“[Murray and Kirk] are the first quarterback-receiver duo under the age of 23 to record a three-touchdown game since the Minnesota Vikings’ Fran Tarkenton connected with tight end Charley Ferguson on Nov. 11, 1962, for three scores.
“I think consistency at the quarterback position always helps,” Kingsbury said of Kirk. “You look at those great ones, they always have a guy in place for a long time where you build that rapport, you build that trust, and you’re their guy. I think there’s a lot of factors that play into it,”” Arizona Sports.com informs us.

It may be so long that they can’t suit up 46 players Sunday against the Cardinals. 14 players were either out of practice or limited Thursday, including tight end George Kittle and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. They were both out of practice for the second consecutive day,” reports Niners Wire.
Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco NFL Week 11 Game Pick
Debuting kicker Chase McLaughlin missed a would-be game-winning field goal in overtime. However, even if he had converted it, San Fran still wouldn’t have covered the point spread. And it was more injuries than Chase’s inexperience that cost them their unbeaten streak. The 49ers will beat the Cards, but it will be closer than those 10.5 points.
