Truman was the president and the Phoenix metropolitan area was still two decades away from landing its first professional sports franchise.Well, it took 66 years, but the Cards are back in the rarefied air of a 9-1 record after their hard-fought 14-6 win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday at University of Phoenix. Drew Stanton, making the first start of his second stint as Arizona’s starting quarterback this season, threw two first-quarter touchdown passes and the defense held the Lions out of the end zone to push the Cardinals’ winning streak to six.
