Cardinals lean on their old guys for big win

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

The old guys can still get it done, and the Cardinals have a new life. With big games from 32-year-old running back Adrian Peterson and 34-year-old Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals took a closer-than-it-had-to-be 38-33 win over the Buccaneers to improve to 3-3. Peterson ran 26 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns, Fitzgerald caught 10 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown, and the Cardinals built enough of a lead to hang onto a weird Bucs comeback.

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited University of Phoenix Stadium last season in the second game of the year, they were greeted with a kick to the teeth by the Arizona Cardinals in the form of a 40-7 rout that led to a three-game losing streak that ultimately cost them a shot at making the playoffs. "They just physically got after us and we turned it over way too many times," Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter recalled. When the Cardinals (2-3) and Buccaneers (2-2) line up on Sunday, last year will immediately become a distant memory.

Get your popcorn ready: The Mitch Trubisky-Tanner Gentry connection is back

The Bears did something to patch up part of that problem on Wednesday.
