Arizona Cardinals Power Rankings Round Up

With week two pretty much over and done with, here's one last look at where the Cardinals stand in most web site's power rankings. The Cardinals never amounted higher then 5th all of last year with ESPN's power rankings, so why am I not surprised that they've slipped a spot after winning a game on Sunday?

ESPN
From #17 to #18

Beating the Colts at home in Week 3 would validate the Cardinals' blowout victory at Jacksonville while potentially forcing a tie atop the NFC West.


Yahoo
#15

Did Todd Haley sneak back to the desert to scream at the Cardinals’ offensive players last week, or did Ken Whisenhunt’s threat to bench people who commit penalties do the trick?


CBS
From #18 to #17

Kurt Warner and the offense played well against Jacksonville, with Warner doing what he wanted, and now might have to get in a shootout with Peyton Manning. Lots of passing that night will make for a fun game. 

 

 


FOX
From #10 to #14

NO WORRIES: Take that, Jimmy Johnson and Michael Strahan. The two FOX NFL Sunday analysts strongly declared Arizona's season over before kickoff in Week 2, but the Cards looked like their playoff selves in wrecking the Jaguars.

 
Sporting News
From #19 to #17

How Kurt Warner fares vs. the Colts' pass rush will be interesting Sunday night.


Pro Football Weekly
#17

Fitting that Warner tosses NFL's all-time most accurate game.
