The Monday night matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals possesses greater implications than at first glance.
For years we thought of the NFC West as the NFL's weakest division. After all, the Seattle Seahawks did win it in 2010 with a 7-9 record. That said, this Week 8 showdown is for first place in the division as we hit November football in a couple of days.
Last season, the Cardinals defeated San Francisco at home, so an upset is possible. And for the 49ers to avoid such catastrophe, a guy like Vernon Davis must come up huge. Here, we look a look at a few players from each team that will have the most impact regarding Monday night's result.
