TEMPE, Ariz. -- So far, the Arizona Cardinals offense is nowhere near the dynamic, big-play outfit it was a year ago. The defense, though, might be better.Arizona has not allowed a touchdown in its last two games -- a 28-3 victory over the New York Jets and that strange 6-6 overtime tie with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night. Actually, it is nine consecutive quarters if you count the 15-minute overtime period.With the addition of outside linebacker Chandler Jones and the return of Tyrann Mathieu from knee surgery, this defense was supposed to surely be improved. The Cardinals sputtered in the season-opening loss to Tom Brady-less New England and were embarrassed in a 33-18 loss at Buffalo.Things went from better in a win in San Francisco to dominant against the Jets and Seahawks.I think were just starting to groove, defensive tackle Calais Campbell said, developing the confidence, developing the swagger. We have a lot of talent. We knew that going in. Were on the same page now.Through seven games, Arizona ranks second in the NFL in total defense -- allowing an average of 289.6 yards. They are third against the pass, 13th against the run.Now its on to Carolina (1-4) to face a team thats an even puzzle than the Cardinals are at 3-3-1.Arizona Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson, a critical member of the defense, said he will be fine to play despite sore ribs that prevented him from practicing Wednesday. He was limited Thursday.For the most part I felt pretty good and Ill be ready to go Sunday, Peterson said. Probably the most challenging thing about it is trusting it will be OK in the game when I have to press.Arizona relies on Peterson to defend the opponents best receiver. He said he expects to be defending wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin most of the time SundayBruce Arians said Sundays game was the best defensive performance by the Cardinals since hes been their coach. Arizonas defense stuffed the Seahawks in regulation. Seattle got past midfield once in those four quarters, and that came on a blocked punt. The Cardinals outgained Seattle 443 yards to 257.We came in on Monday to watch the tape and, for me, as the coordinator, it was just the passion and energy our guys played with, defensive coordinator James Boettcher said. We played extremely hard. Our guys were ready to play and prepared really well during the course of the week.Jones had a strip sack against Seattle and has been the disruptive force as advertised. The other outside linebacker Markus Golden has been equally successful getting pressure. Golden has six sacks, Jones five. Arizona has 20 sacks overall. Only Denver and Buffalo have more.Arizona is tied for second in takeaways (14) and interceptions (9).jThe secondary has vastly improved from early season problems with a few personnel changes. Safety Tony Jefferson is second on the team with 20 tackles. He also has eight tackles for loss, a sack, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Safety D.J. Swearinger has two interceptions. Cornerback Marcus Cooper, acquired in a trade with Kansas City just before the season started, has three interceptions, returning two of them for touchdowns in a blowout win over Tampa Bay.Then theres Mathieu. Coming back from his second knee surgery in three seasons, he was eased into the fray at strong safety in the early games. Finally, against the Jets, he was moved into his old do everything nickel defense role when he plays all over the field. He got his first interception in that game. But he pronounces himself at 85 or 90 percent of normal and wont be fully himself until the knee brace comes off, which he hopes is soon.You can tell that hes a little frustrated that hes not The Honey Badger, because he still has that brace on, Peterson said. Hes still kind of playing second-guess football and not truly trusting it. But I trust him enough that hell get back in the groove. Hes still making those plays, hes just not making. Hes just not making those plays all game like we were accustomed to seeing him make throughout (last) season.Peterson is playing as well as ever but he knows the secondary is not the strength of this defense.Give the credit to the front four, Peterson said. Those guys are really hunting up there. Kevin Faulk Jersey . After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. Womens Patriots Jerseys . The phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt. Winchester, who was not penalized for the hit, appeared to make contact with Kellys head early in the first period of Thursdays game in Boston. http://www.cheappatriotsjerseyschina.com/tedy-bruschi-jersey/ . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. Youth Patriots Jerseys . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. Wholesale Patriots Jerseys .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. Cronulla have ended 50 years of heartache with a thrilling victory over Melbourne in Sundays NRL grand final, securing the Sharks their maiden premiership.The Sharks dominated possession and territory but were made to work until the final siren by a champion Melbourne side who were forced into an extreme defensive workload.A try to Andrew Fifita inside the final 10 minutes put the Sharks back in front, but they were made to endure one final Storm charge on fulltime before they triumphed 14-12.I cant tell you how good I feel, Sharks skipper Paul Gallen told Channel Nine.I cant believe this, after all the hard work we have put it.It is incredible.The opening exchanges were typically ferocious of the occasion with retiring Sharks hooker Michael Ennis penalised for a high shot in just the second tackle. Storm winger Marika Koroibete squared the ledger a short while later but his swinging arm on Chad Townsend also gifted the Sharks the first chance at points, which James Maloney promptly slotted from the kicking tee.And it was Maloney who then created the first try-scoring opportunity of the grand final as the five-eighth cut through in midfield and offloaded to Luke Lewis. But the former Penrith stalwart was cut down before the line, his sliding body finishing centimetres short of the opening try.The Sharks wouldnt have to wait long for a four-pointer however as they earned a repeat set from a Suliasi Vunivalu error and then executed a smart scrum set-play that put Ben Barba over. Breaking from the back of the scrum, Gallen slipped an inside pass to Barba that caught the Storm napping. Maloney added the extras from close range, giving the Sharks an invaluable 8-0 lead.Unable to get themselves into the game, the Storm looked rudderless in attack with neither Cameron Smith nor Cooper Cronk able to assert themselves on the contest.A Smith knock-on five minutes out from the break saw the two teams comes together; Ennis slapping the Storm captain on the back immediately after the mistake - an action Jordan McLean objected to my shoving the Cronulla hooker to the deck.Somehow, the Storm managed to repel the Sharks for the final few minutes of the first half to go into the break down by only eight points. But they had suffered a heavy defensive toll, making an extra 75 tackles than their opponents to halftime.That trend continued in the early minutes of the second half, too, as the Sharks rumbled out from the sheds and again attackked the Storm line.ddddddddddddBut they couldnt add to their halftime lead, and the Storm remained in the contest.The Sharks soon paid the price for their inability to capitalise on a huge share of possession and territory as Jesse Bromwich rumbled over from close range to open Melbournes account. In what was their first real attack on the Sharks line, the Storm kept it simple and Bromwichs massive frame was too big to stop from close range. Smith made no mistake with the conversion and, somehow, the Storm trailed 8-6 after 51 minutes.But the 2012 champions continued to find themselves under the pump as the Sharks surged down field set after set, yet couldnt find a way to extend their lead as the game entered its final quarter.And then Cronulla found themselves behind.Having absorbed so much pressure, it was tough to think how the Storm had the energy to attack at all. But it certainly wasnt an issue for centre Will Chambers who scored a try worthy of the decider as he broke free of two defenders and then cut back inside to dive over. Smith again nailed the conversion from the right of the posts to give the Storm a 12-8 lead with 15 minutes to play.The drama was always going to continue and a large portion of the 83, 625 fans on hand were soon out of their seats as Fifita put the Sharks back in front. The prop, a constant talking point throughout the finals, proved too powerful for a trio of Storm defenders as he wrestled his way to the line and then produced an outstretched right arm to get the ball down underneath the posts. Maloneys conversion was good, and it was the Sharks leading 14-12 with 10 minutes to play.The final few minutes produced some great drama, before the Storms final surge fell agonisingly short.Skipper Cameron Smith was the Storms best, making 72 tackles.We werent that good in the first half, we allowed Cronulla to have so much field position, Smith said.This team, theyre a special footy side. You have to give them credit for coming back when they did. They kept plugging away, they didnt panic and deserved the win.Unfortunately it didnt go our way. It was a great finish.We could have scored in the last 10 seconds, a great scrambling effort by the Sharkies, everyone who follows rugby league have got to be happy for the Sharks. Theyve been waiting a very long time for this.
