That would be this Sunday against NFC West rival San Francisco at Candlestick Park. This is a big game for both teams.They're each 3-2 and trail the Seahawks by one game in the rugged NFC West. The Niners swept both games from Arizona last season so the Cardinals will have playback in mind.
This game will match two of the best defenses in the NFL. The Cardinals were brilliant last Sunday against the Panthers, sacking Cam Newton seven times and forcing four turnovers. They've allowed just 16 points in their last two games and have two of the best linebackers in the division in Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington.
The 49ers are fresh off a 34-3 thrashing of the Houston Texans and have a pair of excellent linebackers themselves in Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. This should be a classic, hard-hitting battle between two clubs that are outstanding in stopping the run and play pretty good pass defense as well.
In fact, Arizona ranks third in the league is rushing defense, allowing only 79 yards a game while the Niners are second in pass defense, allowing just 189 yards per contest through the air.
