The Arizona Cardinals and the New York Jets came out in the first quarter and both came out on offense like I expected them to – like two teams who have horrible offenses. Neither team can run the ball. Both have inadequate quarterbacks. Both will occasionally make a play but ultimately let you down. That being said, we have a 0-0 tie at the end of the first quarter.
The Cards looked like they would move the ball on their first drive after a nice throw and catch from Cards quarterback Ryan Lindley to receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Then, they stumbled and had to punt. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was intercepted on the first play of their first offensive possession.
The Cards got nothing after starting at the Jets 26. Bad running by Cards running back Beanie Wells. The Jets got nothing after moving the ball and attempting a field goal, which was missed off the upright by Jets kicker Nick Folk. Sanchez was intercepted again at the end of the quarter. Safety Kerry Rhodes has both Cards interceptions.
