I don’t usually believe in natural omens, but if ever there was an existence of such a phenomenon, the first play of Sunday’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears was such an example. The Cardinals’ David Johnson returned the opening kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown and an early 7-0 lead.

Early scores don’t make or break games, of course, and the Bears proved just that by throwing a steady dose of offense at the Cardinals for the next quarter and a half, going tit-for-tat with the Carson Palmer-led squad deep into the second quarter. But after a Jay Cutler interception and subsequent hamstring injury that knocked him out of the ball game, the Cardinals just pulled away.
