Arizona Cardinals get big win during Haason Reddick's 'Giant' day

A completely dominant performance from the Arizona Cardinals defense made it an easy day for an offense that ran hot and cold as the Cardinals reclaim the seventh seed in the NFC Playoffs after a 26-7 win over the New York Giants.

The Cardinals still are not back in full on offense, but the defense is making it okay as they work through things.

The Cardinals offense mustered just under 400 yards of total offense for the first time since their Hail Murray win over the Buffalo Bills.

Defensively you have to tip your cap to Vance Joseph today who schemed up a great game plan, and Haason Reddick, Dennis Gardeck and Markus Golden executed it to perfection.

Reddick finished with a franchise record five sacks giving him 10 on the season.

Dennis Gardeck had two sacks, giving him five on the season and Golden has two since being traded back to the desert with his single sack today.

Eight sacks of Daniel Jones set the tone and will hopefully be something we see more of next week.

A great finish for the Cardinals as they get back over .500 to 7-6 and maintain a one game lead on the NFC Central teams in pursuit of the seven seed.

Way to go, Cardinals.
