David Johnson Suffers Sprained Wrist

Report: Cardinals' David Johnson Could Miss 'Half the Season' With Sprained Wrist

Justin Bethel returned Stafford's first pass of the game 82 yards for a Cardinals touchdown after former Lion Josh Bynes bumped Golden Tate off his route on a play over the middle, and the Lions made a handful of costly special-teams mistakes. Stafford's pick came two plays after Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw an equally ugly interception.

Theo Riddick and Marvin Jones also had touchdown catches for the Lions, who visit the New York Giants next week on Monday Night Football.

The Lions have players who will get yards after contact. This is Ameer Abdullah's time to shine.

Report: Cardinals' David Johnson Could Miss 'Half the Season' With Sprained Wrist
Surgery likely for Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson after wrist injury

Quarterback Matthew Stafford is playing his best football since a year ago 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.

The Lions offense responded by stalling out again as the game looked to be slipping away, before the defense delivered yet another game-altering turnover. However, the Leos are a bit undermanned on defense and will need someone to step up if they're going to keep this Arizona offense at bay, and in the end I'm not sure they will be able to do enough to keep David Johnson off the scoreboard.

The defense got the ball back in short order, thanks to a third-down sack by Zettel, and the offense was able to sustain its momentum, thanks in large part to receiver TJ Jones, who made a pair of hard grabs, including a third-down conversion on a ball behind him. And the biggest question of the day, will Kenny Golladay see targets? The rookie did the rest, making an impressive diving grab to put the Lions up 11. When he high-points a ball like that, there's nothing a defensive back can do.
