Third down efficiency
It got progressively worse as the game wore on, however they started 4-5 on third down conversions on Sunday. They ended up 9-17 on the afternoon.
Any day they can finish over 50 percent on third down conversions has to be considered a win by fans. The Cardinals have had a lot of issues over the past couple of seasons continuing drives.
A lot of previous third down failures was the norm, a trend that had continued into the start of the 2019 season. They were only 5 of their last 12 third down attempts but it was still something overall they can take as a positive into their matchup against the Seattle Seahawks next week.
The Seahawks held the New Orleans Saints to 3-11 on third down conversions on Sunday even though they ended up losing 33-27. Their two previous opponents also were not very good on third down.
The Cincinnati Bengals were just 6-15 on third downs in week 1 and the Pittsburgh Steelers were also 3-11 on third downs in week 2 against the Seahawks. This should be a point of emphasis this week in meetings.
