Deandre Hopkins was targeted double-digit times, the kicker didn’t miss, and the defense pinned back their ears and had a day.
When it was all said and done, the Arizona Cardinals snapped their three-game losing streak, beating the New York Giants in convincing fashion 26-7.
The Arizona defense sacked Giant quarterback Daniel Jones eight times(Haason Reddick with a franchise record 5 sacks).
The party started with linebacker Marcus Golden, a former Giant, who strip sacked Jones in the first quarter. The Giants stuck with Jones at quarterback for most of the game, even though he appeared to be favoring an ankle injury early in the fourth quarter.
In the battle of field possession, the Cardinals dominance on defense set up the offense to start four drives in New York territory. After questions of chemistry issues between Hopkins and Kyler Murray after last week’s loss to the Rams, the two hooked up 8 times for 125 yards.
Kicker Mike Nugent was a perfect 4-4 in field goal attempts, replacing the injured Zane Gonzalez.
The Cardinals return home next Sunday to face the Philadelphia Eagles.
