Can it be said enough times? It's not a Cardinals game until someone has a heart attack. This is probably the third biggest emotional swing I have been through as a Cardinals fans.

This week there were several key plays that one the Cardinals the game. Read about each one after the break!

1) Patrick Peterson Interception: This play in my mind set the tone for the defense the rest of the game. A deflected pass by Darnell Docket led to a circus interception catch by Patrick Peterson. It was the first Tom Brady turnover in over 240 attempts and it put the offense in a good position.

2) Quentin Groves Punt Block: This play all but won the game for the Cardinals as the offense was struggling to score points against an improved New England defense. The play led to an offensive touchdown and is another step in ushering in the Quentin Groves Era in Arizona.

3) Kevin Kolb Touchdown Dive: Kolb did not play a great game of football, however he wasn't a liability either. He avoided pressure (despite it always being a roll-out to his right), threw for a touchdown and only had one turnover on a fumble. His 6 yard TD sneak practically sealed the game for the Cardinals.

Which play is your play of the game? You have a play that wasn't listed? Let me know below in the comments.
