Panthers 30, Cardinals 20

Cardinals' rebound hits another snag

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Just when it appeared the Cardinals were turning things around, their season has hit another speed bump.

Arizona lost to the Panthers one week after missing a golden opportunity against the Seahawks and settling for a 6-6 tie when a short Chandler Catanzaro field goal attempt hit the upright in overtime.

"We're getting hit in the mouth," Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter said. "We have to stop the bleeding before it's too late."

They'll have a bye next week to figure that out.

Sunday's outing was a mistake-filled affair in which the Cardinals were penalized 10 times for 88 yards, allowed eight sacks and had one situation when they wound up in a second and 44 after quarterback Carson Palmer was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct for yelling at an official.

"We had way, way too many penalties and missed assignments," said Cardinals coach Bruce Arians. "The pass protection struggled. I'll have to check the film for all of the holding penalties, but penalties were obviously a huge factor in this game."

Running back David Johnson caught nine passes for 84 yards but managed just 24 yards on 10 carries.
