Cards' defense shines in error-filled win over Panthers

Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Rashard Mendenhall and Jim Dray scored the game's only touchdowns as the Arizona Cardinals held the Carolina Panthers out of the end zone in 22-6 victory.

The Cardinals (3-2) survived three Carson Palmer interceptions with a dominant defensive effort that was highlighted by four forced turnovers, seven sacks and a safety. Daryl Washington, in his first game back from a four-week suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, finished with nine tackles, two sacks and an interception in Arizona's second straight win.

Palmer threw for just 175 yards with a touchdown on 19-of-28 passing, while Cam Newton completed 21-of-39 throws for 308 yards for the Panthers (1-3), who were coming off a bye week following a 38-0 thrashing of the New York Giants.

Newton did not resemble the quarterback that threw for 422 yards and totaled three touchdowns in his pro debut at University of Phoenix Stadium two years ago. He was pressured throughout and threw three interceptions while losing a fumble.
