TEMPE, Ariz. -- In the aftermath of a strange game loaded with what if scenarios, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was asked if there was anything he learned about his team.Oh yeah, he said after reviewing video of the game. I think were a very good football team. Im very confident of that. ... Mentally our football team is very, very resilient. Its a long journey to the end.And was Sunday nights 6-6 tie with the Seattle Seahawks one of the more bizarre games hes experienced?It was a different one for sure, Arians said at his Monday news conference. Ive only been doing it for about 40-some years, but thats in the top five.Chandler Catanzaros missed 24-yard field goal try in overtime was only the last of a series of missed opportunities.A blocked punt set up the only Seattle score of regulation. The Cardinals failed on a fourth-and-one try at the Seahawks 19-yard line, time ran out before the Cardinals could get off a field goal try in the final seconds of the first half, and David Johnson came within inches of scoring what would have been the game-winning touchdown in OT.Michael Floyd dropped a pass deep in Seattle territory.And thats not to mention Bobby Wagners amazing block of Catanzaros 39-yard field goal try.I dont know how many plays we had, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said after the game. It felt like 100, but were a tired football team right now. ... Weve got to bounce back. Weve got a big game next week.Actually, Arizona ran 90 plays in the game, the second-most in franchise history. The Cardinals ran 94 plays against Washington in 1994.Johnson touched the ball on 41 of those plays, 33 as a ball carrier and eight as a receiver. The second-year running back had 171 yards from scrimmage -- 113 rushing, 58 receiving. He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 1,004.The Cardinals had the ball a whopping 46 minutes, 21 seconds, the second-most in NFL history. The New York Jets had the ball for 47:08 against Cleveland in 2010.Still, Arizona managed just two field goals.Arians praised the Cardinals defense.One of the best defensive performances Ive seen since Ive been here, he said.Until the overtime, the only time the Seahawks were in Arizona territory was after the blocked punt.The Cardinals havent allowed a touchdown in the last two games.Arizona sits at 3-3-1 heading to Carolina and a stadium filled with bad memories. The Cardinals lost playoff games their last two trips there, most recently a blowout defeat in last seasons NFC championship game.And this wasnt the only Sunday night missed field goal that has plagued the Cardinals.A bad snap helped lead to Catanzaros missed field goal that would have beaten New England in the season opener.Arians said he still fully supports Catanzaro.The kicker just needs to kick it through the two poles and wed be 5-2, he saidGame notes The Cardinals will be without wide receiver Jaron Brown for the rest of the season. He tore an ACL against the Seahawks and is out for the season. Browns absence will especially be missed on special teams. ... Arians is optimistic that wide receiver John Brown will be back after sitting out Sunday nights game due to what the team called sickle cell traits that caused leg pain. ... The coach said outside linebacker Alex Okafor will miss the Carolina game with a strained calf.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org

. Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. http://www.airmaxclearanceonline.com/nike-air-vapormax-2018.html

. - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Kemba Walker had no nice way to describe the Charlotte Hornets 97-87 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.That was pretty ugly, Walker said, before quickly adding that the Hornets will take the wins any way they can get them.Walker scored 18 points, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 14 and the Hornets got their third win in the last four games Thursday night to remain in first place in the Southeast Division.The Mavericks slowed the tempo of the game, but the Hornets didnt get frustrated and never trailed.At the end of the day, it shows toughness, Walker said. It shows that we can withstand games. They really slowed it down tonight. But we really stayed with the game and won. ... Thats what you have to do on some nights.Walker was just 7 of 19 from the field and Charlotte again struggled from the foul line at home.However, the Hornets got a big boost from their bench, which combined for 46 points on 25 shots, led by Jeremy Lamb, who had 12 points.That was a hard game to play, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. It wasnt a conventional tempo for a NBA game to be played. It was slower. They really execute and they really changed their defenses. The tempo of a NBA game usually lets you get into a rhythm. But there was no way they would let us get into a rhythm. Bottom line is thats a game that good teams win.Harrison Barnes scored 17 points and Justin Anderson added 15 for the Mavericks (3-15), who have lost 10 of their last 11 games.The Hornets led by two when Walker drained a long 3-pointer to beat the shot clock with 3:51 to give his team the spark it needed. Lamb followed with a driving layup that resulted in a three-point play to push the lead to 86-78.The Mavs would battle back behind Barnes to cut the lead to three, but Lamb hit two free throws and Walker buried a 3-pointer from the right wing with 41 seconds left to put the game out of reach.TIP-INSMavericks: Deron Williams did not play down the stretch in the fourth quarter because he was on a minutes restriction on the second night of a bback-to-back.dddddddddddd ... Dwight Powell fouled out with 1:18 left.Hornets: Nic Batum, who received a $120 million contract this offseason, has struggled some with turnovers this season. He entered averaging 2.3 per game and had three in the first half. ... The Hornets were 22 of 31 from the foul line and shot 28 percent from 3-point range.GIANTS WRESTLINGFor the most part it was a subdued, lackluster game until the middle of the fourth quarter, when Mavericks center Salah Mejri grabbed the ball after it went out of bounds and cradled it in his arms until Charlottes Roy Hibbert inexplicably attempted to rip it out. In a bizarre sight, the two 7-footers started wrestling for the ball well after the whistle had blown ending the play. They finally tumbled to the floor together, sending long arms and legs flying in every direction. Several players were seen trying to keep themselves from laughing at the spectacle after the play, which resulted in Hibbert getting a technical foul.STRUGGLING FROM 3Dallas Wesley Matthews was upset with himself after the game for making just 1 of 11 3-point shots.If I shoot halfway decent, you give me those looks, and its a different game, Matthews said.ECLECTIC SITUATIONMavericks coach Rick Carlisle said his team is in an eclectic situation right now.Weve got to get these guys healthy, Carlisle said. Weve got to do it the right way. In the meantime, other guys are getting valuable experience. Were playing some guys in some different positions and finding out some different things. We just have to keep up the fight. If we do that, things will come around.DEFENSE WINSThe Hornets improved to 8-0 in games in which theyve limited their opponent to fewer than 100 points.UP NEXTMavericks: Dallas returns home to host the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.Hornets: Charlotte concludes a three-game homestand on Saturday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
