Arizona Cardinals vs Houston Texans: Good, bad, ugly
You can’t talk about this game good or bad without discussing Baker first. Baker had himself a very nice day.
Without him, you wonder where this game would have ended. Baker had 13 tackles. He had a sack, a forced fumble and a recovered fumble. He also played well on special teams.
Baker has really blossomed into a great talent probably sooner than many felt he would have. Remember, he missed time in OTA’s and early on in offseason program because of school.
Fitz was at it again. Just days removed from a one-year contract extension, Fitz caught nine passes for 91-yards. He also had a touchdown.
His touchdown came after being shown on the sidelines having his hand looked at by medical personnel. He was fine.
He moved to fifth place on the all-time receiving yards list in the NFL. If he sticks around for another season, you have to wonder just how far he can rise?
Despite his two interceptions, he belongs here. He was forced into throwing situations and one of the interceptions was a fight for the ball.
However Gabbert went 22-34 for 257-yards. He had three touchdown passes. That believe it or not was a career-high.
His play certainly deserves a further look as the Cardinals evaluate the future of the quarterback position after the post-Carson Palmer era.
It would be a mistake not to mention this young man. Having been inactive the last four weeks, Seals-Jones got his chance on Sunday.
He came through with his first three NFL receptions. The last two were touchdowns, including a very nice 20-yard reception made up high and scooting between two Texans defenders.
