The first half of the Cardinals' "Thursday Night Football" matchup against the Saints featured more offensive troubles for Kyler Murray and the Cardinals.

Cardinals were fortunate that their defence came through when they most needed it.

In the dying seconds of the first half, Arizona made Andy Dalton throw back-to-back pick-sixes, which turned the game around.

The Cardinals now led by 14 points going into the locker room, setting off wild celebrations at State Farm Stadium.

The Cardinals (3-4) eventually rolled to a 42-34 victory as the Saints (2-5) were never able to fully recover from the shocking momentum shift.

DeAndre Hopkins showed good form in his first game back after a suspension, completing the night with 10 receptions for 103 yards.

Murray had one passing touchdown and no interceptions while completing 20 of 29 attempts for 204 total yards. On seven carries, he gained 30 yards running as well. 

Coach Kliff Kingsbury of the Cardinals, who had come under scrutiny after the team's shaky start, was somewhat relieved by the victory.
