Quick Take: Cardinals Rolle to win

It was over when ...
Antrel Rolle intercepted Carson Palmer's pass with 46 seconds remaining in the game. Rolle had three interceptions, and returned the first two for touchdowns. His third went for a score as well, but the return was nullified by a penalty.

Game balls
Rolle's timing was impeccable. His first touchdown came moments after Neil Rackers missed a 54-yard field goal with the Bengals leading 7-0 and threatening to take control of the game. Rolle's second interception return for a touchdown came late in the third quarter with the Bengals moving into Cardinals territory and his team clinging to a one-point lead.

Key stat
The Cardinals intercepted Palmer four times in all, but more importantly, quarterback Kurt Warner did not have an interception or a fumble. The Cardinals have 10 takeaways in their past two games.

At 5-5, the Cardinals kept pressure on the Seahawks in the NFC West race. The Cardinals equaled their win total from each of the past two seasons... Rolle had two career interceptions prior to Sunday... Warner completed 16 passes for 211 yards and a pair of touchdowns. One of those completions was a toss with his injured left arm to tight end Leonard Pope, who rumbled 22 yards for a first down.
