The catch was Brown’s third of the game on four targets. He also caught a 14-yard pass from quarterback Kyler Murray on second-and-12 to continue the touchdown drive.
The Cardinals needed the offensive boost after getting shut out in the first quarter for the fifth straight game this year.
They moved the ball again toward the end of the first half, thanks in part to a successful fake punt conversion in which a direct snap went to running back Darrel Williams.
