Around The NFC West - Week 7

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald fights for yardage against Seattle cornerback DeShawn Shead.


Last time out: Buccaneers 34, 49ers 17

Record: 1-6 overall, 1-2 in division

Snapshot: The 49ers jumped out to a 14-0 lead but then gave up 27 unanswered points as the Buccaneers cruised to the win. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick struggled in his second start, completing 16-of-34 passes for a touchdown and an interception. He did have nine carries for 84 yards.

Notable: Tampa Bay was without its top two running backs, but even so, Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 154 yards while Peyton Barber added 84 yards and a touchdown. San Francisco is on pace to give up the most rushing yards in a season since 1985.

Quotable: "I think anger doesn't help you. What you've got to do is you've got to find a solution." – coach Chip Kelly after a sixth straight loss

Injury update:Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch suffered a high ankle sprain and cornerback Rashard Robinson a sprained knee in the loss.

Next up: The 49ers have a bye in Week 8

Last time out: Cardinals 6, Seahawks 6

Record: 4-1-1 overall, 1-1-1 in division

Snapshot: The Seahawks offense did nothing in regulation, but a blocked punt resulted in a late 40-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka to force overtime. The Cardinals had a chance to win the game in the extra stanza, but Chandler Catanzaro knocked his 24-yard attempt off the upright. Hauschka could have won it by nailing a 28-yard field goal, but pulled it wide left.

Notable: Quarterback Russell Wilson was 24-of-37 for 225 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Defensive end Cliff Avril had 2.5 sacks to help shut down Cardinals drives. The Seahawks didn't even pass midfield until late in the game.

Quotable:  "I thought it was just an unusual game and I don't really know what to tell you other than that. I don't even know what that tie means. I don't know if that affects the course of things or not. Two hard fighting teams battled it out tonight and unfortunately nobody won." – Seahawks coach Pete Carroll after the game

Injury update: Safety Kam Chancellor and running back Thomas Rawls are expected to return this week from injuries, Carroll said.

Next up: The Seahawks travel to play the Saints in Week 8


Last time out: Giants 17, Rams 10

Record: 3-4 overall, 2-1 in the division

Snapshot: The Rams led 10-0 but gave up 17 straight points for their third consecutive loss. Quarterback Case Keenum threw four interceptions, including a final one picked off in the end zone by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as the Rams tried to tie the game. Keenum audibled on the play, but he was not on the same page with wide receiver Brian Quick, who cut his route short.

Notable: The Giants were held to 232 total yards and 13 first downs but still emerged with the win, in large part because of a 44-yard interception return for a touchdown by safety Landon Collins. Rams running back Todd Gurley was held to 57 rushing yards on 15 attempts.

Quotable: "The windows are tight and the throws have to be more precise. I'll make changes at receiver before I make a change at quarterback," Rams coach Jeff Fisher on Keenum's job stability, as No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff continues to stay on the bench.

Key stat:3. Weeks in a row Keenum has thrown an interception on the team's final offensive play.

Next up: The Rams have a bye in Week 8
