Cards Finally Get One

By Zack Cimini

It took the Cardinals the same amount of games to win a game, as it took the Patriots to lose a game at 19. It?s an amazing stat but it?s now all in the past because the Cardinals road woes should never get past four or five games as long as they are under Dennis Green. The Cardinals got their first road victory thanks to a last minute touchdown catch by Larry Fitzgerald to make the score 24-23.

Miami did all they could do, and even had a great day offensively. They had over 400 yards total offense, but killed themselves with twenty one penalties. The biggest was a Jason Taylor penalty after he kicked the football in rage, after a questionable late hit call on Patrick Surtain. The two penalties moved the ball down to the Miami sixteen, and two plays later Emmitt Smith ran in for a five yard touchdown.

How many times this year is Miami?s offense going to give up a touchdown? No wonder why the Dolphins defense is more and more susceptible every week. AJ Feeley was forced to come in after Jay Fiedler got hurt, and of course he threw another touchdown to the other team. It?s happened at least five times this season, and has killed Miami in close games.The Cardinals still aren?t mathematically out of the hunt in their division, as they are only two games back from the St. Louis Rams. One thing is for sure the only team that is going to the playoffs in this division, is going to be the division winner.
