Football News

In today's top US headline, Arizona Cardinals edged out San Diego Chargers in their season opener on Monday night.

The NFC West was the NFL's strongest division last year, and it looks like it could be even stronger this season after the Cardinals late 18-17 win.

Offensive expectation

There's been talk all off-season about the Cardinals offense being much improved compared to last season.

And although we didn't see any example of that through three quarters against the Chargers, the Cardinals late game-winning drive displayed the promise for all to see.

Awesome drive

Arizona managed to go 91 yards in only four minutes and 25 seconds, with quarterback Carson Palmer using six different receiving options.

It was rookie John Brown who sealed the win with a 13-yard TD from a Palmer screen pass, with the Cardinals showing their clutch play ability.

Arizona only just missed out on the playoffs in 2013, but this year they look set to challenge Seattle and San Francisco all the way for the NFC West title.

That's all for today, check back tomorrow for more.
