Cardinals stop Jaguars’ one-game win streak


Maybe it’s conditional, but the Cardinals are on a bit of a run, even if they can’t run.

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw for 419 yards and two touchdowns, and they beat the Jaguars 27-14 for their third straight win, improving to 6-4. They did it despite a rushing attack that managed just 14 yards (losing the last 3 by taking knees).

The most impressive of the passing yards came 91 at a time, with wide receiver Michael Floyd breaking tackles en route to the long score in the third quarter, which pushed the visitors comfortably ahead.

Palmer finished 30-of-42 passing, with a 119.0 rating. That made him the first Arizona quarterback to top the 400-yard mark since Kurt Warner in 2008.

The Jaguars lost steam after scoring a pair of first-half touchdowns, their first as the home team in North America this season. But a combination of their own issues and the Cardinals playing stingy defense dropped them to 1-9 on the season.

    Tried to warn people in the offseason about this team. Also, with Detroit doing their thing today, don’t forget that Arizona holds the tie breaker over them if they don’t win the NFC North and the Panthers if they don’t win the NFC South as well if they all have the same record.

    ‘Carson’s last 3 week’s QB rating is the result of improved play by the O/L.

    This season almost has the same vibe as the SB run in 2008. They snuck up on teams and nobody expected them to make the playoffs. Anything can happen in the playoffs, and it did. Hopefully history will repeat itself, except “the catch”, damn you Santonio.
