Against Dallas, there were three completions of 20 yards or more. Acho said he saw improvement Monday, but consistency is the goal for coordinator Todd Bowles’ defense.“It went well, but there’s still a lot we need to clean up and we’ve got to start putting together good days so we can consistently be a good team.”Acho and the Cardinals’ defense will get another opportunity to improve Saturday night when the San Diego Chargers pay them a visit in Glendale for their third preseason game. Former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is the new offensive coordinator in San Diego, and the Chargers have struggled in their first two preseason tilts. In losses to Seattle and Chicago, the Chargers have averaged 310.5 yards per contest, but have turned the ball over six times and allowed eight quarterback sacks. last_img read more
