With the Arizona Cardinals defeating the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night 26-18, Seth Cox and I recorded our All-Cardinals show a day later. So we got together on Wednesday evening and talked about the win that everyone in the locker room said the team "finally finished."

Bruce Arians talked about finally winning a close one and closing out a game.

But with what happened, we discuss whether the team actually finished the game or not. The consensus? They did and they didn't . The defense did, while the offense and special teams did not.

We go over players and plays who stood out, both good and bad, as well as whether the Cardinals played well or should have played better.

I maintain the Cardinals played well on defense and offense. They held the Ravens under 300 yards of offense. They had over 400 yards of offense. They were not other worldly in the red zone, but they were not complete failures there like they had been in their other two losses. They ran the ball and they threw it well. They stopped the run.

In all, the defense and offense were great.

Special teams was not. There was a missed field goal, a missed extra point and a blocked punt.

After looking back at the win, we looked ahead to the game this weekend in Cleveland -- another game the Cardinals should win.
