In a game muddled with mistakes and penalties, the Arizona Cardinals didn't really show their capabilities until the last quarter of the game with an encouraging drive that left them 6 points behind with more than 7 minutes left to play. Then the Cardinals took the lead for the first time in the game, only to allow a touchdown by the Steelers with less than a minute to go.
