    What started out as a snoozer quickly turned into a battle well into the 4th quarter at home for the Cards. After a heart breaking loss to the 9ers where the coaching of the Cardinals team was criticized for being to conservative, the Cards had yet another game against a division rival which finished out there round 1 in the division. The Cards managed int he first quarter to get off to a fast start with 2 big play touchdowns. The Hawks on the other hand were only able to muster up 3 points of their own, and towards the end of the quarter gave the ball to the Cards yet again. With a furious drive to put the game out of reach the Cards were closing in early in the 2nd to go up by 3 scores when John Skeleton reached to far and threw a INT on the Hawks 2 yard line. The 2nd quarter saw the Cards and Hawks more or less trade points with 2 good FGs by the Hawks and only 1 TD by the Cards.
    The 2nd quarter was almost the turning point for the Hawks as the Cards struggled on the ground and were unable to effectively move the ball in the air. The Hawks scored on their opening possession and held the Cards to attempt their first of 2 62 yard FGs. Then the Hawks got the ball back down by 4 points and were driving to take the first lead in 10 quarters vs the Cards....on 3rd and short Austin throws a quick out and it is tipped up by rookie Cooper and deflected into the willing hands of DRC who returns the INT 108 yards for a TD. Not to be deterred by the sudden change of luck Santana Moss returns the following kick-off 102 yards for a score of his own. After the big plays the Cards start playing conservatively and manage 2 more FGs and a Pick 6 to close out the game. Final 44-28 Cards

    GG Bates, Before DRC got that Pick 6 I was seeing stars, this was one of our more fun games. GL the rest of the season
