Arizona Cardinals prove no match in lop-sided game.
The New Orleans Saints defence was the star of the show as they helped their side to an easy 31-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Despite the defence being full of new and young faces, they have consistently stood up to the task asked of them in helping the Saints remain undefeated this year.
Four sacks on the day, two by Cameron Jordan, typified the type of suffocating pressure New Orleans were able to put on the Cards suspect offensive line.
This in turn gave Drew Brees the territory advantage he needed to go work, as he finished with 342 yards.
However, the running game continues to be a problem for New Orleans and it actually regressed against the Cardinals, with the victors only securing minus six yards, an incredible stat give the size of the final margin.
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had an outstanding game in catching nine passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns Sunday. He’s now up to 23 catches for 358 yards and four scores on the year.
New Orleans will face their stiffest test of the season in week four when they take on a Miami Dolphins side that is full of confidence after going 3-0 for the first time since 2002.
Arizona will have a good chance of adding to its win tally in week four when they face the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are 0-3 so far this season.
