Schrager's Week 9 Cheat Sheet: Cardinals D set for coming-out party

On Jan. 2, 1999, a 9-7 Arizona Cardinals team that was outscored by opponents in the regular season 378-325 went into Texas Stadium and beat the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys 20-7 in the wild card round.

Suns, Lakers rue the loss of Nash
