Winners, losers from ‘Thursday Night Football’ as Niners go to 8-0 – Yardbarker

The San Francisco 49ers took their perfect 7-0 record to Arizona to take on the Cardinals Thursday night. With a win, the Niners would finish up the first half of its schedule undefeated. On the other hand, Arizona had won three of four since starting the season 0-3-1. A game that started with the Cardinals putting up a touchdown on their first possession culminated in the 49ers winning the game, 28-25. Here’s a look at the biggest winners and losers from San Francisco’s eighth consecutive victory to open the season. Winner: Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers Despite his team’s perfect record, Garoppolo had been inconsistent through the first seven games of the season. He responded with the best performance as a Niner. Garoppolo completed 17-of-21 passes for 172 yards with three touchdowns in the first half. Avoiding the mistakes that plagued him earlier in the season, Garoppolo threw dart after dart in connecting on all but nine of his 37 attempts for 317 yards and a career-high four touchdowns with zero interceptions.
