Season 4, Week 10: 2-6 Dragons try to right the ship at 2-6 Arizona

Whoa! Where did this kid come from? Actually, he made some noise in preseason, but this was a breakout game for RB3 Jimmy Perot, the 7th round pick out of the University of Tennessee and Sidney, Iowa.

After Arizona scored their second touchdown at the end of the first quarter, Perot took the first play of the second quarter 80 yards to the house. At the end of the third quarter, Perot answered another Cardinal score with a 64-yard touchdown streak.

Perot proved elusive, Corriveau scaled back the over-effort to play a solid game, and the Dragons came away from the desert with a 27-21 victory.

Season 4, Week 11: Division leading 6-3 Minnesota comes to 3-6 Des Moines

Back and forth, back and forth, 6 field goals, 5 touchdowns, no team having the lead for long. At the end of the 4th quarter, Corriveau leads the team 80 yards in 1:24, capping it off with a 24-yard TD strike to rookie WR Louis Forbes to take the lead. You see? This is what this team could be!

Alas, leaving 1:00 on the clock was just a bit too long. Minnesota capped a quick drive of their own with a 46-yard field goal as time expired, taking back the lead and dropping the Dragons into a heartbreaking 27-25 loss.
