No comments have been posted to this article.


Arizona Cardinals

Record: 4-4

Last week: Beat Atlanta, 27-13

This week: Bye

Notable: Arizona’s defense has upheld its end of the bargain for much of the season: The Cardinals picked off Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan four times last week while also sacking him four times.

St. Louis Rams

Record: 3-5

Last week: Lost to Seattle, 14-9

This week: Tennessee, 10 a.m.

Notable: The Rams were left for dead when Sam Bradford was lost for the year with an injury, but powerful running back Zac Stacy has helped solidify St. Louis’ offense.

San Francisco 49ers

Record: 6-2

Last week: Beat Jacksonville, 42-10

This week: Carolina, 1:05 p.m.

Notable: The 49ers’ All-Pro linebacker Aldon Smith is expected to play this week against Carolina. Smith has played in only three games after his second arrest for suspicion of drunken driving.
