The cardinals - all talk
How about that. The Cardinals stopped the Giants three times on the same third down because penalties kept the down alive. Arizona's last stop was a pick by Antoine Bethea, his fourth of the season.
The Cardinals and Giants have most frequently been associated with a move for Stanton during the early part of the offseason. Both teams are trying to reclaim their position as postseason contenders after missing out on the playoffs this year.
Collins, meanwhile, made first-team All-Pro in his second NFL season and was a finalist for the NFL defensive player of the year award.
As expected, the Cardinals tendered a qualifying offer to Lance Lynn. The one-year, $-million deal will be rejected by Lynn as he enters free agency. It does mean that the Cardinals will secure a compensatory draft pick if Lynn signs with another team. That pick will come after the second round.
“I was joking about it with Jalen and [Tashaun] Gipson today, and I was saying this man is cold, he makes a play and he just throws [the ball] straight to the referee and runs back,’’ cornerback . Bouye said. “I don’t know how the game is going to be as far as the trash talking thing, that’s not our main focus. Our focus is to do our job, and we have a lot of respect for him as a player. We know how dangerous he is and for him to still be at a high level, a top five receiver, is amazing. You’ve got to have respect for a guy like that.’’

Losman completing an 87-yard TD pass to WR Lee Evans , yet the Cardinals answered right back with RB Edgerrin James getting a one-yard TD run. Buffalo would answer with Losman getting a two-yard TD run, yet the Cardinals continued its momentum with kicker Neil Rackers getting a 47-yard field goal.
The Cardinals want to add an impact hitter and at least two relievers, and will explore starting options this winter. John Mozeliak, the Cardinals’ president of baseball operations, met Sunday evening with the representatives for relievers Addison Reed and Brandon Morrow. A Cardinals official said the team would like to add a reliever with closing experience but also “multiple” options for the bullpen.
