Arizona enters another tough Week 5 matchup against the New Orleans Saints with a record of 2-2.

--DE Darnell Dockett did not have a tackle, according to the official statistics.

--WR Larry Fitzgerald passed Larry Centers to move into second place on the team's all-time receiving chart. He is 42 receptions behind Anquan Boldin.

--NT Dan Williams was not active after failing to meet his prescribed weight last week. Gabe Watson replaced Williams as the backup to Bryan Robinson.

--TE Jim Dray had the longest gain from scrimmage against the Chargers. He caught a 24-yard pass.

TRENDING: The Cardinals are showing little resilience on the road, a trait they last displayed in 2008. They ended up in the Super Bowl that year, but this group doesn't have nearly that much talent. The Cardinals' defense has a lot of guys who talk a great game, but they aren't playing like one. The hope was that the defense would carry this team early but it hasn't. The Cardinals are lucky to be 2-2. If not for a couple of fortunate plays, they could be 0-4.

LINEUP WATCH: There likely will be a quarterback change but the Cardinals are going to look hard at defensive personnel changes, too. The problem is, their options are limited. Gabe Watson could get more snaps at nose tackle in place of Bryan Robinson. But the Cardinals are thin at all the linebacker spots, and the secondary has been decent.
