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.

2014 Week 2 vs NYG (10 / 6 / 51 / 0 rec)

After one week of consternation I guess we can put the notion to bed that Fitzgerald is being fazed out of The Cardinals' offense. Fitz led the team in both receptions and targets, with over 1/3rd of Stanton's passes headed Larry's way. Fitzgerald's numbers were hardly gaudy, but did have a 36-yard reception wiped out due to penalty and fell about a half-yard short of a touchdown that Dwyer later converted. It still was not the monster day fantasy owners are hoping for, but not only was Fitzgerald very close to breaking out for a big day, he was once again the focal point of the passing game.

2014 Week 3 vs SF (7 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)

Fitzgerald had another quiet game, notching only 3 catches on his 7 targets and lost a fumble deep into the 49ers red zone late in the 4th quarter. Somewhat ironically, that fumble came after Larry's two biggest catches of the day. Fitzgerald's lack of involvement came as a result of a few different factors; the 49ers scheming to take him away, and The Cardinals' other wide receivers having big days. Instead of Fitzgerald it was Michael Floyd who went over 100 yards and John Brown who found the end zone (twice).
