Nothing Could Be Finer Than a Win at Carolina

The Cardinals return from their bye week and head to Carolina with a two-game lead in the NFC West. They look to extend their current win streak to three games and earn their second road win of the season.

Prior to their off week, the Cardinals defeated the Dallas Cowboys in a thrilling 30-24 OT win for the Cardinals that was aided by special teams touchdowns on the first and last plays of the game. J.J. Arrington returned the opening kickoff 93 yards giving the Cardinals an early lead. The Cardinals built a 24-14 lead late in the game on TD receptions by Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Breaston.

The Cowboys then rallied by scoring 10 points in the final three minutes, including a game-tying 52-yard field goal as time expired that sent the game into overtime. After a Dallas three-and-out on the first possession of overtime, Sean Morey broke through the line and blocked Mat McBriar’s punt, which Monty Beisel scooped up and returned three yards for the game-winning TD.

The Panthers improved to 5-2 last week with a 30-7 victory over the New Orleans Saints. QB Jake Delhomme threw for two TDs while WR Steve Smith caught 6 passes for 122 yards and a TD on the day. Carolina’s defense held the Saints number one ranked passing offense, which was averaging 324.7 yards a game through the air, to just 228 yards.

The Cardinals continue on the road next week as they face St. Louis in their first NFC West contest since the opening game of the season at San Francisco.
