The Cardinals may not be very good this season, but they’re particularly bad to start games so far this season.
Already trailing 19-0 at halftime against the Rams, they’re now operating with a combined deficit of 40-0 in the first halves of games this year.
Washington took a 21-0 lead into halftime last week, scoring all those points in the second quarter. The Rams likewise took the first quarter off before dropping 19 on them (without a kicker).
The Cards managed just two first downs in the first half and haven’t crossed midfield, looking particularly anemic before starting the second half with a three-and-out.
