49ers vs. Cardinals score update: Niners offense dominates as San Francisco leads 17-0

Michael Crabtree and Alex Smith continue to be in synch as the San Francisco 49ers have dominated the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football in Phoenix and lead the contest, 17-0 at the half.

Smith connected with Crabtree to cap an eight-play, 68-yard drive that took just two minutes, 48 seconds to complete in the second quarter. Crabtree leads all of the game's receivers with four catches for 42 yards and two touchdowns. Smith has been efficient in the first half, connecting on 14-of-15 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns.

Arizona has struggled mightily on offense, and has just 42 total yards. The 49ers' vaunted run defense has lived up to its top billing and nearly held the Cardinals to negative yardage in the first half as running back LaRod Stephens-Howling carried the ball seven times for 6 yards on the ground.

The Cardinals will receive the ball to begin the second half.
