The San Francisco 49ers routed the Arizona Cardinals 38-10 on Monday Night Football in Mexico City to wrap up NFL Week 11.

The 49ers also easily covered after closing as 9.5-point favorites. The Cardinals actually jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first quarter as the 49ers’ offense started slow, but then they started rolling in the second quarter to take a 17-10 lead into halftime (covering as 6-point, first-half faves while going over the first-half total of 21.5 points).

The 49ers’ defense hadn’t given up a point in the second halves of their two previous games against the Rams and Chargers and continued that run by shutting out the Cardinals 21-0 in the second half (covering as 4-point, second-half faves and staying Under the second-half total of 21.5 points).

San Francisco led 31-10 after three quarters and then added an insurance score with 10:08 left on Jimmy Garoppolo’s 38-yard TD pass to George Kittle that also put the game Over the full-game total of 43 points.
