Behind Enemy Lines: New Orleans Saints
In their first home game of the season, the Arizona Cardinals were able to provide their fans with a win. Their 25-21 victory over the Detroit Lions got head coach Bruce Arians his first win with the team and was their second solid performance in two weeks to begin the season.
While the offense had trouble executing on third down and in the red zone, the Cardinals’ defense and special teams carried them, highlighted by Justin Bethel’s blocked field goal.
The Cardinals now head back out on the road as they travel to New Orleans to face off against the unbeaten Saints. With two victories over NFC South rivals, including a nail-biter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the Saints are looking like their old selves with head coach Sean Payton back at the helm.
Let’s go behind enemy lines and see what’s happening down in “The Big Easy.”
