San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Vernon Davis had eight catches for 180
yards and two touchdowns -- almost all of it coming in the first half -- and
the San Francisco 49ers beat the Arizona Cardinals 32-20 on Sunday for their
third straight win.
Davis was a frequent target of Colin Kaepernick early on, catching seven
passes for 171 yards and two scores before halftime, including a 61-yarder.
Kaepernick had 252 yards passing, but also turned the ball over twice, and
Frank Gore ran for 101 yards on 25 carries for the 49ers (4-2), who have
beaten the Cardinals five straight times at home.
Kendall Hunter had a 9-yard touchdown run for the 49ers in the fourth quarter
that came after a Larry Fitzgerald fumble and capped a 9 1/2-minute drive
spanning 18 plays and 89 yards.
The Cardinals (3-3) had a two-game winning streak snapped and will have just
three days off before playing Seattle at home on Thursday night.
Carson Palmer threw for 298 yards and two touchdowns -- a 75-yard hookup with
Fitzgerald and a 10-yard pass to Michael Floyd -- but threw two interceptions
that led to field goals for San Francisco.
