Not all wins look alike, but they all count the same. Some wins are filled with flashy runs and big-time throws, some are headlined by last-second heroics, and then some make a statement. This game was the latter.
While Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins and the offense had their share of incredible moments, it was the defense that came out swinging in the Cardinals' 17-10 win over the divisional-rival San Francisco 49ers.
Led by J.J. Watt, Chandler Jones and Isaiah Simmons, the defense clamped down on fourth down stopping the 49ers four out of five times. A feat that hasn't happened in the Valley in at least 40 years.
"We're resilient. Especially on the defensive side of the ball, we're made for these situations," said Budda Baker.
Resilient indeed, now 5-0 for the first time since 1974 and the league's last unbeaten team.
