Two defensive-minded teams with sub-par quarterbacks produced the lowest-scoring game of the season last night. The Arizona Cardinals improved to 11-3 without scoring a touchdown, winning in St. Louis 12-6.
The Rams have been especially strong, as they are coming off back-to-back shutouts. While three in a row does not look likely, they could very well hold the visitor to less than two touchdowns.
The St. Louis Rams aren’t necessarily out of the playoff race, but one more loss could get them to that point. The Arizona Cardinals have struggled a little since Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending injury. Now, the two NFC West teams are going to battle it out on “Thursday Night Football” and CBS Sports’ Dan Fouts talked about how important the game is for both.
A win Thursday could put Arizona in the playoffs for the first time in five seasons; the simplest combination involves Dallas and Philadelphia not tying.
Considered the NFL’s best division heading into the season, the NFC West is not disappointing. The top three contenders from the sector, Arizona, Seattle and San Fran, all were winners Sunday.
From players to referees to fans, everyone is getting in on the Week 9 action…but maybe not in the way they imagined. Here’s 5 people who were in the right (or wrong) place at the right time…
The Colts, you loved them right? I sure did. What happens on Sunday? They get demolished by the Steelers and the most underappreciated QB in the NFL.

Plus, Jerry lets us know what else is going on in sports in another hilarious and informative update.
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer head-butted his wife and broke her nose after she refused his sexual advances, and punched her in the face the next day, police said Thursday.
The news just keeps getting worse for the NFL. On Wednesday the reeling league was hit with another scandal when the Arizona Cardinals’ Jonathan Dwyer was reportedly arrested for an attack on a woman.
Turnovers. Penalties. Missed tackles. Little offense. All the ingredients are in place for Big Blue to miss the playoffs for a third straight season, and even possibly match last season’s 0-6 start.
Ted Ginn Jr. ran 71 yards on a punt return for a go-ahead fourth-quarter touchdown and the Arizona Cardinals beat the error-prone New York Giants 25-14 Sunday.
After posting opposite results in their respective nationally televised games, the teams meet Sunday as the suddenly desperate Giants limp into their home opener.
The New York Giants head into their home opener relatively healthy, with the exception of punter Steve Weatherford, who suffered torn ligaments in his ankle against Detroit on Monday. For the Arizona Cardinals, starting running back Andre Ellington has not practiced much this week, and quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable with a sore right shoulder.
