The Arizona Cardinals are the most surprising team in the National Football League. At 4-0, Arizona is one of just three teams to remain undefeated—joining Atlanta and Houston. And on Sunday, they stayed unbeaten by taking Miami to overtime and cashing in on a Jay Feely field goal. The skinny, from Pro Football Talk:
Overtime was unkind again to the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins lost in the fifth quarter by three points for the second straight win when Jay Feely’s 46-yard field goal sailed through the uprights. It was the second Arizona possession of overtime as the Dolphins forced them to go three-and-out after receiving the kickoff and then moved the ball near midfield. But Ryan Tannehill threw an interception to Kerry Rhodes and Kevin Kolb hit Andre Robertswith a key third-down conversion to get the Cardinals to 4-0 on the season…Kolb didn’t fare too badly on the individual glory side of things either. He wound up with 324 passing yards on the day and threw three touchdowns to help overcome two interceptions and some slow decisions and poor blocking that helped Wake and his mates rack up eight sacks over the course of the game. Roberts finished the day with 118 yards and two scores and the Cardinals showed an ability to come from behind twice in a game that could have easily gotten away from them. It didn’t, though, and they remain all by themselves in first place in the NFC West.
