Arians: It's disappointing to lose at home

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he is disappointed in the team's discipline during the second half of the 24-22 loss to the Rams. "You’re not going to win very many games kicking field goals in the red zone and losing the turnover battle, especially in our division."


Cowboys (2-1) at Saints (0-3), 8:30 p.m. ET

The last time the Saints played at home against the Cowboys was in Week 10 of 2013 -- also on a Sunday night -- and they set a record with 40 1st downs in a 49-17 victory. But the 2015 Saints are a much different team and look to avoid their first 0-4 start since 2012. The Cowboys, on the other hand, go for a ninth straight NFC road win. Follow live

Saints QB Drew Brees is two TD passes shy of 400 for his career. He can become fifth QB in NFL history to reach that milestone, along with Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Tom Brady (who just hit 400 last week). ... Brees also needs 9 completions to reach 5,000 (third in NFL history).

BRONCOS 23, VIKINGS 20 (FINAL): In what was both an impressive comeback and a missed opportunity, the Vikings' struggles protecting Teddy Bridgewater loomed large. Bridgewater was sacked seven times in the loss, including two on the Vikings' final drive, and his impressive second half (13 of 15 for 131 yards) went for naught.

RAMS 24, CARDINALS 22 (FINAL): Just when the Rams needed the offense to pick up the slack, their slumbering run game came to life behind rookie RB Todd Gurley and WR Tavon Austin. Combined with a defense that held the Cardinals to field goals instead of touchdowns five times and came up with three takeaways, the Rams improved to 2-2 and 2-0 in the NFC West division.
