Andre Ellington had the breakout game for Arizona, but he's only half of what promises to be a solid rookie 1-2 punch at running back for the Cardinals.

The dynamic Ellington broke free on an 80-yard touchdown run in Arizona's 27-13 victory over Atlanta, while Stepfan Taylor did more of the dirty work inside. In his biggest run Taylor broke a host of tackles, powering his way 15 yards to the Falcons 17.

Of Arizona's 30 running plays on Sunday, Ellington and Taylor had 29. The only other was Carson Palmer's nine-yard scramble.

The Cardinals finished with 201 yards rushing, 154 by Ellington, and it will be interesting to see what coach Bruce Arians does with playing time once starter Rashard Mendenhall comes back from a toe injury.
