With a big time victory over the San Francisco 49ers, it is no wonder that three different Arizona Cardinals made the week 14 Pro Football Focus 'All-PFF Team'. Each player is given a grade, along with a synopsis of why they earned the recognition that they did.

After the jump, find out which players made the list and what they did to earn it.

Obviously, Larry Fitzgerald was one of the players to make the list after logging a spectacular day. He had seven receptions, 149 yards receiving and a touchdown. He made two crucial plays, one of which not only prevented an interception, but provided points for his team. PFF gave him a score of +3.3, tied with the Steelers' Antonio Brown.

Moving on to the side of the ball that made the real difference, both Calais Campbell and Adrian Wilson made the list this week. Campbell scored a +3.6, trailing only Stephen Bowen from the Redskins as a 3-4 defensive lineman. He had two tackles, a sack and two deflected passes. The guy pretty much does it all and as PFF states, he, "put forth another display that will help him get his payday."

Wilson was all over the field on Sunday. PFF ranked him above all other safeties this week, netting a score of +4.0. He had a chance at a couple of interceptions, but unfortunately couldn't come up with any. Still, Wilson could be seen either near the line of scrimmage or even deep in the secondary. He had two tackles and a defended pass.

One other player from the game made the list, but he was a 49er. Rookie linebacker Aldon Smith had a sack, four tackles, four hurries and a forced fumble against the Cards. He scored a +3.3, falling just short of Tamba Hali's +3.5 score. He is definitely becoming a big pass rushing threat for San Francisco and it will be interesting to see how the first round draft pick develops over the years.

ESPN analyst Merril Hoge tweeted yesterday that the Cards' defense looks like it is playing with 15 players while watching them on tape. The Cardinals have definitely turned things around and it seems that everyone is beginning to take notice.
