Arizona Cardinals Lose To Falcons 29-18


The Arizona Cardinals lose to the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome on Sunday 29-18.

Nothing wrong with losing a game, but how you loss a game is what can be frustrating for fans. The Cardinals are a completely different team since the loss of their starting quarterback Carson Palmer. The offense cannot score touchdowns, the special teams cannot stop anyone nor generate any yards.

The next man up is starting to run out, and the season of injuries is catching up to them. As the team lost three more key players Andre Ellington, Paul Fanaika,Tyrann Mathieu all left the game with injuries. The running game gained only 35 yards on the ground and the defense gave up its first 100 yards to an opposing running back as a result of the injuries.

The Cards looked very disinterested in this game as though the Falcons would come and play like their record would indicate. The Falcons jumped the gun and came out swinging and left the Cards in shell shock taking a 17-0 lead in the first quarter.

Then a big 88 yard interception return for a touchdown by safety Rashad Johnson brought the Cards to the fight.

But the inept offense could not stay on the field as Drew Stanton continues to throw the ball inaccurate at crucial times in the game, and the team not able to sustain drives.

The Cardinals are still in first place, but that performance would say it wont be to long before they are not.
