The Saints still have Drew Brees at quarterback. But for how long? This may be the last chance the Cardinals get to see Brees in a Saints uniform.
Brees leads the NFL in yards passed for at 4,170-yards for the season. He has 30 touchdown passes but has also thrown 14 interceptions.
The Cardinals defense took some hits last week. They lost safeties Deone Bucannon and Tyvon Branch for the season last week.
Local favorite, linebacker Scooby Wright, out of the University of Arizona, was signed by the Cardinals this week off of the Cleveland Browns practice squad. Hopefully he gets some playing time to show what he can do. He was someone the Cardinals wanted to bring in after the draft as an undrafted free-agent.
Back to Brees, he still has weapons. He has receivers Brandin Cooks, Brandon Perriman, and Willie Snead IV. He also has Coby Fleener at tight end. Running backs are also a threat when healthy. They have Mark Ingram and former Cardinals back Tim Hightower.
There is some good news for the Cardinals. Safety Tyrann Mathieu is going to play on Sunday. He has missed five of the last six games.
