GLENDALE, Az. -- Somebody had to finally win a game. The Cardinals and Lions entered Sunday's matchup at University of Phoenix Stadium having lost a combined 14 consecutive games -- nine by Arizona and five by Detroit. By forcing four turnovers and scoring off each of them, the Cardinals finally ended their miserable skid, beating the Lions 38-10 to snap their longest losing streak since 1944 when they shared the season playing with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Arizona (5-9) only generated 195 yards on offense, but the defense made several big plays, including intercepting quarterback Matthew Stafford three times and returning two of them back for touchdowns. Safety Rashad Johnson returned a second-quarter pick 53 yards for a score and cornerback Greg Toler returned one in the fourth quarter that went for 102 yards -- the longest in Cardinals' history. Stafford finished the game completing 24 of 50 passes for 246 yards. It was his second-lowest passing game of the season...
BEST OF MAXIM
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford got in some cornerback drills Sunday. Following two picks, Stafford had to turn and run hard in the opposite direction to try to prevent interception returns for touchdowns.
He failed twice. The Lions gave up two pick-sixes in the 38-10 drubbing. The performance can be summed up in two pictures – Stafford trying to fight off a herd of Cards’...
With merely 61 receptions for 674 yards and 4 touchdowns through 14 weeks, All-Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is on pace for his worst season since his rookie year.His father, sportswriter Larry Fitzgerald Sr., tweeted his disgust with the state of the Arizona Cardinals after a 58-0 spirit-crushing loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Fitzgerald Jr. has always been too classy to air...
According to Adam Green of Arizonasports.com, the Cardinals may wish to cut ties with QB Kevin Kolb following the 2012 season.
Green sites durability as the main reason that the move is likely to happen.
“The passer’s career in the desert has been marred by injuries, and by the time the season comes to a close Kolb will have played in just 15 of a possible 32 games for the team...
The Detroit Lions continue to be one of the most confounding teams in the NFL during the 2012 regular season.A trendy pre-season pick for the playoffs, a team seemingly loaded with talent, but yet an utter disappointment on the field during the regular season. Sunday’s loss to the hapless Arizona Cardinals, marked the sixth regular season loss in a row for the Lions and some serious...

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz admitted Monday that his team's season has ''gone off the rails'' and the progress made during last year's run to the playoffs has become a distant memory.
Schwartz, who has lost at least 10 games in three of his four seasons as Lions' coach, said the blame for the team's unfulfilled 2012 expectations rests entirely...
GLENDALE, Ariz. The Cardinals' losing streak was like a 12-month pregnancy. It lingered far too long, and once it crossed a certain threshold, nobody cared about beauty any more. All that mattered was deliverance from the pain.
Maybe that's why safety Adrian Wilson was so emotional when he reached the podium at the postgame press conference Sunday following the Cardinals...
There are 130 days until the NFL Draft.
Not much else to look forward to at this point for the Detroit Lions.
When you lose to one of the laughingstocks of the NFL, you become the laughingstock, dont you?
On Sunday, the Lions became just that again with a 38-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, who were on a nine-game losing streak and hadnt won since Sept. 30.
The bumbling Lions...

The Detroit Lions suffered their ugliest loss of the season on Sunday afternoon, getting blown out 38-10 by the equally hapless Arizona Cardinals. Despite that, Jim Schwartz kept things as close to business as usual as he could in his shortened Monday presser, and admitted he’s sharing a big responsibility for his team’s multitude of...
Yesterday, the Arizona Cardinals ended a nine-game losing streak when they beat the Detroit Lions 38-10. For the Lions, the loss puts them at 4-10 and solidly in last place in the NFC North. A year after finally making the playoffs, the Lions are right back where they were for the last 10 years.And this places Jim Schwartz in the cross hairs. Last season, the Lions finished 10-6...
After seemingly getting healthy the past couple of weeks the Lions have once again hit the injury snag.
Heading into Week 15 the Lions look to be without defensive tackle Nick Fairley (shoulder) and Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) which could come to the delight of some Lions fans.
Safety Louis Delmas (knee) also enters the week questionable after having a limited practice Thursday and...
