SANTA CLARA – Nothing is coming easy for the 49ers, who mostly breezed through the first seven games of the season.

But the Arizona Cardinals proved a determined and worthy opponent over the past three weeks.

Quarterback - Jimmy - Garoppolo - Blitz - Pass

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo beat an all-out blitz with a pass to running back Jeff Wilson for a 25-yard touchdown to provide the 49ers with the winning points on Sunday with just 31 seconds remaining at Levi's Stadium.

The play capped an amazing back-and-and forth game, in which the 49ers maintain a one-game lead in the NFC West with a 36-26 victory.

49ers - Play - Game - DJ - Reed

The 49ers scored on the final play of the game when D.J. Reed had a fumble return for a touchdown as the Cardinals tried a desperation play.

The 49ers improve to 9-1, while the Seattle Seahawks are in second place at 8-2.

Nothing - Rest - Way - 49ers - Games

And nothing will be easy the rest of the way for the 49ers, either, with games upcoming against Green Bay, at Baltimore, at New Orleans in the next three weeks.

The 49ers escaped Arizona with a 28-25 victory on Halloween night in Week 9, before dropping another three-point decision, 27-24, to the Seattle Seahawks in overtime last week.

49ers - Ball - Territory - Garroppolo - Mistakes

The 49ers had the ball in prime scoring territory and Garroppolo’s two mistakes were costly as they tried to rally from a 16-point deficit in the first half.

In the third quarter, Garoppolo simply did not see linebacker Jordan Hicks as he tried to get the ball to Emmanuel Sanders. Hicks intercepted the ball and returned it 48 yards.
