   K Phil Dawson

      With the Cardinals' offense unable to convert in the red zone, Dawson came up big. He was responsible for all 15 of the Cardinals' points, hitting five field goals in as many attempts. His kickoff to start the second half had significant spin and was recovered by Budda Baker to give Gabbert and the offense an extra opportunity.


Who Was Wired




Third down and red zone. We just didn't execute. The plays were so close, all the way till the end. When we made the throw, we didn't make the catch at the end.
