After tying a career high with 13 catches on Monday night, Fitz had been quiet for almost all four quarters (plus overtime) of Sunday's game - until Carson Palmer found him for the game-winner with less than a minute to play in OT. The 49ers, who did not score any touchdowns in the first two games of the season, fell short in a 41-39 loss to the Rams in Week 3. Here are all of Sunday's takeaways. This again represents a winnable game for San Francisco, but if the 49ers don't beat the Colts, they may go winless in October with the Redskins, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles lined up next.

The 49ers (0-4) held the football for 7:36 after a field goal from Robbie Gould put the 49ers up 15-12.

That opened the door for Arizona.

It was more of the same to start out the second half, after the offense marched down the field on their opening possession a costly offensive pass interference call set them back. Under duress all day behind an injury-riddled offensive line, he completed 33 of 51 for 357 yards and was intercepted in the end zone on a tipped pass on the game's opening series. Keep in mind: The 49ers had tallied only three sacks in their first three games combined.

Kyle Juszczyk, Jaquiski Tartt, and Brock Coyle, all of whom sustained concussions against the Rams are listed as questionable for Sunday but all of them had a full practice on Friday and are hopeful of play.

According to CBP, they "will inform future design standard (s) which will likely continue to evolve to meet (U.S. The sample walls will be built to scale, and function as usable barriers along the border.

All told, the 49ers allowed 368 yards, likely more than they'd have liked but they still limited Arizona to a respectable 4.7 yards per play.

For the San Francisco, the most disappointing takeaway of the game comes from the fact that the team was unable to find the end zone throughout almost 70 minutes of gameplay. Hyde would also have 27 yards in the passing game. Beathard handed off to Hyde, who gained 15 yards on the play. Ranging from rookie wideout Aldrick Robinson, all they way to 10-year veteran Pierre Garçon, the 49ers let more than a few well-thrown balls hit the turf.

The 49ers lost a barn-burner in San Fransisco for Week 3's Thursday night game. Rashard Robinson almost picked off the pass, but Armstrong was able to make a diving catch for the takeaway. Carson Palmer had been sacked 11 times (third-most in the NFL) and pressured on 31.3 percent of his dropbacks, tied for the fifth-highest rate in the NFL. San Francisco is definitely an improved team from 2016, even if it isn't showing up in the win column yet.

Notable players who recorded a sack included rookie defensive end Solomon Thomas, who recorded his first in the National Football League, and Elvis Dumervil, who recorded both his 100th and 101st. Last week various surveys showed people weren't thrilled with Trump's call for firing players who kneel but on balance they agreed with him that kneeling during the anthem is inappropriate. Dumervil now has 101 sacks. 100 and 101 for his career.

- The Cards got good receiving production from both Ellington and Chris Johnson.

On the season, Palmer has 925 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions, while Fitzgerald is the top Arizona receiver with 34 targets, 22 receptions, 244 yards and a TD. The Cardinals are not so well-rested after playing on Monday night, the Arizona ground attack has been nearly non-existent after losing David Johnson, and the offensive line remains in shambles.
