'Embarrassed' Cardinals try to shake off ugly loss

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt says his team is "embarrassed" by its 34-point loss to the Atlanta Falcons but he believes the team can correct its mountain of mistakes.

Whisenhunt said Monday that he tries not to get too excited when his team wins or too upset when it loses. The best thing the Cardinals can do after the 41-7 thrashing, he said, is "learn from that and get prepared to play this week."

Arizona takes a 1-1 record into its home opener Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. The teams have one thing in common. Each has beaten the St. Louis Rams for its only victory.

Running back Beanie Wells has missed both games because of what the team says is a bruised right knee.
