Seth and Tyler talk about the win over the San Francisco 49ers.

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It wasn’t pretty, but it sure as hell counts.

That is the thought process we must have with the Arizona Cardinals last second 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers, otherwise, you’ll make yourself crazy.

Did the offense play poorly? Yes.

Was the run game horrific against a historically bad run defense? Yes.

Did Carson Palmer make some bone headed mistakes? Yes.

Yet through all of that, it did not matter, because it was a win.

Defensively, the Arizona Cardinals dominated the run game, yet struggled at times to slow down an impotent 49ers passing attack. It is the continued good and bad that is the Arizona Cardinals defense.

Special teams continues to be less than expected, but overall it didn’t matter. Why? Cause they won.

No one should be excited about the way the Cardinals played, but there is more than enough to be excited about when it comes to the fact that the Arizona Cardinals won.

Yet, when all was said and done, they won.

Check out the video, give us your thoughts and as always, Go Cardinals.
