The Arizona Cardinals get Sunday off and a chance to rest while watching others play
Usually at this time, we are looking at the good, bad, and ugly of the Arizona Cardinals game that just concluded. This week, it’s all good news.
Although there was a rumor the Cardinals were going to be an underdog to the bye, the fact is no one had to get on the football field on Sunday and either embarrass themselves or get injured.
As far as it appears, it is a win-win situation for the Cardinals. Their bye allowed them to sit at home today and just chill. Hopefully some just had a chance to get away from football all together and re-energize. Maybe some are golfing? The weather is great right now.
The second half of the season will feature nine games. Of those nine, five of them are at home. And after a long trip to London and back, their only trips left are to San Francisco, Houston, Washington, and Seattle.
The Washington game is by far the furthest away from home but its not until December. For now, the Cardinals should only be taking things week by week.

No one was injured, at least not today since the team was off. Now, once they return to the practice field this week, all bets are off.
Having the 49ers as their opponent on the road after the bye should be considered a blessing. Yes, the 49ers played the Cardinals tough and it took overtime for them to beat them earlier in the month, but it’s still the 49ers.
The Cardinals didn’t lose any further ground to the first place Rams as they were also on a bye. Meanwhile, the Rams were given a long trip after their bye. They are going to play the New York Giants in New Jersey on November 5th. Advantage Cardinals.
So while we try to forget the 33-0 debacle last week in London and move on, we can all be assured our blood pressure will remain calm this week. Enjoy it. It’s the last break for awhile.
