A recap of the latest news and notes from around the NFC West division following Week 14's slate of NFL action:
Arizona Cardinals (6-7)
What Happened:Four field goals off the foot of kicker Phil Dawson powered Arizona past Tennessee this past Sunday, as the Cardinals defeated the Titans 12-7.
- With his five-catch, 44-yard performance against Tennessee, Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald surpassed Randy Moss on the NFL's career receiving yardage list. At 15,311 yards, Fitzgerald now sits at No. 3 all-time behind Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens.
- Injuries are impacting Arizona's starting offensive line, with veteran left tackle Jared Veldheer moving to injured reserve this week. The Cardinals signed veteran O-lineman Khalif Barnes this week to help plug holes injuries have created, AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban notes.
- Arizona's defense was key to Sunday's victory, as it held the Titans to just 204 total yards.
What's Next:The Cardinals head to our nation's capital in Week 15 for a game against the Washington Redskins.
Los Angeles Rams (9-4)
What Happened:The Rams dropped a 43-35 result to the Philadelphia Eagles, but maintain a one-game lead in the division having won six of their eight games since facing Seattle in Week 5.
- Robert Woods (shoulder), the Rams' second-leading receiver who's missed the past three games, and linebacker Connor Barwin (forearm), who's missed the past two, could be back in the lineup this weekend, TheRams.com's Myles Simmons reports.
- Some numbers to know: For the second time in his three NFL seasons, Rams running back Todd Gurley has topped the 1,000-yard rushing mark; first-year receiver Cooper Kupp, a Yakima, Wash. native out of Eastern Washington University, set a Rams franchise record for most receptions by a rookie in a single season (56). Kupp leads all Rams pass catchers, as well as all rookie wideouts across the NFL, with 783 yards receiving.
- The Rams' latest matchup brought plenty of celebrities to L.A. Coliseum.
What's Next:First place in the NFC West will be on the line this Sunday at CenturyLink Field, where Los Angeles faces the Seahawks (8-5) at 1:05 p.m. PT.
San Francisco 49ers (3-10)
What Happened:Making his second start for the 49ers, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo helped lead the club to a 26-16 win over the Houston Texans, San Francisco's first set of back-to-back wins since the 2014 season. Garoppolo finished Sunday's game 20-of-33 for a career-high 334 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
- San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan is encouraged by what he's seen from Garoppolo thus far, writes 49ers.com's Keiana Martin. Garoppolo joins Drew Brees (2002), Ben Roethlisberger (2004), and Trevor Siemian (2016) as the only active quarterbacks to win their first four NFL starts.
- For a third straight season, 49ers left tackle Joe Staley is a finalist for the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.
What's Next:After two games on the road, the 49ers return to the Bay Area in Week 15 for a game against the Titans.
