The Arizona Cardinals will go into week 12 at 6-4 and just one game out of a playoff spot.  The seventh position is just fine right now.  The teams ahead of them all have stiff competition remaining on their schedules.  After Carolina Panthers win on Monday night – their toughest games left by far are the two meetings they still have against the New Orleans Saints.  The San Francisco 49ers currently have a tie-breaker over the Cards at 6-4 but all that can change quickly.

The Cards just need to worry about themselves as they prepare for the Indianapolis Colts this week.  Then they have a tilt on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles.  The Cards then finish the season with three of their last four games against the NFC West.  Take care of your own business I say and things should look up.

While it would have been nice to see the Panthers lose on Monday night seeing as the Cards hold the tie-breaker over them, I think as long as we let the other teams play their schedule out like the Cards, things could turn rosy for the Cards when it comes to the playoffs.  The Cards own a tie-breaker over the Detroit Lions and are a game ahead of the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers.  It will be an awesome fight for the playoffs to watch over the final six weeks.
