Arizona Cardinals vs. New England Patriots: Live Score, Video, and Analysis
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed a 42-yard field goal wide left, and the Arizona Cardinals (2-0) beat the New England Patriots (1-1), 20-18.
Arizona's defense played a near-perfect game considering the opponent, sacking Tom Brady four times—including two from defensive end Calais Campbell. Cornerback Patrick Peterson picked off Brady early on and set the tone for what would be an impressive performance unit-wide all game.
