San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals

Statistically, it would appear that the Cardinals should have won this game. They out-gained the 49ers 287 to 269, forced one more turnover, and had a better conversion rate on third down (57% to 31%).

Unfortunately, not all turnovers are created equal. While all three of Colin Kaepernick’s interceptions were near midfield and only resulted in three Arizona points, both of the Cardinal’s turnovers happened inside their own 2o-yard line. The 49ers were able to capitalize on those turnovers and turn them into 14 of the team’s 21 points.
