After being down 10-0 in the first quarter, the Cardinals scored two touchdowns in the second to be up 14-10.

Then, Arizona running back James Conner went off with a knee injury, though the play in which the injury occur is unknown.

Knowing how crucial Conner playing for the Cardinals is, fans were distressed when the injury happened.

Before today, Arizona quarterback Josh Dobbs hasn’t thrown an interception this season.

That all changed as he had two, including a “pick-6.”

At the end of the second quarter, Dobbs threw the ball right to Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase for a touchdown.

Because of Dobbs showing, Cardinals injured quarterback Kyler Murray was trending on social media again with some fans hoping he comes back soon.

Back on Oct. 6, Murray’s name was popping up all over the internet after a report that people outside of the Cardinals organization believe the quarterback’s days in Arizona are numbered.

Down 24-14 in the third quarter after another Chase touchdown for the Bengals, Cardinals running back Emari Demercado scored his first touchdown of the season with an 11 yd. run.

Then, Arizona kicker Matt Prater missed the extra-point and the Cardinals were down by only 4, 24-20.

The Bengals offense got 10 more points and Cincinnati left Arizona with a 34-20 victory.

Even after the loss, however, optimism about the Cardinals future beyond this season was voiced by the community.

Next game, the Cardinals will head to SoFi Stadium against the Los Angeles Rams on Oct. 15.
