Back to the offensive line. In addition to their penalties, they couldn’t keep Palmer off his back. They allowed eight sacks, most Palmer has been sacked in one game in his long career.
Then they could not open any running lanes for running back David Johnson. He carried the ball 10 times for just 24 yards. That meant the Cardinals had to throw the ball most of the afternoon.
Earl Watford and D.J. Humphries looked lost most of the afternoon. On one sack, Watford blocked with one hand on his guy he was responsible for then looked back to see another guy go around him, forgetting about his own guy.
Jared Veldheer committed a un-timely illegal procedure penalty and Mike Iupati had a hold called on him in the midst of Palmer being sacked. The Cardinals may want to look at changes on the line schematically. What they had set up on Sunday didn’t work out at all.
