What was the Cardinals Play of the Game?

USA TODAY Sports

There were actually quite a few... But we'll take three.

Play #1: Brian Hoyer drops back, throws the ball it's deflected and winds up in the hands of a Niner Defensive Lineman. Oh lovely it's going to be a pick... But what would any good O-lineman do? Jump towards the player and take it from his hands. That's exactly what rookie 5th round selection Senio Kelemete did. He came out of nowhere and out muscled the Niners D-Linemen for the ball.

Play #2: Hoyer drops back, looks deep, throws it 37 yards down the field and Michael Floyd caps off his amazing day with a TD. He finished the game with 8 catches 166 yards and a TD. This was the first passing Touch Down since November 4th. It was also a 4th down play, something the Cardinals haven't converted in a very long time.

Play #3: It's a 3rd and long. Daryn Colledge was just flagged for a false start on 3rd and 1 which seemed like what would end our drive. Hoyer drops back and examines the field. Instead of throwing it like our other QB's, he scrambles and picks up 8... Now this to me is the play of the game since we converted a third down!
