The touchdown did not count, but theCardinals took over on the Browns’ 5-yard line. Three plays later, JayFeely booted the tying field goal from 33 yards away.“Yes, it was a big point of emphasis that we try and get a turnover,”Whisenhunt said. “Adrian [Wilson] was close on a couple of balls today.So was Kerry [Rhodes], but it’s nice to actually get one and where we gotthat was critical. I mean it was huge for us in that game.”The Cardinals came into the game near the bottom of the league intakeaways with only 6 fumble recoveries and 9 interceptions. Today’slone turnover was certainly the biggest of the season.“The second sack I got was a game I ran with [Darnell] Dockett,”Schofield said. “He did a really good job of pinning the guy in so I wasable to come in pretty clean and get the sack.”After describing that play to the media, Dockett had a little fun with hisyounger teammate. “That’s right, you tell them your stepdaddy helpedyou,” he yelled out across the crowded locker room.
