With a win on Sunday, a 49ers blowout loss, an impressive Seahawks win, and yet another loss by the Rams, there's sure to be a different look in this week's power rankings. This weekend also saw many unexpected winners and underdogs get upsets as well. Last week the Cardinals averaged 18th on most power rankings. This week, they stay at an average of 18th - go figure.
One of these weeks, Beanie Wells will announce his arrival with a 100-yard rushing performance and a long-term spot in the Cards' offense. (Sando)
Fox Sports- 19th
THE BRIGHT SIDE: The offense will keep the Cardinals competitive throughout every game, as it showed in racing Arizona out to a 21-0 halftime lead over Houston in Week 5. THE FLIP SIDE: Unfortunately, this secondary will also keep opposing QBs in every game until the end — as demonstrated against the Texans, who stormed back to tie the game at 21-21 and nearly tied the game again in the final seconds.

CBS Sports- 17th
They beat the Texans, but the defense is still having issues. They have to get better on that side of the ball quickly. They also aren't running the ball at all.
Bleacher Report - 19th
The Cardinals blew a 21-0 lead before scoring a touchdown late to beat the Texans.
Walter Football - 19th
This little ranker is actually pretty interesting. It gathers data by have you pick the winners of match ups. It continues asking you match up after match up, and based on all the yahoo users data, it compiles the rankings(which seem quite accurate might I add).
