3 game balls for Arizona Cardinals vs New York Giants
By Scott Allen
A number of Arizona Cardinals stepped up in their 27-21 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday
So many Arizona Cardinals came to play and contributed to the 27-21 win on Sunday, their third consecutive win for the first time since 2015. It wasn’t pretty at times, and neither was the weather, but they won and that’s all that matters at the end of the day.
These three players though had the brightest days for the Cardinals in their win. Without these guys, the Cardinals likely do not leave the Big Apple without a victory.
There is no doubt his presence was a difference maker on Sunday. Playing his first game of the season after serving a 6-game suspension, Peterson returned to the starting lineup.
He did not get an interception on Sunday as was predicted before the game but his presence changed the intensity. The Cardinals did get their first interception of the season.
The biggest play however for Peterson and arguably for the Cardinals on Sunday came late in the fourth quarter. Peterson came off his man and sprinted toward New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones for a sack that almost ended the Giants chances on Sunday, save for one more series after the sack.
