Super Bowl or bust? That might seem dramatic, but it also rings true for the Cardinals this season. After winning the NFC West and advancing to the NFC Championship Game, the Cardinals should be satisfied with nothing less than playing in the final game of the season.
A win for the Arizona Cardinals (12-2) this afternoon would clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs. Ironically, Green Bay is the only team that can mathematically swap places with Arizona, giving this matchup added significance.
With another playoff berth in their back pocket the Seattle Seahawks (9-5) now set their sights on doing what they need to do in order to lock down the fifth seed in the NFC playoffs. The difference between the No. 5 and No. 6 seeds in the first round is plain and simple.
Arizona sure didn’t gain any style points in last week’s 19-13 victory over San Francisco, but the Cardinals did make it five in a row and were able to keep a three-game cushion over Seattle in the NFC West, while still holding onto a first-round bye in the playoff derby.
Thanksgiving Day was just the appetizer for Week 12 NFL and fantasy action. For the first time since Week 3 all 32 teams are in action, which means we still have 13 games to go between Sunday and Monday.
While there are plenty of things to be thankful for, one of them for football (and fantasy) fans is three games on Thanksgiving Day! And speaking of these three, oh-so-tasty matchups, what is a fantasy owner to do?
Is it just me or is the NFL and fantasy season flying by? Can you believe that it’s Thanksgiving already? The really good news is that since we are now in Week 12, every team has had their bye. So that means from here on out we have a full schedule of all 32 teams playing. Which also means we finally have true position rankings.
