Many former cardinal players made an impact in the NFL this Sunday. The most impactful seemed to be Bilal Powell. Powell only had 10 carries for 45 yards but seemed to be on the field in more pivotal situations than his counterpart, Shone Green. Powell, who was named the face of the program in Strong’s first season as head coach, moved from the 3rd string running back in the beginning of the season, to a major factor in an already shaky Jets offense.
On the defensive side of the ball, Elvis Dumervil recorded 3 tackles and 1 sack in a loss to the Texans. William Gay and Kerry Rhodes really stepped up in the Cardinals defense today also. Gay got 6 tackles including 1 for loss, while Rhodes got 4 tackles and a sack. Rhodes got a couple shout outs on CBS for his play and how he was personally making an impact on the game. The Cardinals defense took the Eagles and man handled them to the beat of only six points, coming both off of field goals.
David Akers had a rare missed field goal in the box score this week. The Vikings special teams blocked his missed field goal.
On the offensive side of the ball, Michael Bush ran for 55 yards and a touchdown. With Matt Forte out, Bush got most of the carries and helped the Bears take down 23-6. In Atlanta, Harry Douglas only got 2 catches for 13.
