Cardinals Vs Lions score update: Lots of punts in scoreless tie after one quarter

The Arizona Cardinals. having lost nine straight games, took on the Detroit Lions in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday. After one quarter of play, both teams were knotted up at zero.

The first drive for the Arizona Cardinal started in promising fashion. Ryan Lindley connected with Michael Floyd on a 25-yard pass play and then LaRod Stephens-Howling ran the ball for 14. They got into field goal range, but a holding penalty and a false start stalled the drive and the Cardinals had to punt.

From there, the Lions wen three and out on three straight series and the Cardinals punted and turned the ball over with a Ryan Lindley interception.

Lindley so far is 5/7 passing for 40 yards and a pick. Matthew Stafford has completed 2/6 for 19 yards, both completions going to Calvin Johnson,

Detroit has the ball near midfield to begin the second quarter. Looking for Arizona Cardinals Tickets?
