Well, it could have been worse, but it should have been better. The Arizona Cardinals are down 14-7 to the Philadelphia Eagles at halftime. Kicker Jay Feely missed two field goals and quarterback John Skelton threw an interception to Asante Samuel for a 20 yard pick-six. This easily could be a 13-7 Cards game at halftime. It is what it is.
A lot of good things though to say about the defense and the ball control offense. It was until late in the first half that Michael Vick and the Eagles got a sustained drive together. The Eagles spent most of the first half making mistakes in the form of costly penalties. A roughing the passer helped the Cards in their lone TD drive.
For the second week in a row, Skelton threw a TD pass to receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He has also targeted Andre Roberts a couple of times. Running back Beanie Wells looks much better this week too. Let’s see what the second half brings.
