Jake Delhomme threw two touchdown passes to Steve Smith, one for 65 yards in the first half and a four-yarder with 6 minutes 54 seconds left to give visiting Carolina a come-from-behind win over Arizona.
Arizona, leading 20-10 after three quarters, had the ball twice after Carolina's go-ahead score.
The Cardinals drove to the Panthers 33-yard line, but Marlon McCree intercepted Josh McCown's pass in the end zone for the second time in the game. The Cardinals' last shot ended when McCown scrambled on fourth and 10 but came up inches short at the Panthers 49.
McCown completed 29 of 46 for 394 yards, a career high for the second week in a row. McCown threw for 385 yards a week earlier in the victory over San Francisco in Mexico City, a game he started in place of injured Kurt Warner.
Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald became the first Cardinals tandem to top 100 yards receiving each in consecutive games.
