Wow... Wasn't that a thriller in Foxborough. Cardinals made history in one category, and nearly made it in another. If Tom Brady hadn't found Gronkowski for the Touchdown, the Cardinals would have ended his streak of 31 games with a touchdown. We did however beat 10-0 home opener record, which is good enough for me.

Cardinals Take Out Patriots
he field-goal sailed wide left – much to the chagrin of the Gillette Stadium crowd who had never seen such a result – and the Arizona Cardinals had clearly decided to take their heart-stopping ways on the road

Cards Work Around Fumble
Williams had broken off a 13-yard run on second-and-5 to secure a first down for the Cardinals – a first down that probably should have all but sealed a win for the Cards. But on the following third down, with the Cards merely trying to run out the clock, Williams fumbled. The Patriots, down just two points, recovered at the Arizona 30-yard line.

Peterson Does It All In New England
Rushing for a first down? Check. Interception? Check. Game-saving tackle? Check. Sounds like just another day at the office for Patrick Peterson.

To beat the Patriots, on the road, "it’s what we want," Horton said. "We actually want better, but a team like this, we want the win."
