The RPO offense wasn't the main ingredient in the Cardinals win versus the Niners Sunday.
While Kyler Murray's 91 yards rushing and 230 yards passing was a strong contribution, the Cardinals defense forced the niners to go 2-11 on 3rd down and 0-2 on 4th down.
What we learned
The Cardinals Defense is shifty and quick. (See DB Patrick Peterson).
The Arizona Cardinals can sustain an offensive drive.
DeAndre Hopkins is himself. (14 receptions, 141 yards on the day).
The 20-24 final scare is an honest indicator of just how chippy the game had gotten in the final stretch.
Although the Niners offense was unable to covert towards the games end, their coaching staff should stay optimistic . It's just week 1 in a long NFL season.
