18. Arizona Cardinals 3-4-1 (17)
The Cardinals have to be thinking to themselves how lucky they are to still be in the hunt for the playoffs. With the Seahawks victory on Monday night, they still are not out of the NFC West race but it got darker.
With the bye week to mend some wounds, the Cardinals will start the second half of the season at home against the 49ers. It is just one of three home games remaining for the Cardinals this season.
The Cardinals must get themselves a victory this Sunday before heading out on the road to face a struggling Vikings team and a very good Falcons team. A win keeps them very much alive in the playoff hunt for a wild-card.
With so many teams at or near .500 right now, the margin of error widens a bit as the fight for the five and six seed heats up. A loss this week though and you can pretty much start making plans for 2017 if you are the Cardinals.
