Carson Palmer threw three interceptions, and looked dreadful for most of the game.
And still won, because the other team was even more dreadful.
The Cardinals somehow or another managed to beat the Panthers 22-6 Sunday, with Rashard Mendenhall scoring a 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to put his team ahead for good to improve to 3-2.
As bad as Palmer was, Cam Newton was worse. He threw three picks, fumbled, and was sacked seven times as the Cardinals disrupted everything they tried to do offensively throughout the second half. And after a first half defined by missed opportunities and field goals, the Panthers didn’t have much margin of error after all the dropped passes and penalties.
The loss drops the Panthers to 1-3, and makes it seem like a hundred years ago when they beat the Giants 38-0 (it was actually two weeks ago, before their bye). And that lone win looks much different the more you watch the 0-5 Giants flail about helplessly.
