’t stop the 49ers from doing whatever they wanted on offense.
The 49ers may have the best weapons on offense from top to bottom. It starts now with their new trade-deadline acquisition Christian McCaffrey. He will get the ball a lot early in the game and also is constantly the check down option for Jimmy G. He actually ended with seven catches, the same amount of rushing attempts he got.
Besides McCaffrey, who is one of the best players in the NFL, defenses have to worry about Deebo Samuel coming out of the backfield, doing an end around, or catching the ball downfield. They also have Brandon Aiyuk, who has been even better than Deebo as a true wide receiver this year and now George Kittle is starting to get into the action again as he had two touchdowns on Monday. Finally, Elijah Mitchell will come in to spell McCaffrey and they lose almost nothing. Mitchell had more carries and yards than McCaffrey did for the second-straight game, both wins.
This 49ers team is getting hot at the right time and now find themselves at the top of the NFC West. They look like legit Super Bowl contenders coming out of the NFC.
