The San Francisco 49ers dynamic tight end caught eight passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns to lead the San Francisco 49ers to a 32-20 triumph over the Arizona Cardinals at Candlestick Park in a key NFC West division battle.
The win lifted the Niners to 4-2 while the Red Birds slipped to 3-3. The 49ers swept the season series from Arizona last season.
Frank Gore chipped in with 101 yards on the ground to lead a balanced attack for San Francisco.
The loss overshadowed another fine effort by up-and-coming rookie running back Andre Ellington. The sixth round pick from Clemson led Arizona in rushing with 56 yards on just seven carries, including a 15-yard scoring jaunt. He is possible star in the making.
The Cardinals were hurt by two lost fumbles and when Palmer was sacked in the end zone for a safety.
