Revenge of the Birds Recap: Arizona Cardinals head to bye week on a down note with 30-20 loss

A look at the game and what the heck went wrong with the Arizona Cardinals.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that sucked.

The Arizona Cardinals head into the bye week with another loss in Carolina, this time falling 30-20 to the Carolina Panthers.

The game started out on a bad note, with a seemingly missed call of an incomplete pass, and instead the ruling of a fumble and return for a touchdown stood for the Carolina Panthers, and things just got worse from there in the first half.

Overall, it was a tough first half of the season, and this game was a microcosm of the season: slow start, with a couple of flashes, a strong comeback that looks like it will give you a chance, and then a disappointing end.

Carson Palmer, J.J. Nelson and Tony Jefferson stood out.

The offensive line and the early defense did not.
