The Cardinals couldn’t get out of their own way on Sunday. They had horrible penalties in the fourth quarter as they tried to salt the game away.
Seals-Jones was holding when really he probably didn’t need to be on a 57-yard David Johnson touchdown run. Johnson had already run off one play of 53-yards earlier.
The touchdown would not only have given Johnson 190-yards rushing on the day at the time, it would have given the Cardinals a 28-20 lead and likely win. However, it was all erased and the Cardinals didn’t recover from it.
The Cardinals had seven penalties for 62-yards while the Raiders had just four penalties for 20-yards. The Cardinals were just an undisciplined team at the worst possible time.
