Oct. 6, 2013 at 8:35 PM

GLENDALE, Ariz., Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Linebacker Daryl Washington recorded nine tackles, two sacks and an interception Sunday, sparking the Arizona Cardinals' 22-6 win over Carolina.

Washington's efforts keyed a stellar defense by Arizona (3-2), which forced four turnovers.

Carson Palmer led the Cardinals on a 10-play, 85-yard drive late in the third period, capped by Rashard Mendenhall's 1-yard plunge, which gave them their first lead at 10-6.

On the next series, Calais Campbell sacked Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in his own end zone for a safety for a six-point advantage.

Arizona picked off Newton three times and forced him to lose a fumble with 2:38 remaining, which led to a 7-yard TD pass from Palmer (19-of-28, 175 yards, three interceptions) to Jim Dray.

Newton completed 21-of-39 attempts for 308 yards but didn't record a TD for Carolina (1-3).

Greg Olsen and Ted Ginn Jr. combined for nine catches for 157 yards for the Panthers.
