The Arizona Cardinals fell 33 – 18 to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, it was the first win of the season for Buffalo as they had lost to the Ravens and the Jets in the first two games.

The Cardinals came into the game confident after beating the Buccaneers 40 – 7 last week, but fell short.

Arizona’s offense started slowly and could not get on a rhythm, scoring only 7 points in the first half.

“We could not convert third down, just did a poor job running routs, finding guys, getting open and protecting the quarterback. I am proud that we fought our way back, then we gave it back away,” head coach Bruce Arians told the media after the game.

Cardinals’ quarterback Carson Palmer is confident the team will make the necessary adjustments to correct its course for the reminder of the season, “Obviously disappointed in the way we played, disappointed in myself in the way I played, but there is a lot of football left, there’s thirteen games left. We have a big division game at our house next week, so we need to find a way to improve. If there is one thing this team does is work hard,” said Palmer.

After last season’s success, the Cardinals came into this season with high hopes and again looking to pave a road that will take them to the Super Bowl, for Larry Fitzgerald that road has not been paved yet.

“Every year you have to earn the right to get to the playoffs,” Fitzgerald said.

“Right now we’re not a playoff team. The record states what it is. We start playing better, then we can handle such aspirations. But right now we’ve got to focus on what we can control, and Coach always touches on it. We have to respect the process.”

The Cardinals will face the Rams next week at University of Arizona Stadium.
