It's going to be one long bye week for the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals cut a 17-point deficit to a touchdown late in the third quarter, only to give up a 72-yard score less than a minute later that sealed their fifth straight loss.
Arizona (4-5) would pick up just one first down the rest of the game, a 31-17 Green Bay victory, and will spend the next week wondering how it let so many chances slip away.
''That's like a broken record. If you look at our five games that we've lost - which is extremely disappointing - the one thing that's consistent is that we've had opportunities to make plays and we haven't done it,'' Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. ''Green Bay's a good football team. But today, in my opinion, was as much about what we didn't do as what they did do.''
John Skelton threw for 306 yards, and he was able to find enough holes in the Green Bay defense for big gains time and again.

Cardinals outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield tweeted Monday night that he will miss the remainder of the season.
I'm out for the season. I'm sorry Cardinal fans. But I will be back and stronger then ever. This yr was just a preview of why is to Come. O'Brien (@Ob_Scho) November 6, 2012

Cardinals HC Ken Whisenhunt told reporters on Monday that he expects to have QB Kevin Kolb back “sooner rather than later,” but wouldn’t offer a specific timetable for his return, per Darren Urban.
Kolb has been out for a few weeks now with a number of injuries. Since John Skelton has taken over, Arizona has dropped four straight games with Skelton producing 2 passing touchdowns...
The Cardinals are going to give rookie Nate Potter a shot at left tackle, and coach Ken Whisenhunt says more changes might be coming as Arizona looks to end a five-game losing streak.
A seventh-round draft pick out of Boise State, Potter entered Sunday's game at Green Bay in the second quarter, replacing D'Anthony Batiste. Whisenhunt says he was ''very impressed...
Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd will see his playing time increase, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.Fantasy Spin:At this point we can't see Floyd getting enough opportunities to have any fantasy value this season. He's still sitting behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet. And of course his quarterback is either John Skelton or Kevin Kolb.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Cardinals running back Beanie Wells is expected to return to practice next week and play in their November 25th game against the Rams.
The Cardinals running game has been struggling...
ON THIS SATURDAY, it seemed that the real show started after the game ended. Mike Leach’s postgame remarks were explosive, accusatory and, in their own right, just as big of a disaster as his team’s 49-6 loss at Utah. The Utes outgained the Cougars 453 to 255 in total yards as the hapless crew from the Palouse gave up six sacks and tallied negative-4 rushing yards.
This win for the Packers is more proof that their slow start to the season is nothing to worry about and they are back in the running for the Super Bowl. On the other side, this loss for the Cardinals also proved something about their fast start to the season, it was a fluke. After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals have since lost five straight games and are no longer in...
