Arizona Cardinals finish season last in NFC West

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Cardinals players were cleaning out their lockers Monday after Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers put them in last place in the NFC West.

Tess Rafols talked to a couple of die-hard fans who were at Cardinals headquarters in hope of getting the last autographs of the season. She also talked to Brad Cesmat about Sunday's game and what happens next.


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Alex Smith threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to Vernon Davis in what likely was the quarterback's final hurrah with the 49ers, and San Francisco beat Arizona 38-7 on Sunday in a matchup for last place in the NFC West.

Smith was the 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick who becomes a free agent. He threw for 276 yards and two TDs overall and the Niners (6-10) made interim coach Jim Tomsula a winner in what will probably be his only game coaching the team.

Tomsula was promoted from his defensive line duties after coach Mike Singletary was fired following a loss last week.

Larry Fitzgerald had a 10-yard TD reception from John Skelton among his 11 catches for Arizona (5-11).

Brian Westbrook had a pair of 6-yard TD runs in the third quarter for San Francisco.
