Cardinals need help to make post-season
--Coach Ken Whisenhunt has received game balls after each of the last two victories. The first one came because he tied Don Coryell for the most wins in franchise history, 42. The next one came because he passed Coryell. Asked what would have happened if the team had started 6-1 and gone 1-6, Whisenhunt laughed.
"Oh, my God," Whisenhunt said, laughing, when asked to imagine if the halves of this season had been flipped. "They'd be taking the game ball back, that's what they'd be doing."
--CB Patrick Peterson likely will be matched up against fellow rookie A.J. Green on Saturday. The two played against each other twice in college, with Peterson at Louisiana State and Green at Georgia. "My sophomore year he matched up against me the whole game," Green said. "He's a great player, probably one of the best corners I've seen in college. I just have to be prepared to face him this week."
--It appears Joey Porter will finish his career with two sacks short of 100. Porter was placed on injured reserve after missing eight games this year because of knee surgery. The Cardinals signed Porter a year ago in the hopes that he would bring an outside pass rush. But he had just five sacks in 14 games last year and one this year. Porter took a pay cut of $4.25 million to return this season. At age 34, it's doubtful another team signs him.
