Lost in the aftermath of the Arizona Cardinals loss to the Kansas City Chiefs are a few gem plays on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball that could be considered plays of the game for the Cardinals.

Hit the jump below to see which plays made the cut, and which of those I chose as the Cards play of the game.

The fist play chosen comes courtesy of the Arizona defense, where Stewart Bradley crashed the line and tackled Shaun Draughn for a one yard loss, pushing the Chiefs back from the goal line. However, there was no dance this time.

The second play chosen is again from the defense, and is the snap right after Stewart Bradley posted a tackle for loss. This time Sam Acho tracks down Brady Quinn for a one yard loss as well, pushing the Chiefs another yard further from the zone. The result of both these plays would be K.C. settling for a field goal.

Once again the defense sneaks into contention for play of the game, this time through the actions of rookie Jamell Fleming, who upended a pulling lineman to take him out and at the same time bring down Shaun Draughn for a loss of two yards on the play.

Defense again, as safety Rashad Johnson keyed in on a tipped ball and turned that opportunity into an interception of Brady Quinn.

Finally the offense gets into the action, as running back William Powell capped off a productive rushing drive by pushing the pile into the end zone from two yards out for a score.

Lastly is another offensive contender in which Richard Bartel combined with Jaymar Johnson for an eighteen yard pitch and catch for a score.

And my choice for the play of the game has to be William Powell's two yard touchdown run. It was the Card's first touchdown of the game, and capped off a few nice rushing attempts by Powell. Additionally, it showed the fluidity of the offense in sustaining a drive and moving the football via the ground.

Let me know what you think in the poll below. And don't forget next week Friday the Oakland Raiders come to the UOP stadium.
