Sunday Morning Bloody Mary: The Division Games

Considering that the Arizona Cardinals don't take the field until tomorrow night, posting their injury report today wouldn't make much sense. Instead, I'll look at the remaining division games that take place later today. The Cardinals are clearly not the powerhouse of the division, but who really is? Seattle is the current leader, but aren't scaring anyone away from home. The Rams have wiped away the frightening memories from the last few seasons. They drafted a franchise quarterback who has revived life in their team. Be that as it may, their lack of big game experience hinders some of their talent.


Kansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks - Nothing more would make me happy then seeing the team that flattened the Cardinals one week ago do the same to the Hawks in front of their home crowd today. Luckily for Seattle, that crowd gives them a giant advantage. This game is extremely important for Seattle. The Chiefs are leading their division and are one of the best young teams in the league. A win today would give them a considerable division lead. It would also put their record above .500 and build some confidence after they've dropped 3 out of the last 4 games.

St. Louis Rams at Denver Broncos - The Rams travel to Denver in a very winnable contest. The Broncos are a reflection of the Cardinals this season, posting a disappointing 3-7 record after the high expectations they held heading into this season. With a Seattle loss and a Rams victory today, St. Louis would take the division lead(they defeated the Seahawks earlier this season). With Denver's dangerous 1-2 punch of Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd, the Rams secondary will need to be at the top of it's game to pull out the victory.

Be sure to watch today's division games with hopes that both teams lose. After all, it would strengthen that sliver of of hope that the Cardinals could still win the division. Stranger things have happened in the NFL.
