In the same way, the 49ers and the Cardinals, the latter who will play at home, also have history, because they are direct rivals in the Western Division of the National Conference.

Without a doubt, 49ers fans will be in the majority at the Aztec stadium, since they are one of the teams with the largest fan base in Mexico, in addition to being 5-time champions of the super bowlwhile the Cardinals have never managed to raise the vince lombardi trophy.

San Francisco will arrive at a better moment, being second in the NFC West, with a record of 5 wins and 4 losses, with a 2-win streak currently in a row, and on the other hand Arizona are third with 4 wins and 6 losses, although they arrive after beating the Rams in week 10.
