  New England scored on on 9 of their 1st 10 drives en route to a 47-7 blow out of the Arizona Cardinals, at a snowy Gillette Stadium. LaMont Jordan ran for 2 touchdowns and Matt Cassel threw for 3 touchdowns in the blow out.

  Any talk of Kurt Warner being an M.V.P. canidate were put to rest today as the snow and the Patriot defense led to his 6 of 18 for only 30 yards. Matt Leinart saw is 1st significant action of the regular season, throwing for 138 yards and a T.D.

  The running game was once again absent. Edggerin James "led" the way with 19 yards on 4 carried. Tim Hightower once again was underwhelming, rushing for 17 yards on 10 carries. The line was outplayed again but the Patriot defense.

  While this game was basically meaningless for the Cardinals, it is important to note that the Cards are finding it harder and harder to run at all.

Teams are almost daring them to run! This will become very problematic come january.

  Two key contributors sat out today. Anquan Boldin with a shoulder injury and J.J. Arrington with a knee injury. Both should be fine for the post season.
