In the game Warner had 132 yards and one touchdown

first_imgIn the game Warner had 132 yards and one touchdown whileLeinart compiled 93 yards with no touchdowns. Another difference was that wideout Steve Breaston wasstill on the team. Breaston, a rookie, had a 73 yard puntreturn for a touchdown that gave the Cardinals a 14-7 leadin the fourth quarter.Edgerrin James rushed for 77 yards and one touchdown,which sealed the 21-14 victory for the Cardinals. Three current Cardinals had an impact on the game as well,with Larry Fitzgerald tallying 120 yards receiving,Darnell Dockett sacking Ben Roethlisberger two and a halftimes and Adrian Wilson picking the QB off in the endzone. The Cardinals held Ben Roethlisberger to just an averageday, as the QB threw for 244 yards, two touchdowns and wasintercepted twice. But 128 of those yards and bothtouchdowns went to wide receiver Santonio Holmes, the sameguy that would ruin the Super Bowl for the Cardinals justone year later. Steelers running back Willie Parker was also held incheck, only rushing for 37 yards.It is worth noting that even though the Cardinals won thegame the Steelers were without star safety Troy Polamalu.With Polamalu the outcome could’ve been different as theSteelers defense is a different animal when Polamaluplays. Comments   Share   Another defensive note is current Cardinal Clark Haggans,who was with the Steelers at the time, did have a sack. So even though Whiz’s Cardinals have enjoyed some successagainst the Steelers, fans probably shouldn’t buy to muchinto the win considering many of the key players for theteams won’t be on the field when the teams meet thisSunday.So maybe the Cardinals can find the magic under the roofof University of Phoenix Stadium and take the first stepin righting the team’s season. In the Ken Whisenhunt era the Arizona Cardinals haveplayed the Pittsburgh Steelers twice.All Cardinals fans should remember one of those occasionswas in Super Bowl XLIII, which the Cardinals lost in thefinal seconds. But before that the teams met at University of PhoenixStadium in 2007, where Whisenhunt picked up his second asa head coach. At that time though things were a little different, mostnotably the Cardinals were still using two quarterbacks inKurt Warner and Matt Leinart.
