The Thursday night game between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals wasn't pretty early, with nine straight punts to start the game, but the scoring eventually started. The Cardinals picked up a much needed 33–21 win to improve to 2–3. The 49ers are now 1–4.

Check out the latest NFL news and rumors below. 

• 49ers defensive back Chris Davis was carted to the locker room with a knee injury on Thursday night. He did not return, and it's unclear how severe the injury is.
