Arizona Cardinals (4-3)
What they’ve done well: The Cardinals have a couple of big-play receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin and a gutsy/aging quarterback in Kurt Warner. But one thing coach Ken Whisenhunt also has is an effective defense, which has continued to grow since Arizona's surprising run to the Super Bowl last season. Beating the Giants on the road in Week 7 was confirmation of that. The Cardinals are playing well against the run, giving up an average of 96.4 yards per game, 9th in the league.
Needs improvement: The Cardinals have a hard time sustaining their effort from week to week. After a playing a tough, gutsy and emotional game against the Giants and coming away with the win, they came home and dropped a 34-21 decision to the Panthers. In the game, Warner threw five interceptions and the Cardinals also lost a fumble. Arizona has more turnovers than takeaways this season.
