A nearly perfect first quarter was completely undone by an awful second quarter, but the Arizona Cardinals still carry a 17-14 lead into the half.
Kyler Murray and the offense leaned on the running game and Chase Edmonds, who had 14 carries for 91 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.
Murray was 12/17 for 87 yards but took a bad sack that lead to a missed block by Edmonds on the punt that lead to a Andy Lee blocked punt and good friend Elijhaa Penny recovering the block for a touchdown.
It’s been a bad day on special teams all around.
You had Pharoah Cooper start the drive by muffing the kick off return, resulting in having to start the drive at the Cardinals own ten yard line.
The Arizona Cardinals defense got their first interception of the season, with Jordan Hicks picking off fellow rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, leading to the Cardinals second touchdown of the day.
The Cardinals controlled the game, the pace of play, yardage and time of possession, but they cling to a 17-14 lead because of miscues from every single phase of the game.
Now, it’s time to get things right and finish strong for their third win in a row.
Let’s Go Cardinals!
