The Cardinals haven't let frustrations drag them down against the Giants.

The Giants got a lucky bounce on that long touchdown reception. The Cardinals' Adrian Wilson probably should have had an interception.

Kurt Warner missed Larry Fiztgerald in the end zone. Warner failed to see an open Anquan Boldin, also in the end zone. Tim Hightower lost a fumble.

I take it as a sign of maturity that Arizona has persevered through these setbacks to take a 17-14 lead in the third quarter against this team, at this venue.
