Week 16: vs Seattle Seahawks

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. The Cardinals have Carson Palmer on IR, and Drew Stanton is now out for a minimum of four weeks with sprains of his MCL and ACL ligaments (knee) - the Cardinals' passing attack is on life support here, friends. Ryan Lindley managed 4/10 for 30 yards passing in relief of Stanton at St. Louis last week - it'll be either he or journeyman Logan Thomas under center for this key NFC West showdown on Sunday. Seattle can pin their ears back and come early and often with blitzes as they stack the box to stifle Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor in the other phase of the game - the last time these teams met Arizona scored a single field-goal WITH Stanton in the game. This is an ugly situation for the Cardinals thanks to their awful injury plague at quarterback. Lindley/Thomas face a bleak matchup this week, even though they are at home.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs ATL (3 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)

With so few sustained drives and an abysmal 1-7 on 3rd downs, its not surprising that Carlson wasn't able to get too involved in the offense this week. Carlson was once again without a drop on Sunday, a hopeful sign that those will no longer be an issue going forward.

2014 Week 14 vs KC (1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Carlson found himself replaced in the base and run packages on Sunday in favor of Darren Fells, but did manage to catch the team's two-point conversion attempt after their go-ahead touchdown with a quick, 2-yard out-route that barely crossed the goal line.
