Warner

Kurt Warner has tossed a touchdown pass in 13 consecutive games for the Cardinals, the fourth-longest streak in franchise history. Johnny Unitas holds the NFL record at 47 games, one of the most impressive records in league history.

Neil Lomax holds the Cardinals record. He tossed a touchdown pass in 19 consecutive games over the 1983 and 1984 seasons. Charley Johnson made it 16 games in 1964 and 1965. The Cardinals have won eight of 13 games during Warner's current streak.

Warner was particularly tough in key situations during a 41-17 victory over the Bills. He completed 9 of 10 passes for 75 yards on third down. Rookie running back Tim Hightower also did his part, running twice for 23 yards and a touchdown on third down. Hightower was now 3-for-3 in converting short-yardage situations on third and fourth downs against the Bills.
