Arizona Cardinals 2014 Season: Cardinals vs Giants

Mandatory Credit: The Arizona Cardinals capped off a short week with a trip to the East Coast. In years past that would be a recipe for disaster right? Not the case this week. While Arizona may not have been on the same page for much of the middle portion of the game, the team managed to come together late, in much the same fashion as last week. Carson Palmer was...

Corners hold key to Cardinals' defensive success

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals defense is going to bring plenty of pressure this season. It did on Monday night against the Chargers in critical situations, and it did more than any team in the NFL last season, according to Pro Football Focus. The danger in that game plan is the burden it places on the cornerbacks, who are often left on the proverbial island to defend receivers one...

Arizona Cardinals 2014 Season: Cardinals vs Chargers

Cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie and Jerraud Powers force an incomplete pass.

AP Photo/G. Newman Lowrance With every offseason comes change. Players come and players go. Every team evaluates the talent they have in an attempt to make them the talent they had, in exchange for roster spots to be filled by rookies, free agents, or to give players you already have the opportunity to help the team. Some players are cut, some are demoted. All in the name of improving...

Cards' free-agency look: Cornerback

There is one certainty at cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals in 2014. That is Patrick Peterson. The three-time Pro Bowl corner enters his fourth season as one of the foundations of the Cards’ defense. He will for sure be on one side of the field, lining up across the opponent’s best receiver. But it's unclear who will start opposite Peterson. Last season it was Jerraud...

Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 13 NFL Power Rankings (#10)

Last week: 14 (+4) Record: 7-4 The Cardinals would definitely be in the playoffs in the AFC, but they’re going to have a hard time getting in as a wild card in the NFC. The 49ers hold the tiebreaker and are the better team, while the Saints and Panthers will probably both get in and both could win 12 games. The Cardinals could end up with 10 wins. It wouldn’t surprise me. However...
