Kenyan Drake has career day that includes four rushing TDs.

After six consecutive losses, Kliff Kingsbury and his Arizona Cardinals finally have something to celebrate.

Behind a dominant rushing attack that tallied 226 yards on the ground, Arizona steamrolled the visiting Browns by the final of 38-24.

The Cardinals set the tempo early, producing seven on the game’s opening drive that saw the birds go 90 yards on 10 plays.

Watch: Jarvis Landry appears to have words with Freddie Kitchens on sideline

The Cleveland Browns had yet another uninspiring performance on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, and Jarvis Landry did not look thrilled with head coach Freddie Kitchens at one point late in the game. After one of Cleveland’s drives stalled in the fourth quarter, Landry had a brief conversation with Kitchens on the sideline. While we don’t know exactly what was said, it certainly appeared that the star receiver was ripping into Kitchens. Kitchens has been in over his head all...

Arizona Cardinals get win in home finale over Cleveland Browns

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It was what we have been waiting for all season and for the first time this year, the Arizona Cardinals looked like a team that not only knew how to play, but knew how to win.

They did so in dominant fashion, with a 38-24 win over the Cleveland Browns.

After a completely lopsided loss to the Los Angeles Rams following a bye week, then a heart-breaker where your rookie quarterback played his worst career game, you saw a team that looked confident.

You saw a...

Arizona Cardinals vs Cleveland Browns second half open thread

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It was one of the better first half performances of the season as the Arizona Cardinals go into halftime with a 21-10 lead.

Kyler Murray threw an interception in his own territory, but for the first time this season, we have seen the Cardinals defense show up.

Murray finished the half 12/15 for 154 yards and one touchdown, a beautiful throw to Dan Arnold in the endzone and one touchdown, an underthrown (from a touch standpoint) pick to Charles Clay.

It is the final home game of the 2019 NFL season for the Arizona Cardinals.

It may be the final home game of the career for one Larry Fitzgerald.

These are the things that we weigh as for the final time in 2019, we have a chance to watch the Arizona Cardinals at home.

It is likely to be a large contingent of Browns fans out at the stadium this week, so be prepared.

For those at home, enjoy the game and let’s hope we get one more strong performance this...

Notes from the Enemy: Browns look to finish strong, Mayfield on OBJ, Steve Wilks defense and more

Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

An interesting matchup to close out the 2019 home slate for the Arizona Cardinals.

They get a chance to take on two former coaches in Freddie Kitchens and 2018 head coach Steve Wilks.

They get to face what was supposed to be one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL and they average 0.1 more points per game than the Cardinals and only 23 more yards per game of offense.

The biggest difference has been the Browns defense has bailed them out in a number of...

It is a big game on Sunday.

The Arizona Cardinals are in hosting their last football game of the 2019 season, which mean it is the last time you can see Kyler Murray live, but it could also be the last time you see Larry Fitzgerald play at home.

Just-released Terrell Suggs only to play for Ravens?

An interesting showdown is setting up between pass-rusher Terrell Suggs and NFL teams. Suggs, released earlier this week, only wants to play for the Ravens and will “strongly consider” not reporting to other teams who claim him, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Suggs started his career with the team, and wants to return to Baltimore to finish it out. The only problem is that since the Ravens have the league’s best record they have the lowest priority waiver claim, so all 31...

Report: Terrell Suggs unlikely to report to any team but Ravens

Terrell Suggs is going to cause some difficulties if any NFL team but one claims him on waivers, according to a report. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday that Suggs, who was surprisingly waived by the Cardinals on Friday, will strongly consider not reporting to any team that claims him unless it’s the Baltimore Ravens. This presents a significant difficulty. The Ravens have the last waiver claim right now, meaning 31 other teams will have the chance to claim Suggs first. It remains...

The Arizona Cardinals have treated Kenyan Drake as a starter ever since they acquired him from the Miami Dolphins via trade.

Through the five games he played so far in a Cardinals uniform, Drake had 65 carries, 280 rushing yards, and one touchdown. He also caught 21 passes for 121 receiving yards.

Let’s take a look at how he performed game by game:
