Floyd kicked off the team's second scoring drive by hauling in a 49-yard pass, beating his man deep and catching a perfectly placed ball before being brought down. He didn't have much more of an impact on the game, but the Cardinals resorted to ball control and excellent defense to pick up the win.
Larry Fitzgerald was the only Arizona player with more than two receptions, catching seven passes for 30 yards. Rookie
The Cardinals have a tough matchup on the schedule next week, facing the Seahawks at home in Week 16.

Floyd was able to haul in five passes for 53 yards. It was a tough one for Floyd. His longest reception went for 22 yards, so he was mainly limited to short catches. After his big play, Floyd hauled in a 13 yard reception, but fumbled, turning the ball over. He was also flagged for offensive pass interference during the contest.
Floyd will look for more Week 14 against the Chiefs.
That's because, with backup Drew Stanton again under center for the Cardinals, Floyd went without a single catch. He was targeted twice but failed to connect -- and with fellow wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald sidelined by a a sprained knee, no less.
That's the lowest of lows for him in what has been by and large a disappointing season. With this performance, he's averaging 2.1 catches for 28.9 yards over his last seven games. He's had a few touchdowns during that stretch to soften the blow, but ultimately, all they've done is given his owners false hope.
Unlike Fitzgerald, Floyd's production didn't improve for those five games when starting quarterback Carson Palmer was back from injury, and now Palmer is out for the year. Between Stanton's shortcomings and John Brown's emergence, you shouldn't be hoping for any sort of rebound from Floyd.
Brown's reception late in the third quarter was a thing of beauty, shaking off his coverage while djusting to an underthrown ball and barely keeping his toes in bounds while falling to the sideline. The play stood after being challenged by the Seahawks. Unfortunately, it was one of precious few highlights for the passing game against a stout Seattle defense.
The Cardinals offense will hope to bounce back with a likely easier matchup in Atlanta in Week 13.
