The Arizona Cardinals defense turned the game around just before halftime 

with a pick-six on consecutive drives from quarterback Andy Dalton, 

and the team continued to gas in the second half to beat the New Orleans Saints 42-34.

The Cardinals' 42 points are the most since Week 17 of 2016 and

 the most under coach Cliff Kingsbury. 

The win broke Arizona's eight-game losing streak,

 the team's longest home loss since 1940.

The Cardinals needed this win badly. They started 2-4, 

had a poor offense and were on the verge of a pre-season tailspin.
