Week 5: at Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Both of these teams were on bye last week, so their bumps and bruises should be healed up with the extra week of rest. Carson Palmer missed the games Week 2 and Week 3 due to a shoulder/nerve injury - the early word in Week 5 is that his status will begin to be determined in practice on Wednesday. Speaking Monday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians stated that Wednesday is a 'big day' for Palmer's status. He also seemed to hedge about how much progress Palmer has made, perhaps indicating that Drew Stanton would run the offense again in Week 5. Stanton (32/62 for 411 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with 8/14/0 rushing) has led the Cardinals to two straight wins and the Cardinals are undefeated entering the showdown with Denver. Stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News to see which quarterback gets the first team snaps during practices later this week. The Broncos' pass D averages 285.3 net passing yards per game (31st in the NFL), with four passing scores given out to date vs. three interceptions and eight sacks generated so far this year. During Week 3, Seattle managed 25/35 for 255 net yards, two TDs and one interception passing, with three sacks taken for -20 yards. The game prior, Alex Smith didn't manage a TD pass or an interception, with 26/42 for 247 net passing yards, and two sacks for -8 yards taken. Though the Broncos have tightened up things a tad recently, they are still vulnerable in this phase of the game. This looks like a good matchup for either Palmer or Stanton.
