It was exactly what we expected, the Arizona Cardinals to come out and put up 14 points behind Drew Stanton on offense and lead the San Francisco 49ers 14-3 at halftime.
In fact, the 14 points is the second most scored by the Cardinals in the first half this year… so maybe it was Carson Palmer… I kid.
Stanton does have two touchdowns to only one interception while Phil Dawson missed yet another field goal. So, the Cardinals could have even 10 more points on the scoreboard if not for the mistakes.
