Cardinals Vs. Patriots 2012: Shock And Surprise In Arizona And New England

Well, not many expected Sunday's Arizona Cardinals win over the New England Patriots. Hearts sank all over the Valley of the Sun when the Patriots recovered a late fumble and had a chance at the winning field goal.

But Stephen Gostkowski missed badly, and the Cards won 20-18. Wrote Jess Root on Revenge of the Birds:

No one believed it could happen, but the Arizona Cardinals went into Foxborough and defeated the New England Patriots 20-18 by a strong performance by the Arizona defense, a passing touchdown and a running touchdown by Kevin Kolb and a Stephen Gostkowski missed field goal at the end of the game.

Yes, it really happened. Is it a sign of good things to come for the Cardinals this season? Too early to tell.

Greg Knopping of Pats Pulpit, SB Nation's Patriots blog, took a different approach. He broke down the Pats' loss in numbers. It's quite telling.

NFL Injury Report: Cardinals' TE Todd Heap Injures Knee

The big injury out of Sunday's Arizona Cardinals-New England Patriots game was the one Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez suffered to his ankle, but the Cardinals didn't come away completely unscathed despite the huge win they picked up in Foxborough, Mass.

Tight end Todd Heap injured a knee, and his availability for next week is in question even though he said he's fine.

Heap's loss could affect the passing game, but the Cardinals' only other significant injury going into the game was to quarterback John Skelton. Skelton was inactive Sunday due to an ankle sprain suffered against Seattle in Week 1, but even if he were deemed healthy, he still might not have kept the job with Kevin Kolb apparently finally ready to justify the big contract he got from the Cardinals.

The Cardinals had key members of their secondary, Adrian Wilson and Patrick Peterson, listed as questionable going into the game, but both played extensively.

NFL Injury Report: Cardinals Cornerback Patrick Peterson Listed As Questionable But Expected To Play

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson (groin) is expected to play Sunday against the New England Patriots despite his questionable tag, according to the Arizona Republic's Kent Somers.

Somers considers Peterson to be closer to probable than questionable with head coach Ken Whisenhunt having a conservative approach to his injury report. Fellow secondary members Rashad Johnson (thigh) and Adrian Wilson are also questionable but Somers believe they'll be on the field as well.

Cardinals fans have to be hoping that Somers is correct in his analysis as Peterson is expected to match up against big-play machine Brandon Lloyd.

Peterson has yet to miss a game in his young NFL career after setting a standard of playing through injuries during his rookie campaign. The 6'1", 219-pound defensive back opened the season with a strong showing against the Seattle Seahawks last week, holding Sidney Rice to just 36 yards on four receptions.
