The Arizona Cardinals have started to make people notice them if they already weren’t on their radar in the first place.  They came home and defeated the San Francisco 49ers 23-14 and have sole possession of first place in the NFC West after week three in the NFL.

The Cards move into the number three spot in this weeks Raising Zona poll.  That’s up seven spots from last week.  Clearly though the Cincinnati Bengals are the most complete and balanced team from top to bottom at 3-0, so they over take the Denver Broncos in the top spot.  The Broncos lost to the Seattle Seahawks, who moved up to the number two spot.

Nothing changed at the bottom.  The Jacksonville Jaguars are still the clear worst team in the NFL, although the Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear they want to challenge that notion.
