49ers Hand Cardinals Fourth Defeat to Extend NFL Division Lead

The San Francisco 49ers won 24-3 to hand the division-rival Arizona Cardinals their fourth consecutive defeat in the National Football League.

San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith threw two first-half scoring passes to Michael Crabtree last night and also found Randy Moss for a touchdown at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

“Crabtree made great plays, Randy on that touchdown made me look good,” Smith said in a televised interview. “We executed well tonight.”

San Francisco improved to 6-2 atop the National Football Conference West Division. The Cardinals, who opened the season with four straight wins, are tied for second place at 4-4 with the Seattle Seahawks.

San Francisco led 17-0 at halftime as Smith found Crabtree for three- and nine-yard touchdowns either side of a 43-yard field goal by David Akers.

It was 24-0 midway through the third quarter after Smith tossed a pass to the 35-year-old Moss, who sprinted for a 47-yard touchdown. It was the 155th career scoring reception for Moss, tops among active players.

“Randy made a great play on the corner out there just to get the first down,” Smith said. “All of a sudden he cut back, broke a couple of tackles and took it to the house. He’s still got it.”

Jay Feely completed the scoring with 58 seconds to play in the third quarter with a 28-yard field goal for Arizona.

Smith completed 18 of his 19 pass attempts to finish with 232 yards. Cardinals quarterback John Skelton went 32-for-52 for 290 yards and one interception. Each quarterback was sacked four times.
