The Arizona Cardinals had some bright spots on Sunday but had enough mistakes to keep themselves from victory
The Arizona Cardinals were able to move the ball on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. That’s the good news. The bad news? You can’t win if you are going to shoot yourself in the foot while doing it.
For the Cardinals, they did just that on Sunday in their 30-24 loss to the Vikings. They played well at times on both sides of the ball. Special teams wasn’t very special on Sunday. A couple of mistakes cost the Cardinals the chance at victory.
Although many were very questionable calls, penalties also did not show well for the Cardinals on Sunday. Good teams need to learn how to overcome bad calls. The Cardinals could not do that either.
In the end, once again the bad outweighed the good. It will always be that way if the end result is a loss. This loss sends the Cardinals to 4-5-1 and could possibly put the Cardinals in third place in the NFC West by the end of the day.
