Carolina Leads a Second Half Comeback for Win
Panthers 27, Cardinals 23

It was not a pretty game for Carolina but they did get the job done winning 27-23 over Arizona. This is a remarkable win because now they sit on top of the NFC South alone. They also proved themselves out there.

Arizona was up 17-3 in the middle of the third quarter when DeAngelo Williams ran for an 18-yard score to keep the game close at 17-10. Then Jake Delhomme threw an 18-yard pass to Steve Smith for the game tying touchdown. Arizona would score again on a touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to Anquan Boldin but miss the PAT to go up 23-17.

On the ensuing drive Jake Delhomme lead a drive down the field that ended with a 65-yard bomb to Steve Smith to put them up 24-23 after the PAT. Delhomme was 20/28 with 248 yards and two touchdown passes. Steve Smith had five receptions for 117 yards and two scores.

John Kasay would seal the deal in the fourth with a 50-yard field goal.

Anquan Boldin started his comeback trail with 30 yards rushing and 63 yards receiving with two touchdowns. Kurt Warner 381 yards passing, a touchdown, and an interception to Jon Beason.
