But the game that has excited the fans is the one between 49ers and Cardinals on Sunday. The 49ers had an amazing 2019 season by clinching the NFC West in addition to the number one seed. They also advanced to the NFC Championship game and then to Super Bowl before throwing away a lead against the Chiefs.
Looking at the Cardinals last season, they had a dismal performance overall by finishing 4th in NFC West and failed to qualify for the play-offs despite putting up a better performance than 2018. Even though the 49ers are heavily favored in this, Cardinals have little to lose.
