Week 11: Cards Vs. Chargers Cards barely escape San Diego with upset win, 35-34 Key to the game: Lienart's leadership. Matt Lienart converted 9 of 13 3rd downs. He remained unrattled even after throwing 3 INT. He iced the game with a 5 yard scramble on 4th down to put an end to all chances of Chargers making a comeback. Unsung Hero(es): Cardinals defense. Cardinals defense only caused one turnover and allowed Antonio Gates to run free for most of the game, but when it really counted, they made their stops. Chargers only converted 3 3rd downs all game. GOAT(almost): Cardinals special teams. Darren Sproles had himself a career day returning 2 kickoffs for TDs and giving Chargers excellent field position all game long. Great game Chargers.
