With two game in the books, the Cardinals’ defense is turning into a cohesive unit, ready for a prime time
It’s been a sluggish start for the Cardinals on defense, but things came together after they stole a win in Indianapolis. When it mattered, the defense made its stops and Tyrann Mathieu came away with the play of the game in overtime.
The Cardinals avoided a 0-2 record to start the season — and all is well in the desert.
Facing a Colts team with no Andrew Luck, the Cardinals found themselves with dealing with Jacoby Brissett. He finished the day 20-of-37 for 216 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT and a passer rating of 60.2. Brissett was also sacked 4 times — two of which courtesy of Chandler Jones.
I’d say James Bettcher had a much better game plan this time around.
