Cardinals Cover 2 - Defense Steps Up, Offense Steps Down In Houston

Ep. 701 - There was a lack of complimentary football played on Sunday in Houston. The offense and the defense never could get on the same page. The offense started well and then sputtered, while the defense got off to a slow start before pitching a shutout in the second half. Craig Grialou and Zach Gershman look back at the 21-16 loss to the Texans. "Frustrating" is the word Kyler Murray used to describe what happened, or better said what didn't happen, especially on fourth down. The defense recorded three interceptions, yet no points were scored off any of the takeaways. It was a missed opportunity. Speaking of opportunity, Greg Dortch took advantage of his and he earned this week's Angry Bird Award.
