Here are five takeaways from Week 9 of NFL games.
5. The Arizona Cardinals are the best team in the NFC
The Cardinals are now 7-1, and they are arguably the best team in the NFL right now. They have continued to find ways to win games, and their only loss is to the Broncos. However, that was a blowout loss, and it’s difficult to make a case for the Cardinals over the Broncos and Patriots. They are definitely the best team in the NFC right now though, and their defense continues to be scary.
Quarterback Carson Palmer has held his own too, as he is doing a fantastic job at limiting the turnovers. This Cardinals team is well-coached, and Bruce Arians is the leading candidate for Coach of the Year honors.
