The Cardinals are sitting one game above .500 with a trio of back-to-back NFC West matchups right…
What a Difference Four Points Make
The Cardinals couldn't get the job done, but individual players had noteworthy stats:
--J.J. Arrington fell just shy (9 yards to be exact) of registering his third 100-yard receiving game in the last four games.
--Tim Hightower's six rushing touchdowns leads all NFC rookie running backs.
--Larry Fitzgerald tallied his fourth game with 100 yards or more this season.
--Edgerrin James needed 13 more yards to reach the 12,000 career yards milestone.
--Kurt Warner is the weekly top-leader for passing yards with 381 in his 100th career game. Philip Rivers and Drew Brees follow Warner in their high passing game in London.
--Give Warner an indoor arena any day as he is 18-29 when he is a starter at an outdoor venue.
--The Cardinals failed to snap its losing streak to the Panthers that goes back to 2003; they now have five-straight losses to Carolina.
--Karlos Dansby earned the only sack of the game for Arizona. It marked his third of the year.
--Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie almost captured his first interception of his young career in the end zone, but couldn't hang on to the ball.
NFC West Shakeup
The Cardinals will remain in first place in the NFC West. After sitting in last place, the Seahawks are now 2-5 with their win over the San Francisco 49ers. With a loss against the New England Patriots, the St. Louis Rams move down to 2-5 and now share second place with the Seahawks.
