The Arizona Cardinals played the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night and even though they lost, I saw good things from the offense. Yes Carson Palmer threw two interceptions. One was not his fault and the second was a bone-headed throw.
The offense line did allow seven sacks, but the Seahawks` defense is as strong as they come. Earl Watford was inactive and that threw in a monkey wrench with the line. Nate Potter stepped in and I believe it caused some meshing problems, but I feel they did an alright job against that defense.
Palmer completed 30 passes out of his 45 throws and gained 258 yards. For being under pressure for most of the night, he did an awesome job. I have no complaints besides his last interception that he threw in the third, but my hat goes off to him.
Hopefully Thursday night was a turning point for this offense. I figured after hearing that Bruce Arians runs a simple playbook that they would get thing together quickly. Sometimes things take a little longer to click.
I know that this team can play with the best in this league and after a short week and them playing as they did against the Seahawks, I feel that they just might start getting things turned around and start scoring points.
