Cards offense out of sync in Bengals loss

GLENDALE, AZ (AP) - Cincinnati's Terence Newman returned an interception 54 yards for the only touchdown by either team's starters and the Bengals went on to a 19-13 preseason victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night.

The Birds first team offense was a tad off as Carson Palmer went just 7-of-19 for 92 yards.

Wide receiver Michael Floyd could not make a diving catch on a first quarter deep ball from Palmer and then on the very next play the QB overthrew the Floyd on a wide open touchdown play.

Head coach Bruce Arians indicated after the game that veteran Larry Fitzgerald ran the wrong route on the play that led to Newman's pick six.

Mike Nugent added field goals of 48 and 36 yards for Cincinnati (1-2).

Jay Feely, competing with rookie Chandler Catanzaro for the Cardinals' kicking job, made a 24-yarder but missed from 48 yards. Catanzaro made a 23-yard attempt.

The Cardinals (1-2) got their lone touchdown on a 30-yard pass from backup Drew Stanton to rookie John Brown with 1:29 left in the third quarter, tying it at 13-13.

Cincinnati backup Quinn Sharp kicked field goals of 34 and 51 yards after that for the deciding margin.
