Drew Stanton leads second-half comeback Week 3
by Michael Hurcomb |

Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw two second-half touchdown passes to rookie receiver John Brown, leading Arizona to a 23-14 comeback win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Stanton completed 18 of 33 passes for 244 yards, while rushing for 16 yards on six carries.

Stanton didn't have a very productive first half, completing just 8 of 17 passes for 83 yards as Arizona trailed 14-6 by the break. Stanton then threw touchdown passes of 21 and 24 yards to Brown in the third quarter, and the Cardinals never looked back.

Stanton came close to throwing a third touchdown to Brown in the second half, but he overthrew Brown, who had run past his defender down the left sideline. It would have resulted in a 45-yard touchdown had Stanton hit Brown in stride. 

The Cardinals head into a bye Week 4 before returning to play Week 5 at Denver. If Carson Palmer (shoulder) is healthy, he is expected to resume the starting quarterback job.

Cardinals planning to start Drew Stanton vs. 49ers
by Larry Hartstein |

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer's status hasn't changed and that backup Drew Stanton is in line to start Sunday against the 49ers, reports the Bay Area News Group. Palmer has a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder.

Stanton completed 14 of 29 throws for 167 yards in the Week 2 win at the Giants.

Carson Palmer not any better Monday
by Larry Hartstein |

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who missed the Week 2 win at the Giants with a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder, showed no improvement Monday, according to the team's website.

"Hopefully any minute it starts working," Palmer said. "We'll see."

If healthy, Palmer will start Week 3 against the 49ers, even if he is unable to practice all week. Drew Stanton will make his second straight start if Palmer can't play. There is no timetable for Palmer's return.

"We're doing every kind of research we possibly can," coach Bruce Arians said about Palmer's injury. "He's getting every kind of treatment known to man. He's got more needles sticking in him half the day than most of us in our lifetime."

Drew Stanton leads Cards to win in place of injured QB
by Michael Hurcomb |

Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw no touchdowns Sunday against the Giants. However, he was able to play turnover-free football and that was good enough to lead Arizona to a 25-14 win Week 2, despite starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined due to a shoulder injury.

Stanton completed less than half of his passes (14 for 29), finishing with 167 passing yards. He was sacked four times and rushed for minus-2 yards. Stanton was credited with an 8-yard passing touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald on the opening drive of the game, but it was called back as Fitzgerald was ruled down at the 1-yard line after an official review.

Stanton, who was making his first start since 2010, improved to 3-2 in five career starts. The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 against the 49ers and Stanton could make a second consecutive start, as coach Bruce Arians indicated after Sunday's game that Palmer could be out until after the team's Week 4 bye.
