10. Arizona Cardinals (3-4) Last week: 10

There is so much talent in Arizona. That defense is good, folks. They are disciplined, aggressive, and sound. But they can only last for so long. The offense is just not there. I would like to place blame on Carson Palmer because, well, I mean he is playing like the usual Carson Palmer. But I think it comes down to play calling. Bruce Arians wants this high-powered attack for which they just don’t have the weapons. Fitzgerald is hurting with the hamstring. The best look going forward may be pounding the ball behind that big offensive line coupled with play action. Better figure it out with Atlanta’s porous defense in town this week.
