On second-and-7 on their first drive from their own 23-yard line, Cardinals quarterback David Blough – Arizona’s fourth starting quarterback of the season – took the snap in the shotgun and tossed to wide receiver Pharoh Cooper, who was lined up behind Blough and broke to the right. Cooper ran a few steps and then turned and threw back to Blough.
Blough stepped up around the 12-yard-line and launched a deep ball as he got hit.
A.J. Green went up and took the ball away from 49ers defensive back Deommodore Lenoir in a contested play at around the 38-yard line and then Green rumbled his way into a touchdown to complete the 77-yard score.
It was Green’s second touchdown of the season and his longest touchdown since another 77-yard score in 2017 in what may end up being his last NFL game.
