Eight straight losses at Minnesota, three straight losses on the season. Mistakes, questionable play calling and the continued issues on offense and we are left with a team that feels like they are in a free fall after Sundays 21-14 loss to the Vikings, dropping to 4-3 on the year.
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson would run for 153 yards, score a touchdown and would average 6.7 yards per carry.
Cardinals kicker Jay Feely pushed a field goal to the right, just before halftime that would’ve cut the gap to just four.
Quarterback John Skelton threw a six yard TD pass to Andre Roberts in the final moments but that was as close as the Cardinals would get.
The game would feature more than a few questionable play calls by offensive coordinator Mike Miller and head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
The Cardinals would go for a 4th and two in the fourth quarter down 21-7 only to see John Skelton come up far short.
Later in the final quarter, the Cardinals were penalized for delay of game pushing them to a 4th and 10.
The Cardinals would dominate time of possession 35:05 to just 24:55 for the Vikings.
Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder would throw two interceptions and finish with only 58 yards passing.
But it all just wasn’t enough.
