Hightower's turnover could be a sign

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Tim Hightower's lost fumble on the Cardinals' first possession against Minnesota set up the Vikings for their first touchdown.

The Cardinals are 19-1 under Ken Whisenhunt, counting playoffs, when they win the turnover battle. They are 2-17 when they lose the turnover battle and 6-2 when turnovers are even.

Update: Steve Breaston's long punt return might have bailed out Hightower.
