Cardinals Send Vikings Packing, Clinch Playoff Berth In Last-Second Squeaker

It’s official, the Arizona Cardinals are in the playoffs after earning a narrow victory at home against the Minnesota Vikings with a final score of 23-20. Even though Teddy Bridgewater arguably had his best game of this season, it would be the coaching staff who’d drop the ball on the game, ultimately ending up with a loss for the team.

During the final drive, with 13 seconds left on the game clock, the Vikings decided to go with a pass play as opposed to just kicking the field goal to tie and go to overtime. What happened next was every coach’s worst nightmare: Dwight Freeney broke away and sacked Bridgewater, resulting in a stripped ball and fumble that the Cardinals recovered, effectively ending the tight matchup.

Carson Palmer was in full form, in what is easily one of the best seasons of his illustrious career, one that has seem him under center on several NFL teams. He put up 310 yards and two very long and impressive touchdown passes, relying ultimately on his defense to help put the game away late in the fourth quarter.

Early in the game, the Cardinals saw a long drive run out of steam after officials ruled that David Johnson was short of the end zone – leading to the first scoring points of the game: a field goal.

Eager to answer back, the Vikings put forth a mixed-play drive, resulting in Adrian Peterson scoring his 100th career touchdown to put the score at 7-3.

But the Cardinals were not to be outdone. Palmer zipped one to John Brown after seeing some room in the coverage. Brown would take that potato toss 65 yards to score, putting the Red Birds back in the lead at 10-7.

Some back and forth followed until near the end of the first half, when Teddy Bridgewater, who was 11 of 14 for 162 yards, helped his team get into field goal range, with Blair Walsh tying the game at 10-10 before the half.

An early third quarter fumble by Peterson was capitalized on by the Cardinals, giving them a head of steam as Palmer connected with Michael Floyd for a 42-yard touchdown pass, putting the Cardinals up 17-10.

The Cards would stop the Vikings on their next drive and work their way into field goal range to increase the lead to 20-10 by the end of the third quarter.

The Vikings were not to be outdone, however. They fought hard and drove the ball back up the field, cashing in on a 54-yard field goal to reduce the lead to 20-13.

Following a failed Cardinals drive, Bridgewater would complete 4 of 6 passes, racking up 78 yards before finding Mike Wallace for the go-ahead touchdown, tying the score at 20 apiece.

But Palmer wasn’t done just yet. He helped the cards get back into scoring range, where Chandler Catanzaro was able to put one through the uprights to take the lead at 23-20.

During the final drive, Bridgewater had four great connections on passes, effectively working his team into field goal range. But with 13 seconds on the clock remaining, the coaching staff decided to pass the ball instead of kicking the game-tying field goal. The result was that Dwight Freeney sacked Bridgewater and stripped the ball with Campbell falling on it and ending the match.

Notably, it’s only the second time the Cardinals have had 11 wins in a regular season, tying a franchise record. Carson Palmer set the new franchise passing touchdown record with 31 on the season and counting, topping the previous record which was held by Kurt Warner.

With a playoff berth secured, the team can now focus on earning a first round bye and home field advantage.

  74. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
