Why shouldn't he? The Red Birds received 314 yards passing from Carson Palmer, two touchdown catches from Larry Fitzgerald and a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown by linebacker Karlos Dansby, among other highlights. Fitzgerald also became the fastest player to 11,000 receiving yards in NFL history. Rashard Mendenhall and Andre Ellington combined for 104 yards on the ground.
The Cards dominated the game in every sense of the word and limited Colts QB Andrew Luck to just 163 yards passing. Arizona led 27-6 at halftime and never looked back.
“Basically after watching the film, it was a daggone good outing by everyone, especially defensively,” Arians told espn.com. "Overall, I was very pleased with the performance."
The Cardinals are now tied with the San Francisco 49ers for second place in the NFC West with a 7-4 record. They are in the thick of the NFC wild card race with a trip to Philadelphia on the horizon this Sunday. They've won four straight and are playing their best football at the right time of the year.
Things are getting exciting in the desert these days.
