As They Giveth, the Cards Taketh Away

The Arizona Cardinals defense, known this season for giving up several big plays, now officially lead the league in takeaways.  After Sunday’s three forced turnovers, they have 22 takeaways on the season.

That’s quite an accomplishment considering no one really talks about them, at least not nearly as much as the hearalded offense.  The Cardinals swarm to the ball and the backups in the secondary did a very good job on Sunday.  Rookie Dominique-Rodgers Cromartie had his first two NFL interceptions on Sunday.  Roger Brown, in the game for the injured Rod Hood, had a great pass deflection on Seahawks receiver Koren Robinson on Sunday to take a sure touchdown away.

They will have to work harder for their takeaway’s this week as the New York Giants arrive and Eli Manning and company don’t make many mistakes.

Go Cards!

    You are correct Tyler. I wrote that one up in a hurry and for some reason had Roger on the brain. Thanks for the correction.
