Arizona drops another

New, comment

Arizona's loss to Washington was a bit of a case of the Cardinals throwing away a win. They had the opportunities, but they were squandered. There was a chance to tie the game, but the playcall on the two point conversion was trickery, and it failed (seriously, with the game on the line you put the ball in Boldin's hands and tell him to throw a touchdown pass?) Neil Rackers had the chance to win the game, but he missed a 54 yard field goal with 2 seconds to go.

Kurt Warner saw the end to his come-out-of-nowhere-and-take-the-league-by-storm series of performances. He threw two costly interceptions, both of which led to touchdowns, one of which was returned for a score.

Arizona is better than that. This was a game that should have been won, but it was thrown away. I'm pretty disgusted right now, though I guess you can take some good away from it: despite doing everything possible to lose the game, it ultimately came down to a last second field goal that flew wide left.

Unfortunately, it also means a slip to 3-4 and second place in the division. The Seahawks easily blew apart the Rams, 33-6. St. Louis is, oh by the way, the worst team in the NFL. No doubt. Not even a contest. They've been outscored by 113 points. 113. That's an average of 16 points per game. Only Miami compares, and they've been outscored by 75 points this season including the blowout they received this weekend, courtesy New England.

The division is falling apart, and Arizona can't seem to seize the moment.
