Falcons eliminated from playoffs

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals were no playoff pretenders.

Kurt Warner opened with a 42-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald and connected with Anquan Boldin on a 71-yard scoring play as the Cardinals beat Atlanta 30-24 Saturday before a raucous, white towel-waving crowd in the franchise's first home playoff game in 61 years.

Atlanta rookie Matt Ryan was intercepted twice, was tackled in the end zone for a safety and fumbled the ball away on a botched handoff. The fumble was returned 26 yards by Antrel Rolle 52 seconds into the second half to put Arizona ahead for good.

The Cardinals' Edgerrin James outgained Atlanta's Michael Turner, the NFL's No. 2 rusher.
