From the jaws of victory, the Arizona Cardinals grabbed a defeat on Sunday afternoon at State Farm Stadium
There are so many things that went wrong on Sunday that only the final score should tell the whole story. The Arizona Cardinals really had no business losing to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday but they made it their business.
So many things went wrong, although a few things did go right. Not enough things went right down the stretch and when things seemed to be going right, it was overturned quickly by something that didn’t.
The Cardinals looked great on two of their first three drives. It looked like they were on their way to maybe their biggest scoring day of the season.
However like past games where we thought the same thing, the Cardinals couldn’t get much of anything done after the first quarter. The second and third quarters were just awful.
The fourth quarter didn’t start well but they did manage to regain the lead at 21-20 after falling behind 20-14. But as usual, the Cardinals looked good one quarter and then not the next. We saw it against the Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, the list goes on and on.
