Cardinals vs. 49ers: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Dylan DeSimoneCorrespondent IOctober 13, 2013

The San Francisco 49ers rode the Vernon Davis train to a third-straight victory on Sunday, defeating the division rival Arizona Cardinals at Candlestick Park. 

The 49ers Pro Bowl tight end absolutely lit it up, reaching unstoppable proportions and posting a career-high in receiving yards. Davis accounted for 71.42 percent of Colin Kaepernick's aerial production on the day, and hauled in the quarterback's only two touchdowns. 

Running back Frank Gore also had himself a day, carrying 25 times for 101 yards against a stingy Arizona run defense. 

Outside of that offensive production, San Francisco's defense continued to build on its hot streak by getting after the quarterback and forcing turnovers. With linebacker Patrick Willis returning to the lineup from a groin injury, the unit played inspired football. 

They accounted for two interceptions, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, one safety and did not allow a 100-yard rusher (not even cumulatively between Andre Ellington and Rashard Mendenhall). All in all, it was a solid showing by the 49ers, who are near the top of their division.
