The Arizona Cardinals landed in Baltimore ready to take on the Ravens. In the first half, the Cardinals completed key plays on offense and dialed up atypical pressure on the Ravens offense. Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals special teams almost took the heart out of the Ravens with a game-changing punt return for touchdown.
The Ravens, however, are the ones that walked away with a victory off the foot of kicker Billy Cundiff, who won the game for Baltimore with a last-second field goal (pictured above).
Even though it came up short, with this game Arizona found its identity and, as I reported earlier in the week, looks like a team that will have a solid second half of the season.
For the first six weeks of the season, the Cardinals may have hidden their report card from their parents; this week, it goes on the fridge.
