NFL Stat of the Week

In yesterday's 51-45 NFC Wildcard playoff victory over the Green Bay Packers, the Arizona Cardinals ran 57 offensive plays, racking up 531 total yards.  Peter King points out that quarterback Kurt Warner, who was 29/33 for 379 yards, 5 touchdowns and no interceptions, had more touchdown passes than he did incompletions!   Still, there's a more amazing stat lurking in the box score: Arizona was 3 for 5 on third down conversions.  They scored 51 points while only facing third down FIVE times!   Incredible.
