The Miami Dolphins received huge days from rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and wide receiver Brian Hartline who had a career and franchise record-breaking day but it was not enough to get the win against the Arizona Cardinals. It was a 46-yard field goal by Jay Feely in overtime that gave Arizona the win, 24-21, and had them advance to 4-0 on the season.

Hartline set the franchise record for receiving yards in a game which was previously set by Chris Chambers. Hartline hauled the ball in for 254 yards and a touchdown. He gained the yardage on 12 receptions.

For the Cardinals, Kevin Kolb had another solid performance.

Kolb completed 29-of-48 passes for 324 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Kolb put together the impressive effort behind a shaky offensive line that allowed eight sacks.

The Cardinals still have some improvements to make but they are currently sitting at 4-0 with every chance of making it to 7-0. The team’s next three games are against the St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings. Arizona is one of the biggest surprise teams of the season.

    Where’s the post for the Falcons win? Maybe that’s you guys hiding it to save yourself a little embarrassment over the preseason schedule preview crap. Where’s Chris at? I’d love to see his take on the 4-0 Falcons when he thought they would go 6-10. hahaha

      I am sure Chris will gladly stand up for himself but that was not the view of the entire staff. I personally had Atlanta in the NFC Championship game against the Bears.

        I’d love to hear from him, about the Falcons and the rest of the NFC South. Because apparently the Saints are going to win out, and the Panthers are going to somehow get six wins.
