PHOENIX – The Arizona Cardinals put together a complete offensive effort for the first time this season during the second half of Sunday’s 26-16 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

Quarterback Kyler Murray and company found their groove after falling behind 10-3 at halftime, a welcome sight for Cardinals radio analyst and host Ron Wolfley.

“What we saw in that Carolina Panther game in the second half, that actually is the offense that I envisioned this team executing as the season unfolds,” Wolfley told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show on Monday.

In Arizona’s first win of the season, Murray was something of a one-man show in rallying Cardinals (2-2) past the Las Vegas Raiders 29-23 in overtime in Week 2.

The fourth-year quarterback threw for two touchdowns and ran for another against Carolina (1-3), all in the second half, but he had plenty of help as Arizona took control of the game.

“It was everyone else that was making plays,” Wolfley said. “Hollywood Brown was out there making plays. They were attacking downfield. They threw the ball downfield, tried to get some big plays. They were physical running the ball.”

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown caught his second touchdown pass of the season, and first since the season opener, to give the Cardinals a 26-10 lead midway through the fourth quarter, essentially putting the game out of reach.

“They may have found something in that second half that they can actually build on,” Wolfley said.

The Cardinals move on to face the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team, on Sunday at State Farm Stadium. Arizona hasn’t won a home game in nearly a year, with the last one coming Oct. 24, 2021.

“This would be a great time to play their best game against the Eagles, and they’ve got a chance. … We’ll see how it goes,” Wolfley said.
