Miami Dolphins vs. Arizona Cardinals: Final Report Card for Arizona

Arizona Cardinals 24, Miami Dolphins 21 (OT)

The Cardinals somehow pulled this game out after quarterback Kevin Kolb threw an inexplicable interception in the end zone while trying to extend a fourth-quarter lead. He threw two picks for the game, but it was his third touchdown pass—the second to wide receiver Andre Roberts— with :22 remaining that sent the game to overtime, giving kicker Jay Feely the opportunity to win yet another game for his team during extra time.

The defense played poorly in the first half, allowing two long scoring drives and three overall.

They stepped it up in the second half, however, creating four turnovers en route to the victory. Because of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill's 26-of-41, 431-yard performance, safety Adrian Wilson led the team with 10 tackles. He also came away with three deflected passes and a sack of Tannehill.

It all adds up to the Cardinals moving to 4-0 for the first time since 1974 (they started 7-0 that year) and remaining all alone in first place, one game ahead of the San Francisco 49ers.

Now we get to the final grades.
