Arizona Cardinals: Top 10 plays of the year
By Scott Allen
5. J.J. Nelson’s 64-yard touchdown catch against the Cincinnati Bengals
Another lifeless first half for the Cardinals. They actually trailed this one at halftime 14-7 and this one was in front of the entire nation on Sunday Night Football. However Carson Palmer’s 64-yard touchdown pass to J.J. Nelson early in the third quarter sparked momentum to give the Cardinals a 28-14 lead by the end of the third quarter.
What was impressive with this play was Nelson cutting through defenders on a cross pattern to the right side and then beating defenders down the sideline. He was caught on the foot by Benglas safety Reggie Nelson at the two yard line but managed to dive into the end zone for the game-tying score, making it a 14-14 game.
