The Big Red Wolf Report: After Lions, before Saints

Sep 20, 2013, 6:45 PM | Updated: Sep 21, 2013, 2:07 am

The Arizona Cardinals beat the Detroit Lions 25-21 last week to improve to 1-1 on the season. Big Red scored nine points in the fourth quarter and did not allow the Lions offense to score in the second half. It was the definition of winning a game late by making more plays than the opponent.

Now the Cards are preparing for their toughest test of the early season, the 2-0 New Orleans Saints.

Running the ball well against the Saints will be critical. The Saints struggle to stop the run and, on paper, this is one area where the Cards can exploit defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s unit.
