Papas totaled three solo tackles and four overall, including two for loss. The Massachusetts native also forced a fumble and scored his first career touchdown.
After McDaniel received the second half kick-off and went three-and-out, Ben Powers blocked a Green Terror punt and Papas fell on the ball in the end zone to put the Cardinals in front 31-16.
