Comments Share 5:45 left in second quarterLions convert on a third down play with a reception by Reggie Bush, who is down on the ground after the tackle. The former Heisman Trophy winner* was on the field for a bit but ended up walking off. Lions have the ball at their own 41. 1:59 left in fourth quarterKickoff goes out of the end zone, Lions have it at their 20. This place is getting loud…first time that’s happened in a while. 10:33 left in third quarterOK, maybe you don’t get everything you ask for. The Cards go basically nowhere, and a third down pass to Floyd comes up short of the end zone when Fitzgerald failed to make a block. Feely comes on for a 23-yard field goal, and while points are nice, Arizona still trails 14-13. Missed a golden opportunity there. Top Stories 10:20 left in second quarterHis name is Megatron, folks. Matt Stafford throws a quick pass to Calvin Johnson, who takes the ball 72 yards for a touchdown. Karlos Dansby nearly knocked the ball down (or even picked it off), but the ball made it through to the receiver. Not much you can do about that, folks. Guy is the best in the business for a reason.7-3 visitors. 11:44 left in second quarterSome confusion on the kickoff as Spurlock nearly takes the ball out of the end zone before deciding it’d be best to stay put. The refs rule it a touchback, and it’s probably the right call. 11:44 left in second quarterDrive stalls there, but Arizona still scores some points by way of a 47-yard Jay Feely field goal for the 3-0 lead.Cards up, but certainly not in control. 4:14 left in third quarterWell that was an interesting drive. Cardinals move down the field with some good runs and good passes, one of which was from Patrick Peterson to Kerry Taylor. Besides the fact that it appears Peterson would have been a better option than anyone the Cardinals used at QB last season, the most disappointing thing is Arizona had to settle for another field goal. Feely boots it through, but they’re still down 21-16. 1:55 left in second quarterAnd just like that, a three-yard toss to Johnson in the corner of the end zone. Excellent route, great throw, and Lions regain the lead. Congrats to anyone who had the foresight to put Calvin Johnson in their fantasy lineups today. Brilliant! End of first quarterA shifty run by Reggie Bush goes for three and that’s where we’ll pick up when play resumes. Cardinals D with an excellent chance to force a punt here, and if it does so the offense will have good field position. As it is, this first quarter was a little strange. No one on either team looked particularly great, but no one looked really bad, either.The Cards can take solace in the fact that Palmer has looked pretty good, and the Lions can feel good about how they’ve moved the ball. The result of it all is a 0-0 score, though, so take it for what it’s worth. 1:09 left in fourth quarterLions come up short on the pass as Tyrann Mathieu makes a great tackle, and just like that this one will go to the Cardinals. It’s all victory formation from here. Final score: Arizona 25, Detroit 21. Pretty fun game. 7:32 left in second quarterThey responded very nicely, thank you very much.Some good runs from Mendenhall and a great throw from Palmer to Fitz was followed up by an even better throw on a wheel route to Andre Ellington. You know, a play you may remember from an incomplete pass on 3rd and 2 last week in St. Louis. This one goes for a 36-yard TD, and the Cards are back on top. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 1:29 left in third quarterCardinals get their first third-down conversion by way of a penalty that just so happened to wipe out a sack/fumble. Palmer then hits Kerry Taylor with a ball down the field for a good gain, and when you add another 15 yards due to a personal foul on Detroit, Arizona is back in business. 12:41 left in first quarterD looks good, and survives a well-designed Detroit screen on third and long to force a punt. Patrick Peterson returns it to the Arizona 21, which is where we get our first look at the offense. And by the way, Fitz is playing, though with his injury who knows for how long and how effective. 15:00 left in first quarterCardinals kick off to start, with Jay Feely sending it to the end zone.Lions start at their own 20, we get an early look art at Arizona’s D against one of the league’s better offenses. 14:17 left in fourth quarterCards don’t go much further, as a third down play fails (shocking) to pick up the first. Feely is brought on for a field goal, which he makes from 33-yards out. 21-19 Lions. 7:08 left in fourth quarterCardinals win the challenge and get the first down. The drive continues… 8:43 left in fourth quarterDefense holds the Lions to a field goal attempt, which is blocked by Justin Bethel. Ronald Talley recovers the ball and takes it to the Arizona 42. Kind of a big series coming up here. 10:20 left in second quarterKickoff sails out of the end zone. Cards have it at their own 20, let’s see how they respond. 12:43 left in third quarterCards gain some yardage on Mendenhall runs, but drive stalls and they are forced to punt. Spurlock runs backwards on the return and is downed at the Lions’ six. Would be a good time for the D to force a turnover, or at least a three-and-out. 15:00 left in third quarterAkers’ kick is a touchback, and the Cards will start at their 20. Some interesting first half stats:Palmer: 12-of-17 for 165 yards and a TDMendenhall: Four carries, 25 yards along with two receptions for 28 yardsEight different Cards receivers caught a passOn the Lions’ side:Stafford: 16-of-20 for 210 yards and two TDsMegatron: Four receptions for 96 yards and two TDsBush: Eight carries for 18 yards 3:28 left in first quarterLions pick up some yardage but the defense holds. The Lions brought out David Akers for a 52-yard field goal, which he pushed left. However, the Cards were flagged for ‘running into the kicker’, which gave the veteran another shot, this time from 47-yards out.He pushed it right. Who needs consistency, anyway?So, yards were gained, but no points scored, and the Cards go back on offense at their own 37.
