It hasn’t been pretty, but the Arizona Cardinals return home with a win and a share of first-place in the NFC West after testing the league’s new overtime rules in a victory over the Colts. Counting the final two preseason games, the Cards have played four straight on the road and will get an extra day off before their Week 3 Monday Night Football encounter with the Dallas Cowboys.
Carson Palmer and the Cards’ offense again struggled without David Johnson, but the veteran QB rallied his team in the fourth quarter to pull out the win against the Colts. Playing behind an offensive line that was missing the starting left side, the Cards managed just three points through the first three quarters and looked poised to drop its second straight. That’s when Palmer and the boys came alive. He converted a critical third-and-20 with a 22-yard strike to Jaron Brown and hit J.J. Nelson for a 45-yard touchdown on the next play. Palmer orchestrated a 40-yard drive on the next series for the game-tying field goal.
The defense kept the game close giving the Cards a chance for the victory. They didn’t allow the Colts to chew up clock in the fourth quarter, giving up 30 yards and one first down on Indy’s last three drives in regulation. Tyrann Mathieu supplied the big play in overtime, picking off a pass to set up Phil Dawson’s game-winning field goal.

The Cardinals never led until Dawson’s game-winning overtime kick and it wasn’t enough to cover the spread as the Cards fell to 0-2 ATS. Palmer led a dramatic comeback in the fourth quarter tossing a touchdown pass and leading the team to a tying field goal. The Cards had a chance to win in regulation, but Dawson missed a 42-yard try, however he was bailed out by the defense and got another chance in OT, which he capitalized on.

ATS Result: Lions +2.5
Over/Under Total Result: Over 48.5
Justin Bethel intercepted Matthew Stafford’s first pass and returned in 82-yards for a touchdown and the Cards added a field goal for 10-0 first quarter lead. Williams added a third quarter touchdown run to build the advantage to 17-9 before the roof caved in. Detroit scored on three straight possessions and thwarted any Arizona comeback attempt by picking off a Palmer offering and returning it for score to seal the deal with just over four minutes left.
Preseason Record: 2-3
ATS Record: 2-3
Over/Under Total Record: 2-3
The last time the Cards played Detroit they knocked Matthew Stafford out of the game. Not physically, Stafford was fine, but his ego was crushed after the Cards picked him off three times. And the Cards have never lost to the man who just became the game’s highest paid player. The Cards have won all four meetings in which Stafford started and have won seven straight overall in the series.
