Found September 17, 2012 on NESN.com:
Larry Fitzgerald had himself a nice little Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals wide receiver only had one catch for four yards, but his club improved its record to 2-0 with an upset of the Patriots in New England. Fitzgerald was understandably excited to come away with the win, but he apparently had bigger things on his mind following the upset win. You see, the Boardwalk Empire season premiere was Sunday night. And while winning NFL teams may be cool and all, it obviously pales in comparison to an HBO miniseries. Have you ever watched Sunday night programming on HBO? It's spectacular....

Arizona Cardinals: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#23)

Last week: 23 (+7) Record: 2-0 The Cardinals are one of only 6 undefeated teams left in the NFL, but they’re by far the weakest of the bunch. They’ve been outgained in each of their first 2 games, but won anyway, and have a negative yards per play differential and are tied with Jacksonville for the worst yards per play rate at 4.2. They’ve got a nice defense, but I still don’t...

Patriots Pass Defense Shuts Down Larry Fitzgerald, Gives Silver Lining in Heartbreaking Loss

Despite the Patriots loss to the Cardinals, they played a phenomenal game on defense. New England’s defense allowed 245 total yards on offense, and most importantly, held All-Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to just one reception for four yards on five targets. The Patriots had just three cornerbacks out on defense for the entire game, which did not include last year's second...

Jay Feely Freaks Out On Sideline

The 4th quarter of the Arizona Cardinals 20-18 victory over the New England Patriots provided a lot of dramatics – a missed game-winning field goal, touchdown called back, fumble, and a failed 2-point conversion. Prior to the two-minute warning, the Patriots kicked off to Cardinals RB Larod Stephens-Howling who settled for a touchback instead of running the ball out of the end...

San Francisco 49ers Flex Muscles; Arizona Cardinals Shock Patriots

Sunday was a dominant day for the formerly pathetic NFC West: the 49ers re-asserted themselves as legit Super Bowl contenders; Sam Bradford outgunned RGIII; the Seahawks dominated Dallas in Seattle; and, oh, the Cardinals shocked the Patriots in New England.

Are the Arizona Cardinals Legit?

The Arizona Cardinals vs. the New England Patriots in Foxborough. If you saw this game on the NFL schedule, then it’s pretty obvious who you would expect to come out with the victory.  Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have had a tendency over the past decade to win the games that they were “supposed” to win.  If you’re the gambling type, or you’re in any type of...

Cardinals stun the nation with a win in New England

The Cardinals suddenly look like a real football team, and that's thanks in no small part to an under appreciated defensive unit that held the Patriots to just 18 points in a stunning victory against the New England Patriots. Oddly enough, the Cardinals held the lead most of the game, but in classic Tom Brady fashion, the Patriots made a run to tie the game late....

Arizona has won 9 of 11 after upset at New England

The day-after enthusiasm for one of the Arizona Cardinals' biggest road victories ever was subdued at team headquarters. The players and their coach understand too well how close that one was, but the 20-18 triumph at New England, secured when the Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski missed a 42-yard field goal with one second to play, fits a pattern for this resurgent Arizona franchise...

Arizona Cardinals pull out another thrilling victory

Another week, another heart-stopping victory for the Cardinals.

Kolb throws, runs for TDs, Cards top Pats

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Backup quarterback Kevin Kolb threw for one touchdown and ran for another, Stephen Gostkowski missed a potential winning field goal in the final seconds, and the Arizona Cardinals upset the New England Patriots 20-18 on Sunday. The Patriots took over when Vince Wilfork recovered a fumble at the Cardinals 30-yard line with 1:01 left. A 30-yard run into the...

Leach: Youth a factor with inconsistency

WASHINGTON STATE COACH Mike Leach generally has an interesting way of stating his thoughts. Sometimes that requires clarification. Leach was asked about his “tent over circus” statement, his thoughts on the development of a defensive lineman and, of course, the Pac-12 story of the week – injuries – during Tuesday’s Pac-12 coaches conference call.

Arizona Cardinals vs. New England Patriots: Hero and Zero of Game

Where do I even begin? There was not a whole lot that went as expected in this contest between the Patriots and the Cardinals in Foxborough Mass.I wanted to come out of this with a clear-cut hero on one side (the Patriots) and an equally clear-cut zero on the other side (the Cardinals).The spread on the game was almost two full touchdowns for the Brady-led Pats and the prevailing...

2-0? Yes, 2-0. On to Arizona.

    We are witnessing the first 2-0 start since 2004, two outstanding defensive displays, and the ablility to win games late. Except for turnovers and penalties, our Philadelphia Eagles gave us reasons for optimism against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. We saw big time use of the tight end Brent Celek, a balanced run and passing attack, sharp passing by Michael Vick, and solid...
