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.
