Detroit Lions roll in 4th quarter to beat Arizona Cardinals, 35-23

Chris Mortensen

Quarterback Matthew Stafford is playing his best football since previous year and a half, and it could get a stronger with the addition of running back Ameer Abdullah, who missed later half of the last season with a foot injury.

It was a mind-boggling first half by the Lions.

Detroit Lions' wide receiver Marvin Jones will host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1.

Palmer threw two interceptions in the first half and had three other passes nearly picked off. He hit a 58-yarder in the first half. At the rate their going, the Lions might not get a first down all season.

The 22-year-old, who played his college football at the University of MS, was selected by Arizona in the first round (29th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.

It wasn't all good news for Detroit, as their ground game struggled against the Cardinals stout front seven.

The football fever is here, Arizona Cardinals lock horns with Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Lions secondary also played well, contributing three interceptions and keeping Arizona's receivers from hurting them. Miles Killebrew capped the four-turnover day, intercepting a ball that deflected off the hands of running back Andre Ellington's hands and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown. Their punter, Kasey Redfern dropped a ball deep in their own end zone and instead of pooch punting, chose to run it out and was hit and knocked out of the game. He was replaced on kickoff returns in the second half by Agnew.

QB Comparison: Stafford finished 29-of-41 passing for 292 yards with four touchdowns and the one interception.

The Lions defense also successfully held Arizona's All-Pro running back David Johnson to just 23 rushing yards on 11 attempts.
