The Arizona Cardinals have switched quarterbacks. Their sieve of an offensive line shows no sign of improving. They have scored a combined 19 points in the last two games. They rank 31st out of 32 NFL teams in offense.
Clearly, the Cardinals must lean on their defense more than ever.
As they head to Minnesota to face the surprising Vikings, the Cardinals are the only team in the NFL not to give up more than 21 points in a game this season.
No defensive player will say it, but any success depends on those who will be trying to chase down the likes of Percy Harvin, Adrian Peterson and Christian Ponder on Sunday.
