49ers: 3 Takeaways from Week 5 Loss vs. Arizona

Kyle Terada/USA TODAY Sports

It was a hard one to watch for 49ers fans last Sunday. They went into their second home game of the season as favorites against their divisional rivals. Instead, they came away with a 28-18 loss in Levi’s Stadium.

From the excessive amount of turnovers and the continued plague of injuries, the 2018 campaign continues to go downhill. The team is 1-4 through the first five weeks of the season, and with a Monday Night game against the Packers coming up, it’s not looking to fortunate for the Bay Area squad.

Aside from the negatives that came from their home loss to the Cardinals, the team still came away with some positives to build off of. They dominated in time of possession, the defense only gave up seven points on drives not caused by a turnover, and the offense showed what they could do on their first drive when players are healthy.

The 49ers have plenty to work on before their week six matchup against Green Bay. However, let’s focus on the three takeaways from the team’s loss to the Cardinals.
