Arizona Cardinals: 5 NFC West stars to account for in 2017
Not only is Wilson the best quarterback in the division right now, he is the best player in the division outside of Arizona. He can beat you both in the air and on the ground.
Last season, his two games against the Cardinals were complete opposites. In the tie game in Arizona in October, Wilson struggled for the most part. He went 234-37 for 225-yards but much of that came in the 4th quarter and overtime. He was held to negative rushing yardage.
In December, he was on fire. In their Christmas Eve matchup, Wilson arguably had his best game of the 2016 campaign. He went 29-45 for 350-yards and four touchdowns.

The Cardinals got off to a quick lead but Wilson lead them back to take a 4th quarter lead before the Cardinals ended up winning as time expired. He also fared better on the ground, carrying the ball 10 times for 36-yards.
Historically, Wilson has been mobile enough to get himself out of trouble and create huge issues for defenses. He struggled through injury in 2016, thus he only rushed for 259-yards last season.
Word is he is back to full health in 2017. Once again, the Cardinals and the rest of the NFC West should be on notice that Wilson will once again be off and running.
