Early in the first quarter against the Dallas Cowboys, the Arizona Cardinals have just five yards on offense. And they lead 14-0.
Both of the Cardinals’ touchdowns have come in the form of interception returns for touchdowns.
On the Cowboys’ first offensive drive, quarterback Jon Kitna threw a pass along the left sideline, intended for receiver Miles Austin. But Austin fell, and Cardinals cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie grabbed the pass and ran 32 yards to the end zone.
On the Cowboys’ next possession, Kitna went to the right side, to Roy Williams, who got a hand on the ball but couldn’t bring it in. Gregory Toler grabbed it for the Cardinals and ran 66 yards for a touchdown.
Getting to play against Austin and Williams has been a great Christmas present for the Cardinals’ secondary.
UPDATE: At halftime, the Cardinals have extended the lead to 21-10.
