Delhomme hurt in Carolina's 34-21 victory

By  | 

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Carolina earned a measure of revenge in Arizona, even if the stakes weren't quite as high.

Jake Delhomme, whose downward spiral began with a playoff loss at home against Arizona last season, threw a 50-yard touchdown pass before leaving with a chest injury and Jonathan Stewart ran for two scores in Carolina's 34-21 victory that dropped the Cardinals to 1-3 at home this season.

The Panthers, in a turnover-free performance, rolled up 270 yards on the ground against what had been the No. 1 rushing defense in the NFL.

Arizona's Kurt Warner was intercepted five times and fumbled the ball away once. Julius Peppers returned one of the picks 13 yards for a touchdown.
