Arizona Cardinals Over Dolphins: Extra Points

New, comments

With the initial analysis of Sunday's big win for the Cardinals already up, here's a quick look at some significant accomplishments by the Cardinals as a whole and a few by individual players. 

  • The Cardinals have scored at least 20 points in 10 straight games dating back to last season. That's the longest current streak in the NFL.
  • Kurt Warner posted his third career perfect QB rating and first since 2000. Boldin5_medium
    He joins Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in league history with three 'perfect' games. He's also the first Cardinals' quarterback to post a perfect rating since 1975. Edit: After some research, Ben Roethlisberger also has three career perfect games.
  • Edgerrin James added another bullet point to his impressive resume when he topped 15,000 yards from scrimmage. He's just the 14th player to do that in league history.
  • Anquan Boldin's big day marked his 22nd career 100 yard game and that ties the franchise record, currently held by Jackie Smith. Boldin will certainly take that record down sometime this season. It was also the sixth time that Q and Fitz both had 100 yards in the same game.
  • Boldin's three touchdowns were the most by a Cardinals' receiver since Rod Moore in 1997, but two short of the franchise record held by Bob Shaw (1950). 
  • Tim Hightower is also the first running back in Cardinals' history to score touchdowns in his first two career NFL games.
  • The last time the Cardinals were 2-0 was 1991 but the last time the team was 3-0 was 1974. That's something that team will look to rectify this week when they travel to our nation's capital to tangle with the Redskins.
