Shay returns interception for TD, Lions beat Arizona 17-3
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — It's an NFL cliche, the crafty cornerback fooling the rookie quarterback.
That's exactly what happened in the biggest play of Detroit's 17-3 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Darius Slay, who tied for the lead in the NFL with eight interceptions last season, stepped in front of intended receiver Trent Sherfield, picked off Rosen's pass and returned it 67 yards for the game's first touchdown, putting his team up 10-0 in the third quarter.
Except for Fitz, Cardinals feature very young WR group
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The first 53-man roster for Steve Wilks as coach of the Arizona Cardinals includes a very young receiving group.
With the exception, of course, of Larry Fitzgerald, who turned 35 over the weekend.
The other four at the position are rookies Christian Kirk and Trent Sherfield, second-year player Chad Williams and fourth-year pro J.J. Nelson.
The team released five-year NFL veteran Brice Butler and Greg Little, who was trying to get back in the NFL after a three-year absence.
After Fitz, receivers a big question mark for Cardinals
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have one of the best wide receivers to play the game but, beyond Larry Fitzgerald, the position is a major question mark for the team under first-year coach Steve Wilks.
The names of those competing for playing time and/or just a spot on the 53-man roster are hardly that familiar: Brice Butler, J.J. Nelson, Chad Williams, Greg Little, Christian Kirk and Trent Sherfield, among others.
Underrated is a good word to describe the group, the coach said.
Vanderbilt tops W Kentucky 31-17
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kyle Shurmur hit Trent Sherfield on a 4-yard scoring pass on Vanderbilt's opening drive and the Commodores never trailed in a 31-17 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday.
Shurmur passed for two touchdowns and the Commodores rushed for two more, including Sherfield's 45-yard run with 48 seconds left in the third quarter.
It was the final non-conference game of the season for both teams.
