Chiefs Steamroll Cardinals in Season Opener
The Chiefs opened their season with a gauntlet-throwing 44-21 win over the Cardinals. If Patrick Mahomes missed Tyreek Hill going into the season, he didn’t show it all in the flat-out dominant performance.
Mahomes threw for 360 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions and capped his day off with a 144.2 passer rating. He connected with Travis Kelce, Clyde Edwards-Helaire (twice), Jody Fortson and Mecole Hardman. He also set up a sixth touchdown by feeding the ball to Isiah Pacheco, who rushed 3 yards for the score.
The Chiefs’ defense was in fine form too, led by defensive lineman Chris Jones. He tallied five pressures, a 23.7% pass-rush win rate and added a batted pass to his efforts. The defense was exceptional on third downs, forcing five punts and one turnover on downs during the course of the game.
It’s week 1, and Patrick Mahomes is already in post-season form. Mahomes only had 9 incompletions, while going 30-39. He played pitch-and-catch with his receivers and threw for 360-yards and FIVE touchdowns. #Chiefsvscardinals #NFL #Mahomes pic.twitter.com/cv9Q1ItWEw

Eagles Edge Cardinals
The Eagles were tested by the Cardinals in Week 5 at State Farm, but they managed to squeak through in the end with the narrow 20-17 after Matt Ammendola’s last-gasp, 43-yard field goal attempt for the Cardinals sailed wide right.
The win saw the Eagles improve to a 5-0 record, maintaining their status as the only undefeated team in the league.
The Eagles dug deep to clinch the gritty win, though they were in the lead from start to finish. They started brightly and took the 14-0 lead before the Cardinals stormed back to trim their lead to just four points before the half.
The Cardinals wouldn’t go away, however, and midway through the second half they tied the game 17-17. They kept up the pressure and held the Eagles to a field goal on their last drive, a gritty 17-play march for 70 yards that lasted almost eight minutes. On fourth-and-goal at the Arizona 5, Cameron Dicker struck the go-ahead 23-yard field goal to give Philly the slim 20-17 lead at 1:45.

With less than two minutes, the Cardinals engineered a 10-play, 50-yard drive that set them up with a chance to tie the game until Ammendoal missed the 43-yarder.
Jalen Hurts ran for a couple of 1-yard touchdowns and completed 26 of 36 passes for 239 yards. The defense limited Arizona’s quarterback Kyler Murray to 28-of-42 passing for 250 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Round 2 in Glendale: Who Will Own the Turf?
State Farm was a happy place, a scene of success for both the Chiefs and Eagles, although their respective games against the Cardinals and how they unfolded couldn’t have been more different or contrasting. The point is they were winners on the turf once this season.
As representatives of the AFC and NFC, they are deserving finalists. There is no doubt that they were the best of the best in their fields this season. However, for one of them, State Farm will be the scene of arguably the greatest disappointment of their campaign. Only one will be crowned champion.
