The Cardinals though have a ton of things to work on. The almost won this just to spite themselves. Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles ran 63-yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter and it appeared it would be a long day.
The Cards defense started out slow but came up huge in the end. They gave up 200 yards in the first half to the Chiefs. However they held them scoreless in the second half after the Cards were trailing 14-6 at halftime.
Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton didn’t play great. At times he threw high and left his receivers out to dry. However he came up with a big touchdown pass to receiver Jaron Brown for 26-yards in the third quarter. Stanton was 15-30 for 239 yards and the touchdown. He officially didn’t throw any interceptions but several could have been picked.
The story though is Williams. The Cardinals hadn’t had a one hundred yard rusher all season and Williams was the least of suspects to break that drought. The Cardinals defensive effort was huge too down the stretch. They recovered a very controversial fumble Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce in the fourth quarter down at the Arizona 20. That was the last threat the Chiefs would be on offense the rest of the day.
