Arizona Cardinals Fly Around the NFC West

The Arizona Cardinals hold a two game lead in the NFC West after last weekends games and they'll have a chance to put some more distance between themselves the competition this Sunday. The next three weeks for Cardinals could very well determine whether we spend the final weeks of the season talking about playing seeding or fighting for the division.

NFC West Standings

Arizona 4 3 0 200 171
St. Louis 2 5 0 112 201
Seattle 2 5 0 144 184

San Francisco: In case you haven't noticed the drama going on the Bay area, it's worth a look. Mike Singletary took over as coach and in just one short week he's sent an underachieving first round pick to the showers (during a game), had a pretty good post game rant and benched his starting QB. They've also got their first draft article up which is normally a sure sign that the season is going down the drain. They've got a bye week to shore up several areas before they travel to Arizona for a Monday night tilt.

Next Three: @Arizona, St. Louis, @ Dallas

Seattle: The Hawks picked up their second win of the season last week against the Niners and they vaulted to second place in the division at 2-5. They got a much better game from Seneca Wallace who didn't turn the ball over but the real hero of the game was Leonard Weaver who had four receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns. It's likely that Matt Hasselbeck still won't be healthy this week and that means Seneca Wallace will make his third consecutive start.

Next Three: Philly, @Miami, Arizona

St. Louis: The Rams suffered a close loss, that they haven't fully accepted yet, to the Pats on Sunday. They led the game in the fourth quarter but 10 straight points by the Pats led to a seven point loss. The Rams have been a completely different team the past three weeks and there is some hope that if they improve in the red zone and on third downs, that they can compete for the division.

Next Three: Arizona, @ Jets, San Francisco
