Todd Heap has been looking forward to Arizona's game at Baltimore pretty much from the day he signed with the Cardinals.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt hopes Heap can play at least a limited role to help a Cardinals team that has lost five straight - 10 in a row on the road - and will be facing one of the game's best defenses.
