Cardinal fans may be having a hard time figuring out who is this team in red jerseys on the field at University of Phoenix Stadium, does not resemble the offense that we have seen all year long. The way the game started with Carson Palmer throwing his 14th interception on the year, it looked like we would see the same inept offense.But Palmer and the offense has responded and put up a half of football we have not seen sense Kurt Warner was quarterback.
Palmer finishes the half throwing for 120 yards on 7 of 9 attempts and 2 touchdowns and of course the one interception he overcame early.
The biggest highlight of the half came from the exciting rookie Andre Ellington, whom I started on my fantasy team today, has rushed for 124 yards on nine carries and may have just snatched the starting running back spot from veteran Rashard Mendenhall who was out with another nagging injury.
The play calling is solid and I look forward to the second half for the Cardinals to complete the game by doing more of the same, the currently lead at the half 21-6, as their defense has dominated the Falcons in every phase.
The wide receivers of the Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd are dominating the outside and are making excellent blocks to spring the running game, we should see the run set the pass up more in the second half, Go Cards!.
