Patriots Fall To The Arizona Cardinals In Home Opener, 20-18
For the longest time if you said the Patriots were down in the late minutes, people would say no problem. Not the case these days.A very disappointing home opener for the New England Patriots. A missed field goal ended up costing them the game to the Cardinals, 20-18. The Arizona defense got to Tom Brady, and got to him often. They sacked Brady four times.
Not the best day offensively for Brady either. While he threw for 316 yard, he only through for one TD and tossed a pick, as well. The Patriots ground game didn’t fare so well either, only rushing for a total of 90 yards.
Wes Welker lead all receivers with 95 yards on the day. Brady’s other favorite target, Rob Gronkowski, caught six passes for 75 yards.
Next week the Patriots have a tough road game against the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore is coming off a tough loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, 24-23.
