From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 15): Ryan Lindley at quarterback and the Seattle defense means Michael Floyd won't even be a decent desperation play.

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 (10 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)

This was a perfect matchup to take advantage of Floyd's ability and early on in the game it seemed that was exactly what the Cardinals planned on doing. Floyd was targeted early and often on short and intermediate routes, ensuring his inclusion in the offense from the get-go. By and large this was all going well until Floyd's costly fumble early in the second quarter. The Cardinals had just put together their best offensive drive of the day, when Floyd caught a 13-yard pass across the middle well in Atlanta territory. While breaking up field Floyd was stripped from behind and Atlanta recovered. The Atlanta defender likely deserves more credit for an impressive play than Floyd does scorn, but at a time in the season when you're without your starting quarterback, leading receiver and your starting running back just left the game, you'd like to see Michael Floyd step up and put the team on his back so to speak, not help bury it deeper.

2014 Week 14 vs KC (7 / 4 / 85 / 0 rec)

WR Michael Floyd, It's been a frustrating season for Floyd, with several "just missed" plays this year that could have seen his lackluster numbers look more like further evidence of an ascending star. While Sunday wasn't the dominating performance many of us expected heading into this season, it was at least a step back in the right direction with Floyd taking advantage of smaller defenders and coming up with one of the day's biggest plays. The most impressive part of Floyd's route came within the first 10-yards, where he out-muscled the smaller defender's attempt to jam, and then was able to accelerate past. All too often this season Floyd's let smaller defenders body him around, but that was not the case here. With Fitzgerald's knee still nowhere near 100%, Floyd's is going to have to make a few more big plays for this team as they head into their final stretch and hopeful playoff run.

2014 Week 15 vs STL (3 / 2 / 55 / 0 rec)

At first glance Michael Floyd's stat line looks fairly unimpressive. What unfortunately doesn't make it into his box score was the 36-yard pass interference penalty he drew. Suddenly his yardage total looks a lot better, and when considering both big plays directly lead to field goals, their importance to the game amplifies.
