“We feel very close,” Mettenberger told reporters after the game. “We’re not doing enough to win football games.
“That’s the bottom line and the most important thing. But rookie running back, rookie left tackle, rookie quarterback, rookie middle linebacker. We’re doing a lot of good things.”
CARDINALS WIN AGAIN

The veteran’s lone touchdown pass was a 42-yard to Emmanuel Sanders in the first half and he admitted to having an unproductive outing.
“We didn’t execute very well and I just think I didn’t play very well,” Manning said, before adding, “No excuses.
“I have to play better and we have to score more points than seven.”

“I turned it over close a couple of times and that can’t happen.”
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters after the game: “It was a spectacular performance by our defense today.
“So many guys stepped up and played great, living in the moment and competing like the dickens and making tremendous and athletic football plays.”
