Cardinals getting stingy on defense

The Cardinals’ defense has become very stingy. Hasn’t allowed a touchdown in nine quarters and two games. The franchise hasn’t had a stretch where it didn’t allow a touchdown in two straight games since 1970. That’s a long time ago (and when the NFL game was a completely different animal.) The Cardinals are now fifth in the NFL in scoring defense at 15.7 points a game and...

Bruce Arians wants to ban defenders leaping on FG tries

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has had enough of the practice of defenders jumping over the offensive line to try to block field goal attempts. His problem with the practice isn’t simply because his team was perhaps wrongly victimized for it on Sunday night, but because he considers it dangerous and bad for football. “The Competition Committee went through that play and...

Prior to Monday Night’s game between the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos, some members of ESPN’s crew decided to take the field and try some field goals.

Cardinals K Chandler Catanzaro: ‘No excuse’ for OT miss

Sunday night's game between the Cardinals and Seahawks was pretty much a stinkfest, but that won't stop Arizona head coach Bruce Arians from complaining about a missed call.

WATCH: Cardinals, Seahawks trade missed chip shot OT field goals in worst game ever

Oh my god. The Cardinals-Seahawks Sunday Night Football game was the worst football game I’ve ever seen. Not just the worst NFL game. The worst FOOTBALL game. At any level. It ended, in a tie, deservedly so. Even if the final score said one team had more points, there were no winners. So it’s only fair it ends in a tie. And not even a tie of double-digit points. A 6-6 tie....

McDonough rips NFL officiating, blames it for ratings decline

The Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets did not exactly put on a great show Monday night, and the officiating didn’t help.
