The Arizona Cardinals and the Denver Broncos both had the weekend off with their bye week, so both should be refreshed when they take the field next Sunday in Denver.  For the Cardinals it means possibly getting their starting quarterback back.

Carson Palmer has missed the last two games with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder.  With the game in Denver and facing a 2-1 Broncos team that has only lost to the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, my hope is if he is playing he is 100 percent ready to go.  If he isn’t 100 percent I would say the Cards can rely on Stanton to get the job done.  However, as I’ve stated before, Palmer is the starter.  There is no quarterback controversy.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is off to another good start.  It isn’t a blistering start like 2013 but nonetheless he has thrown 74-111-814 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception.  He can be beaten but it is a tall task.  The Cards defense is giving up an average of 15 points per game, so that will definitely be tested in the thin air of Denver.
