Cards Prepare for the Dolphins to Come to Town

The Cardinals play at home for the first time in 2008 when they take on Miami. The Dolphins will be making their first regular season appearance in Arizona since 1996 and first-ever visit to University of Phoenix Stadium.

Arizona is coming off a 23-13 win at San Francisco. It was the team’s first week 1 road victory since 1999 and losses by Seattle and St. Louis put the Cardinals alone atop the NFC West a week into the ’08 campaign. Against San Fran, the Cards enjoyed a 5-0 edge in the turnover battle and dominated time of possession in the 2nd half (22:38 to 7:22).

The Cardinals have now scored 20+ points in each of their last 9 games, the longest current streak in the NFL (Saints & Chargers, 7) and the 2nd-longest such streak in franchise history (11, 1983-84).

The Dolphins are coming off a 20-14 week 1 home loss to the Jets that came down to the final seconds. The game was not decided until Chad Pennington was INT’d by Darrelle Revis in the end zone with :05 left.

A win against Miami would make Arizona 2-0 for the first time since 1991. The Cardinals were 6-2 at University of Phoenix Stadium a year ago and a sell-out this week would be the team’s 23rd straight since opening the venue in 2006.

Also, fans will be treated to a special pre-game performance by Grammy-nominated recording artist Daughtry beginning at 12:40 PM.
