On Sunday, the Cardinals travel to New England to meet the (9-5) Patriots who are struggling for a playoff spot in the very tight AFC East. Currently, the Pats, the Jets, and the Dolphins are all tied atop the division. While Arizona has already clinched the NFC West, they are looking to improve their seeding, but failed miserably last week at home vs. Minnesota.
New England has won the last 4 meetings vs. the Cardinals.
Of note, Steve Breaston needs only 91 more yards to join teammates Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald with 1,000+ yd season this year. If he makes it, Arizona would be only the 5th team in history to have (3) 1000+yd receivers in a single year.
But of course, New England – who is 22-2 in December since 2003 has a group of now-healthy RBs who ran all over Oakland last week.
As long as the “good” Cardinals’ defense shows up (you know, the one that played against Dallas) and if Warner doesn’t toss any INTs, Arizona has a great chance of beating the Patriots and (hopefully, for us Patsie haters) keep New England out of the playoffs!
