The Lions defense would come through again in the second quarter when safety Glover Quin intercepted another Palmer overthrow.
The 22-year-old, who played his college football at the University of MS, was selected by Arizona in the first round (29th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Cardinals' offense looked pretty terrible even with Johnson in the backfield.
What I liked:Golden Tate. Back-up Dwayne Washington was slightly more successful, gaining 22 rushing yards on just six attempts. His ability to turn small receptions into big gains opens up Detroit's offense.
It wasn't all good news for Detroit, as their ground game struggled against the Cardinals stout front seven.
The Cardinals suffered a scare during Sunday's 35-23 loss to the Lions when star running back David Johnson left the game during the second half with a wrist injury. The Lions secondary also played well, contributing three interceptions and keeping Arizona's receivers from hurting them. The Lions defense might be better than expected.
Ironically, the two teams both faced Super Bowl competitors in Week 3 preseason. He was replaced on kickoff returns in the second half by Agnew. Punter Kasey Redfern dropped a snap in the Lions end zone and was injured when he then tried to run for the first down. Plus, he didn't get into the end zone in a season opener for the first time in his career.
Arizona is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 campaign which saw the team go 7-8-1 a year after winning 13 games and making it all the way to the NFC Championship Game.
Stafford finished the day completing 29 of his 41 passes for 291 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
