  • RB Julius Jones suffered a broken rib, and he was at the hospital by the second half. Coach Jim Mora said Jones will remain at the Phoenix hospital overnight. There is nothing life-threatening but he obviously suffered a significant injury.

    Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jones has bleeding in his lung, which is why he was kept overnight.

  • The question has come up repeatedly regarding the down-and-distance situation in the third quarter. Cardinals ball, second-and-2 at the Seattle 7. Kurt Warner passed to Larry Fitzgerald for a 4-yard gain. There was a dead-ball personal foul called against Beanie Wells after the play. That pushed Arizona back 15 yards.

    Now, there was a question from some readers about whether it should have been first-and-goal from the 19 or first-and-10 from the 19.
