Cards could clinch division with 5 weeks to sparePosted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals are on the brink of clinching a division title. It's something this franchise has not done in 33 years.
And they could do it with five weeks to spare.
The Cardinals are 7-3 and improved to 4-0 against NFC West foes by beating the Seahawks in Seattle 26-20 on Sunday.
With six games to play, Arizona has a four-game lead over San Francisco. The Cardinals have beaten the 49ers twice.
Arizona can clinch the division crown, and its first playoff berth in a decade, this weekend on three conditions.
They beat the New York Giants at home, San Francisco loses at Dallas and Seattle either ties or loses at Washington.
