The Arizona Cardinals' struggles on offense continued at University of Phoenix Stadium, but it didn't seem to matter much Sunday. Behind a strong defensive performance, Arizona cruised to a 22-6 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
With the win, the Cardinals move to 3-2 as they get set to take on the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday.
Here's a look back at their 16-point victory by the numbers:
0:In all three of their wins this season, the Cardinals have shut out their opponent in the second half.
2:The first of Calais Campbell's two sacks on the day resulted in a two-point safety for Arizona in the third quarter. It was the team's first safety since Oct. 2004 against the Seattle Seahawks.
3:Quarterback Carson Palmer threw two or more picks for the third time this season with a trio of interceptions Sunday. As a member of the Oakland Raiders in 2012, the former Heisman Trophy winner only threw two or more INTs twice all season.
4:Progress is progress, and the Cardinals certainly made a little headway in terms of their ability to convert on third down. After going 1-of-10 in Week 4, Arizona managed to go 4-of-12 Sunday, including 3-of-7 after halftime.
7:Todd Bowles' unit recorded a season-high seven sacks, including two apiece by Calais Campbell, Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington.
32:In their three wins this season, the Cardinals have outscored the Buccaneers, Lions and Panthers by a combined 32-0 in the fourth quarter.
56 and 58:Middle linebacker Daryl Washington returned from a four-game suspension Sunday, and he made his presence felt early and often. Washington recorded two sacks, had a red zone interception and a team-high nine total tackles. It marked Washington's first game with a sack and an interception since Arizona's win over Carolina in Week 1 of the 2011 season.
Fellow linebacker Karlos Dansby also had himself quite a day. Dansby had two sacks and a fourth quarter interception of Newton. Sunday marked the first time since Sept. 2007 that Dansby has had multiple sacks in a game.
61:For the second consecutive week, wide receiver Michael Floyd served as Palmer's favorite target. The Notre Dame standout caught a team-high five catches for 61 yards in Sunday's victory.
90:After rushing for just 18 yards in the first half, Andre Ellington and Rashard Mendenhall got into a groove over the final 30 minutes of play en route to a combined 77 yards and a touchdown. The Cardinals' 90 rushing yards were a season high.
