I'm writing this after seeing the scores of Sunday's games in week 12. The Seahawks have lost and the Rams have won. No matter what the result of Monday Night's game against the 49ers will be, a team with a losing record will be in the lead of the NFC West, which is possibly the worst division in all of football right now.
However, this situation presents a unique opportunity for the Arizona Cardinals in that they have a chance to go 4-7 and be exactly one game back of the Rams and Seahawks for the division title. This, of course, is dependent on the fact that the Cardinals actually win the game. But considering how abysmal this team has been during the course of its losing streak, it's amazing to me that we could see them "In the Hunt" before long when most people (including myself) had written their entire season off.
I'm going to make a bold prediction for Monday night's game: if Arizona wants to win, they need to leave Derek Anderson on the bench. If he starts, they're going to lose.
What do you all think?
