Default Cardinals had 13 straight drives of 4 or fewer plays.

15	4	4:33	CRD 20	3	1:05	-1	Punt
yeah, the two TD's included in this kind of suck, but overall, this is damn impressive. 11 forced punts - you have to go back to 2000 to find any team with 12 in a game.

Hard to fault the D for the drive that started on the 5 yard line...

Yes. Really, there was only ONE bad defensive drive. I hope that kind of effort keeps up...

honestly, I'm cool with opposition drives stalling out and forced FG's. I don't think our D gave up any bad defensive drives - they allowed one bad play the whole game, IMO - the long Ellington TD. outside of that single play, the D played an excellent game.

Trevathan back really helped, he wears the mic and I think the D missed that leader in the middle with him gone. The defensive line looked good too and the reemergence of Von Miller can not be overstated, having that disruptive element on every play is invaluable.

I heard they would have been retroactively rewarded superbowls 41, 23, 6, and 11 due to all the touchdowns they would have had in this game...in the second half.

You put an even BETTER spin, on it. Yes, it was only one bad play. I was pretty happy with our near-flawless defensive effort...

Defense was finally consistent in this game. However, ARI was complicit with more than a few poor WR plays and having to play Logan Thomas for most of the second half. Damn, they looked like the chiefs defense against 2cd and 3rd stringers last year

The defense should do well against the struggling Jets this week, but then things get interesting, with the 49ers, Chargers and Patriots on tap.

To no one's surprise, Denver faces New England on the road .... again. This will be the third year in a row that the Pats get to host Denver in the regular season.

as long as we host them in the playoffs, I'm ok with that.

Awesome to see but given the QB situation AZ has had to deal with I can't be too amazed by it.
