A win’s a win, right?
Naturally, there was some humorous content to be found with both teams struggling offensively:
Colts-Cardinals is a fascinating combination of seemingly high stakes that could not matter less.— Robert Mays (@robertmays) September 17, 2017
Their red zone struggles especially seemed to be a key point especially early in the game.
But, the tide seemed to turn in the 4th quarter with a long TD pass to J.J. Nelson.
J.J. Nelson, so underrated— Jamey Eisenberg (@JameyEisenberg) September 17, 2017
#Cardinals WR J.J. Nelson now has 9 all-purpose TDs over his last 11 games and 7 TDs in his last 7.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) September 17, 2017
The Cardinals rallied back only to see Phil Dawson’s kick get iced and promptly missed, sending the game to overtime.

Phil Dawson has missed two chip-shot field goals in two weeks. So much for the new clutch kicker— Dan Bickley (@danbickley) September 17, 2017
But then a Honey Badger INT in the first series of overtime put the Cards in position for some Phil Dawson redemption.

So, Phil Dawson can’t botch this one up, right?
Phil Dawson has to Uber home if he misses this kick.— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) September 17, 2017
Wasn’t to be.
Dawson boots the 30-yarder, screams in joy. Cardinals win, 16-13, in OT.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) September 17, 2017
The Cardinals took home the “W” and fans rejoiced at the victory, calling out fans who’d jumped off the bandwagon.
Here comes the Cardinals bandwagon fans that left last weekend in Detroit— Dr. KC Masterpiece (@KCStories) September 17, 2017
