Arizona at New England Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, Mass. - TV: FOX; DirecTV: 706 *TV announcers: Dick Stockton, John Lynch, Jennifer Hale *Keys to the game: Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton unleashed an aggressive front seven and a wide assortment of blitzes against Seattle last week. That group gets to dig its teeth into another offensive line with some serious question marks. The difference in facing the Patriots is TEs Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. The dynamic duo each caught six passes at Tennessee, and QB Tom Brady's quick release and ability to attack the middle of the field could give Horton pause before dialing up a constant stream of blitzes. The Cardinals want to be physical on both sides of the ball, and featured RBs Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells last week. QB Kevin Kolb came off the bench in place of injured John Skelton Week 1 and was extremely efficient in one series in an up-tempo attack. The question will be how he f...

In the Patriots pass-happy world it has been Tom Brady, a plethora of wide receivers, and more recently his monster tight end combo that have been the apple of the fantasy world’s eye. The running back scene has been one to almost avoid. Coming off a 125 yard (152 total yards), one touchdown day from Stevan Ridley, perhaps it’s the dawn of a new day.
The Patriots remain...
The Arizona Cardinals have announced that starting quarterback John Skelton will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a low ankle sprain that he suffered during the team’s season opening win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Skelton went down after a less than stellar performance in his first three quarters of play, and he has to be the lest bit worried that even when he does come back...
There's good news and bad news for Arizona Cardinals fans. On the bright side, the Cardinals got the win in their season opener against the Seahawks. On the down side, the Cardinals' quarterback situation is still up in the air.

New England tight end Rob Gronkowski hauled in his first touchdown catch of the season Sunday against Tennessee.Fantasy Spin:Gronkowski caught all six passes that came his way and finished with 60 receiving yards. The Patriots didn't air the ball out as often as usual because they were ahead and also because Stevan Ridley was running the ball so effectively. Look for Gronkowski...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- To preserve a nail-biting 20-16 win over Seattle on Sunday, the Cardinals defense had to complete what seemed like three or four red-zone stands in the final minute.
Two pass interference penalties. Six plays after what could have been a turnover on downs. And, remarkably, a phantom timeout.
The defense came through, though, forcing Seahawks rookie quarterback...

Russell Wilson was slated to be the fifth rookie starter today.He wanted to show the world he belonged and I think the Seahawks liked what they saw against a good Arizona Cardinals' defense. Every time the Seahawks and Cardinals go at it the talons come out.You could tell after the first to plays provided big scrums afterwords that this would be a hard fought game. Here are...
Will the real CJ2K please stand up?
I don't know who was wearing No. 28 for the Titans on Sunday, but the Patriots managed to put a deathly end to Chris Johnson's proclamation that he'll lead the league in rushing this season.
In New England's 31-13 trouncing of Tennessee, we saw early investments from the 2012 draft class, particularly with Chandler...
