In the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carson Palmer didn`t team up with Larry Fitzgeral to score the most points, he didn`t even score the most with another receiver. He did`nt hand the ball off to one of the back for them to be the leading scorer, nope, the game`s leading scorer was none other the Jay Feely.
Granted, it was the Cardinals` D holding in there to let Tampa`s offense to score only ten points and making the stops and causing turnovers at the end of the game to take the lead. Thanks to Patrick Peterson, he was the reason the Cardinals were able to get in place to put points up on the board.
Yes Palmer connected to Fitz to score a touchdown and put up six, but it was Feely who scored six points with his two field goals and the extra point putting him at seven points scored. If you remove Feely`s points, the Cardinals would have lost the game by four points. There at the end, it was a team effort pulling together to win the game, but Feely had the most points.
So with all that being said, in my mind it was Jay Feely who won the game with the help the defense, so to that I say, thanks Feely for making the Cardinals 2-2.
