The Arizona Cardinals are coming off of two excellent weeks of football. They beat the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle and beat a one loss Cincinnati Bengal team while both games were televised nationally on Sunday Night Football.
The Cardinals are now 8-2 and lead the NFC West by three games. They also have theirs set on one of the top seeds in the playoffs. If that happens it will guarantee the Cardinals a first round bye and home game in the playoffs.
The Cardinals are led by quarterback Carson Palmer, who is quietly becoming a favorite for league MVP. Had Palmer not gotten injured last season the Cardinals may be looking for their second consecutive trip to the Super Bowl.
Palmer and the Cardinals are now staring to get noticed by national media. They have appeared in many NFL power rankings. But most importantly teams are gaming planning differently when they play the Cardinals. They are no longer a team that relies on their defense to win games. The offense has carried the team and they are proving so by being one of the highest scoring teams in the league.
The Cardinals are truly playing like a team and if they continue to do so they will be hoisting the NFL Tittle in February!
