The day started off with a sack of Carson Palmer. It was a sign of things to come so far for the Arizona Cardinals. Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie quarterback Mike Glennon threw a touchdown pass to receiver Mike Williams for the only score in the first quarter, giving the Bucs a 7-0 lead.
After a three and out on the first series, once again the Cards moved the ball only to come up empty after a Rashard Mendenhall fumble. He fumbled on the play before as well but he was ruled down. Palmer is not finding anytime to throw to his receivers. Tight end Jim Dray caught as ball but passes to Jaron Brown and Michael Floyd came up empty. He’s mostly been checking down to Mendenhall.
As for the Bucs, Glennon had a rough start on his first drive, however he looked like an all-pro on his next drive leading the Bucs to a touchdown that honestly looked very easy. The Cards defense allowed Glennon and also the Bucs running game to get started They are giving the Bucs way too much time to set up their plays. Running back Doug Martin has also looked impressive. This day may be over before it even got started.
