Arizona Cardinals @ Houston Texans 2nd half thread

The Arizona Cardinals defense has been great and Blaine Gabbert looks good through the first half.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals started slowly, but their defense forced two turnovers and Blaine Gabbert responded with two touchdown throws and the Arizona Cardinals lead the Houston Texans at the half 14-10.

The Cardinals have responded after a slow start offensively, where they were going backwards and the Texans made them pay with a touchdown drive capped off with a Lamar Miller touchdown catch.

The Cardinals couldn’t respond and had to punt, then Budda Baker made a huge play, getting a sack, causing a fumble and recovering the fumble to give the Cardinals a short field.

Then Blaine Gabbert threw his first touchdown pass of the day to Larry Fitzgerald.

The Cardinals defense set up the offense again, getting a Patrick Peterson interception off a deflection by Deone Bucannon and setting up Gabbert for his second touchdown pass of the day, a dart on an out to rookie tight end Ricky Seals-Jones.
