The Arizona Cardinals reestablished themselves as a threat in the NFC with their 25-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys on the road. It snapped a three-game losing streak and it appeared that their offense and defense both got right.
After dipping in Touchdown Wire’s power rankings over the last three weeks, they went back in the right direction entering Week 18.
Touchdown Wire’s Nick Wojton had the Cardinals moving up from No. 7 to No. 5 in his latest rankings.
Finally the disastrously run for Arizona is gone… at least for now. The Cardinals held off the Cowboys in a 25-22 matchup between NFC playoff teams. Cards QB Kyler Murray had a pair of TDs to WR Antonie Wesley and extended drives just enough to stay undefeated at Dallas in his lifetime.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the only AFC team ahead of them, while the only NFC squads ahead of them are the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams.
With a win in Week 18 over the 25th-ranked Seattle Seahawks and a win by the 13th-ranked San Francisco 49ers over the third-ranked Rams, and the Cardinals will have a division title.
NFC West goes undefeated in Week 17; division title to be decided in Week 18
