The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers were trying desperately to give me a reason to watch their game Sunday afternoon and, to their credit, they did so.
After 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard scrambled for a few yards and slid, Arizona safety Antoine Bethea hit Beathard in the head with his shoulder. Obviously the 49ers took exception to that hit and a brawl ensued, during which punches were thrown.

San Francisco’s Carlos Hyde was ejected, along with Arizona’s Haason Reddick and Frostee Rucker. But hey, at least something notable happened in this game.
