Johnson, pass rush positive signs from Arizona's loss at KC

The 2-6 Cards will visit the 8-1 Kansas City Chiefs in a game that has all the makings of a disaster for Arizona. "I love Ben. He's one of those Iowa guys who is real smart".

She posted a picture of her smiling as the team played behind her just moments before he collapsed.

With the first half drawing to a close, Mahomes and Hill connected once again for a touchdown and Hill upped the ante.

They can still get a whole lot better, too. "I'm proud of him for how he's going about his business". Safety Daniel Sorensen also got into the game, subbing in for a third down package in the first quarter for his first game action after he was elevated from the injured reserve list last week. As a whole, we know that if we want to win this whole thing, the defense has got to play better week in and week out. "That put us behind". With Arizona's score, the Chiefs' lead was reduced to six points with 7:48 to go in the third.

"I thought it was a great game plan by the offensive coaches", coach Steve Wilks said in his weekly Monday news conference. "For him to come in and do that, that's wonderful".

Hill celebrated the score by leaping into the stands, then commandeering the CBS camera - earning him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from the officials and a sharp rebuke from coach Andy Reid. He managed to capture the official throwing a flag on him for unsportsmanlike conduct.

"The celebration just came into my head", Hill said. Larry Fitzgerald has his first two receptions of the game and is only 15 yards from passing Terrell Owens in career receiving yards for second place all-time. Rosen led touchdown drives on the team's first possession of each half but couldn't sustain any march down field longer than 46 yards afterwards.

Many long time National Football League observers and Missouri residents can tell you that the Arizona Cardinals used to play in St. Louis where the franchise was located until 1987. "Little good nuggets here and there, but there were bad things to clean up".

Wilks said the Cardinals emphasized looking for Fitzgerald in the second half. "We got some good confidence going as well". "It's tough when the pocket is collapsing on you and you're not able to go through your progression".

Jones' sack was one of five for the Chiefs on the afternoon, matching their most in a single game this season. Mahomes was also hit six times in the opening quarters.

Perhaps it's no surprise the Chiefs defense played the best it has all season.

Johnson has topped 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the past two games after failing to do so in the first seven of the season.
