Cardinals remain No. 1 in latest TD Wire power rankings

·1 min read

The Arizona Cardinals won their 10th game of the year in Chicago on Sunday, picking up a 33-22 win over the Bears. They remain atop the NFC West and also the No. 1 in the NFC.

It is no surprise that, in the latest NFL power rankings from Touchdown Wire’s Nick Wojton, they maintain their status as No. 1.

QB Kyler Murray looks more than back. In his return from injury, Murray had four total touchdowns… but that wasn’t the only four for the Cards. Arizona’s defense came to play as well, notching four interceptions against the Bears in a 33-22 final. This Cardinals team looks for real.

Murray and receiver DeAndre Hopkins both returned from a three-game absence and the team surpassed 30 points again despite only attempting 15 passes.

The Cardinals are now 7-0 and have won every game by 10 or more points. They have scored over 30 points in six of them.

Their defense is great. They can clinch a playoff spot this weekend and, with a win over the Los Angeles Rams on Monday, they can almost wrap up the NFC West.

Keeping them No. 1 in the rankings just makes sense.
