The San Francisco 49ers are playing their game and as such, hold a 6-0 lead over the Arizona Cardinals early in the second quarter. The Niners have dominated both time of possession field position and have also knocked Arizona's starting quarterback, Kevin Kolb, out of the game on a sack.
The Cardinals defense is playing well, again, but the 49ers held Arizona to zero first downs and have won the punting game. Twice Arizona was forced to kick from their end zone. On the first, SF started their drive at the Arizona 43 and were able to put three points on the board with 48-yard kick from David Akers.
On the Cardinals second punt from deep in their end, 49ers Ted Ginn Jr. returned the ball 53 yards to put the visiting team on the door step of the end zone. The Cardinals defense held in the red zone and forced SF into another field goal.
The Cardinals suffered a significant blow in their first offensive possession with Kolb taking a knee to the back of the head. His return is questionable. Arizona also lost starting ILB Paris Lenon with a knee injury. He's also questionable to return.
