Arizona Cardinals vs Cleveland Browns second half open thread

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It was one of the better first half performances of the season as the Arizona Cardinals go into halftime with a 21-10 lead.

Kyler Murray threw an interception in his own territory, but for the first time this season, we have seen the Cardinals defense show up.

Murray finished the half 12/15 for 154 yards and one touchdown, a beautiful throw to Dan Arnold in the endzone and one touchdown, an underthrown (from a touch standpoint) pick to Charles Clay.

The first half was highlighted by the return of aggressive and good Patrick Peterson and the continued dominance of Chandler Jones.

The Cardinals picked off a Baker Mayfield pass in the endzone, and Jones had a big sack early, his 15th of the season.

On offense, Murray has used his arm and legs, but Kenyan Drake is back to carrying the load, he has 11 carries for 60 yards and two touchdowns.

That’s right, the Arizona Cardinals have three first half touchdowns. Even with a Murray interception!

Let’s hope they close it out well and maybe even get a Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Go Cardinals!
