Arizona Cardinals returned to winning ways on Thursday night, with a 33-21 win away to the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara.

The Cardinals dominated the game in both rushing and passing, with wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and running back David Johnson both scoring two touchdowns.

With Arizona missing first choice quarterback Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton stepped in and threw no interceptions in the win. His two touchdown passes both went to Fitzgerald.

Blaine Gabbert's position as the 49ers quarterback remains under pressure as he threw two interceptions in the game. He was also sacked seven times in the game, as Colin Kaepernick could be called into action in upcoming games.

Gabbert did score on of the teams three touchdowns, with Carlos Hyde and Jeremy Kerley getting the others as the 49ers moved to 1-4.

Next week the 49ers travel to Buffalo, while Arizona are at home to the New York Jets.
