Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said that one play by John Skelton overshadowed what was an otherwise strong performance. It's an obvious case when that one mistake was a interception returned for a touchdown that statistically was the difference in a 21-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings last week.
Said Whisenhunt, according to ArizonaSports.com:
"[Skelton] did some really good things, made some good throws and was good in the pocket. But, [the interception] is the kind of thing you have to eliminate."
Skelton threw for 256 yards and a touchdown to go with the interception, and avoiding turnovers might be a bigger factor than any completion percentage or total yardage by a game's end.
With the San Francisco 49ers and their intimidating defense on deck, the turnover margin for Skelton will be paramount in the Cardinals coming away with a victory.
