After falling behind 17-13 in the third quarter, the Cardinals have responded with three straight touchdowns to take control against the Titans.
Antoine Cason’s 20-yard interception return extended Arizona’s lead to 34-17 with a little more than six minutes left in Nashville.
Cason’s touchdown came 31 seconds after Rashard Mendenhall’s second TD run of the game gave Arizona a 27-17 fourth-quarter lead. Mendenhall’s score capped a 11-play, 60-yard drive that took 5:07 off the clock.
The Titans took a 17-13 third-quarter lead after engineering a 15-play, 74-yard march ending in a one-yard Delanie Walker touchdown catch a little more than halfway through the period. On the Titans’ TD drive, the Arizona defense was penalized four times, two of which came on third downs.
However, the Cardinals’ responded with a scoring drive of their own, with Carson Palmer hitting Jake Ballard for a six-yard TD catch with 2:20 left in the third quarter.
Since then, it’s been all Cardinals, who have gotten a big day from rookie tailback Andre Ellington (153 combined yards).
