    Cardinals' Carson Palmer: Fires four touchdowns Sunday

    Palmer directed the Cardinals to a 34-20 victory Sunday in Cleveland, completing 23-of-38 passes for four touchdowns and one interception. After falling behind 20-7 at the 4:56 mark of the second quarter, Palmer guided his squad to three touchdowns and two field goals over the final eight drives, not including two kneel downs to clinch the contest. In the process, he connected with seven different receivers, with Michael Floyd (four catches for 106 yards and one touchdown) leading the way for the first time in 2015. While becoming the first Cardinals quarterback to toss four touchdowns twice in the same season, Palmer has also reached the 300-yard threshold five times through the mid-point of the season.

    Cardinals' Carson Palmer: High yardage output despite loss to Steelers

    Palmer completed 29-of-45 passes for 421 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions Sunday against the Cardinals. The yardage output was the veteran's highest mark since Week 9 of the 2006 season, as the Cardinals fell behind in the second half and strayed away from the running game. Palmer threw multiple interceptions for the first time this season, but he still sports a very strong 14:5 TD:INT ratio. Week 7 presents an excellent bounce-back opportunity for Palmer and company, as the Ravens, who rank near the very bottom of the league in pass defense, will travel to Arizona.

    Cardinals QB Carson Palmer nabs three touchdowns in blowout win

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed 11 of 14 passes for 161 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 42-17 win at Detroit. Palmer didn't need to do much, as the Cardinals controlled throughout, and he was pulled for backup QB Drew Stanton midway through the fourth quarter with the game in hand. While Palmer had a solid statistical game in Week 4, it wasn't his finest outing, so he rebounded nicely Sunday. He continues to show a great rapport with John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald, as the wideout duo combined to catch 9-of-11 targets for 128 yards and two touchdowns. The veteran QB will play in a tough environment in Week 6 at Pittsburgh, although the Steelers' defense is not as strong as recent seasons.

    Cardinals QB Carson Palmer throws for 352 yards, TD in loss

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed 29 of 46 pass attempts for 352 yards with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Rams. Palmer didn't play poorly, but it was his stiffest challenge of the season, and he looked a little out of sorts on a few occasions, stalling on the Rams' side of the field (K Chandler Catanzaro had five FGs). The veteran QB had been sacked just one time entering Sunday's game, but the Rams' pass rush got to him four times. On a positive note, Palmer got wideout Michael Floyd involved more, as the duo hooked up five times for 59 yards. He'll face the Lions on the road in Week 5.

    Cardinals QB Carson Palmer throws for 311 yards, two TDs in win

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed 20 of 32 pass attempts for 311 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, in Sunday's 47-7 win over San Francisco. Palmer had somewhat of a quiet first half because the Cardinals scored a couple of defensive touchdowns and got a pair of scores from Chris Johnson. The veteran QB kept throwing though, as both of his touchdowns to Larry Fitzgerald came in the second half. Palmer continues to play well, with a 9-2TD:INT ration through three games this season. Even without Andre Ellington (knee), Palmer has a plethora of weapons at his disposal, so he could be in line for a big season. He'll have a tough test in Week 4, however, facing a solid Rams defense.

    Cardinals QB Carson Palmer fires four touchdown passes in win

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed just 17 passes Sunday in 24 attempts, but four of his strikes went the distance. He finished with 185 yards and a quartet of scores in beating Chicago. While he did throw one interception, Palmer was excellent. He hit Larry Fitzgerald for three touchdowns and added one to Jaron Brown. The return of wideout Michael Floyd (fingers) didn't do much (no catches on one target), but it's encouraging that Palmer continues to play well even with one of his starting receivers hindered. Palmer will head into a Week 3 matchup against the 49ers with seven touchdowns in just two games this season.

    Cardinals QB Carson Palmer throws for 307 in beating Saints

    Three touchdowns, 307 yards, no interceptions, a victory and a clean uniform. That was one pleasant afternoon for Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer was not sacked once in leading his team to a victory over New Orleans on Sunday. He completed 19 of 32 passes and fired scoring strikes to Josh Brown, Darren Fells and David Johnson. The 55-yarder to the latter with 1:33 remaining clinched the victory. He will try to take his momentum and run with it in Week 2 at Chicago.

    Cardinals' Carson Palmer 'not even thinking about' knee injury

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer proclaimed himself completely recovered from the knee injury that cut last season short. Palmer has been working out with wide receiver John Brown and has noticed no lingering effects from last season's ACL tear. "I'm not even thinking about my knee," Palmer said, per "I'm still rehabbing just to be on the safe side of things but I don't need to be at rehab. I'm full go in the weight room, full go on the field, and until it's brought up, I haven't thought about everything I'm not doing, because I'm doing everything I was doing."

    Carson Palmer returns to practice for Cardinals

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer returned to practice for the first time since his season-ending knee injury last November. Palmer returned from surgery to correct a torn ACL. He was able to take part in 11-on-11 drills for the Cardinals on Tuesday. "This is just one of the many steps in a long road," he said, per the Associated Press. "This was the goal from the get-go, from Nov. 18 on, and it's just one goal achieved. There's a lot bigger goals and a number of goals still to go." Coach Bruce Arians was happier with Palmer's performance than the quarterback was. "Of the 100 balls he threw, he only had one bad one," he said. "I thought his movement in the pocket, there was no hesitation in him. I hope he's never happy, and I don't think he ever will be until he hoists that Lombardi Trophy."

    Cardinals veteran starting quarterback Carson Palmer, who lost the last seven games of the 2014 season to an ACL tear, has been cleared to participate in 11-on-11 drills in minicamp on Tuesday. "I'm ready. I'm excited. I'm 100 percent. I'm cleared," he told ESPN. "I can do everything. I've tested out. Gotten stronger every week, every month, just ready to get going." Palmer added that he had been cleared "weeks ago" but Bruce Arians and the team's training staff opted for caution and held him back.
