S.F. Examiner: Turnovers, penalties plague Niners in loss to Cardinals

By Art Spander
San Francisco Examiner

The 49ers flexed their muscles Thursday night. Well, running back Carlos Hyde did, and it cost him 15 yards for taunting. Which is sort of the way things went for the Niners at a Levi’s Stadium that was — what? — half-full against an opponent, who despite being forced to use a backup quarterback, all there.
