GLENDALE, AZ- From an interception to a record kick, this game was full of unexpected moments that lead the Cardinals 3 short and allowing the Bills to take the win.
There were a lot of interesting moments in this Phoenix game. With Skelton’s prior injury on his left ankle in the season opener, it had cleared the way for Kolb to reclaim the position. Last night though, Skelton entered the field. With his fourth-down pass to Fitzgerald it allowed for the record kick. The set-up for the kick was in play and in walked Arizona’s kicker, Jay Feely. Feely made a franchise-record 61-yard field goal with only a minute left. This led the Cardinals to tie it 16-all; however; his 38 yard attempt to win the game with only seconds left in fourth quarter, led the Cardinals into overtime.
Cardinals fans- shocked. Any minor or major game changers, prior, during the game don’t do Cardinal fans justice, for this field goal oops. Feely made the following statement after the game, ”You go from on top of the world to feeling about as low as you can feel.” So true.
The Bills took the overtime kickoff, and headed down toward the Arizona 35, with Sam Acho receiving a pass interference penalty. The Bills chose to punt, giving Arizona the ball.
Here was the Cards chance to take the win; yet Skelton’s pass was intercepted by Bird. A few plays later kicker, Lindell, received his third field goal of the season and allowing the Bills to redeem a win, after the past few horrifying games.
Final score was 19 Bills- 16 Cardinals.
The Cardinals (4-2) lost their second game in a row after a 4-0 start. As for the Bills, (3-3) won after allowing 1,201 yards and 97 points in their previous two games.
