Arizona Cardinals offense was historically bad against Carolina Panthers
The Cardinals were held to just 78 total yards in Saturday’s 27-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers. That’s really, really bad.
The Cleveland Browns held the previous record for fewest yards in a postseason game, 86 yards against the New York Giants on Dec. 21, 1958.
It appeared the Cards wouldn’t get the record, but Arizona began to lateral the ball around the field on the final play and lost 20 yards. Oy.
This season alone, there were nine scoring plays that went for more than 78 yards. Individual plays! Here they are:
Lamar Miller: 97 yards
Martavis Bryant: 94 yards
Latavius Murray: 90 yards
Colin Kaepernick: 90 yards
Tre Mason: 89 yards
Gio Bernard: 89 yards
Jeremy Hill: 85 yards
And why not save the best for last …
Marshawn Lynch: 79 yards
