The Arizona Cardinals have their issues to work out, but these things all worked well for them on Sunday
Well, a lot of things for the Arizona Cardinals to work on. However there were a lot of things that helped them get their first win of the season.
It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t pretty. However we should all take it and move on after the Cardinals defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 26-23 in Cincinnati on Sunday. Now it’s on to the Atlanta Falcons at home next Sunday at State Farm Stadium.
The Cardinals have a lot of takeaways both positive and negative. Here we focus on the positive after their first win.
They left a lot of points on the field. The defense it would seem still has a ways to go but the offense put up some good numbers on Sunday.
It’s simple quite frankly. Run the ball successfully and you should win in the NFL. The Cardinals felt a little of that success on Sunday against the Bengals.
The Cardinals ran the ball for 266-yards against a depleted defensive line. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray lead the way with 93-yards rushing.
Running back David Johnson also had a season-high total of 91-yards rushing. Then his backup, Chase Edmonds, had 68-yards rushing. Edmonds total included a 37-yard run for a 4th quarter score.
