The preseason has officially come to a close. Every team in the NFC West won their game this week, including the Arizona Cardinals when they defeated the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.

The intelligence report on the St. Louis Rams from Sando. Take a look at the fourth point because I think that is what sinks the Rams this season and allows the Cardinals to take the division. That is a tough stretch for a young quarterback to endure.
