In the first preseason game of the season, there has been a little bit of all the bad you could want for the Arizona Cardinals in the first half. They have turned the ball over, missed a lot of tackles and had injuries. At the end of the fist half of the Hall of Fame Game, The New Orleans Saints lead the Arizona Cardinals 17-7 at the end of two quarters.
The Saints scored first on a 10-play, 77-yard drive in which missed tackles were the theme. Mark Ingram scored on a one-yard rushing TD.
The Cardinals did not score in three series with Kevin Kolb at quarterback. He was intercepted once and left the game with a rib injury,
On the Cardinals' next series, they went 90 yards on 14 plays to score a touchdown on a four-yard rush by Alfonso Smith, who ran for 46 yards on the drive. Skelton was 4/5 for 32 yards as well.
New Orleans then got a field goal and scored right before halftime when they went 94 yards in 1:21 with Chase Daniel shredding the Arizona backups. Daniel threw a four-yard TC to RB Travaris Cadet.
The second half is coming up.
