Results: The Cardinals beat the Cowboys to improve to 11-5. The Rams won, which means the Cardinals remain in fifth place with the top wild card.
The Cardinals are 10-5 and sit a game back of the Rams. They clinched a playoff berth last week in spite of losing their third straight game, but they have slipped from contender for the No. 1 seed to firmly atop the wild card standings. They are two games up on the 49ers and Eagles and can finish no worse than sixth overall thanks to their head-to-head tiebreaker advantage against San Francisco.
If you are a Cardinals fan, you’ll have a few games you’ll be paying attention to as they look to improve their chances of winning the division and improving their seeding. They likely can’t claim the No. 1 seed because Green Bay has the head-to-head tiebreaker.
Rams vs. Ravens
The Rams clinch the NFC West with a win and a Cardinals loss or tie. Arizona remains alive with a win, but a Rams loss would allow Arizona to retake first place due to the division record tiebreaker. The Rams are six-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Buccaneers vs. Jets
The Cardinals theoretically could climb as high as the No. 2 seed in the playoff picture. It’s not a huge deal with only the No. 1 seed getting a bye, but it’s worth noting. The Bucs are 14-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook.
