Contrary to popular belief, Honey Badger may care.

Arizona Cardinals rookie Tyrann Mathieu certainly looked concerned and invested when he chased down St. Louis Rams tight end Jared Cook to prevent what appeared to be a no-doubt touchdown. Cook was seemingly running free to the end zone after catching a pass from Sam Bradford on a 1st-and-10 play that began at the Rams' 45-yard line. As Cook got inside the Cardinals' 10-yard line, the Honey Badger arrived just in time to punch the ball loose. Karlos Dansby recovered the fumble for the Cardinals.
