Cardinals 35, Bengals 27
The 3 INTs by Antrel Rolle propelled the Cardinals to a much needed on-the-road victory to keep them close in the NFC West.
Kurt Warner showed no signs of his lingering elbow injury, tossing a pair of TDS to Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. But, once again, it was the Arizona defense who won this game. Carson Palmer tossed a career-high 4 INTs, 3 to Rolle and one to Karlos Dansby (last week’s NFC Defensive Player of the Week), plus a recovered fumble of Chad Johnson by Terrence Holt, upping the turnovers by Cincinnati to 5.
Despite a whopping 11 penalties for 101 yds and time of possession under 30 minutes (27:33), when all was said and done, the Cardinals walked away with the W and a 5-5 record, currently a half-game behind division-leading Seattle, who plays Chicago this week.
