Most important game left: Dec. 8 vs. Steelers
This is the Cardinals' next-best chance at getting another win. Arizona has been beating teams it should, and while the Steelers topped the Rams last week, Pittsburgh is playing with a backup quarterback. If the Cardinals can't win that contest, their next -- and possibly last -- chance to get a victory would come the week after against Cleveland. -- Josh Weinfuss

USA Today - #23

Christian Kirk snagged three TD passes Sunday, matching output from his first 18 games. If he gets going, "Air Raid" could reach new level.

CBS Sports - #24

They are competing and the offense has done some good things - see Christian Kirk - but they just aren't good enough yet. It will take some time.

NBC Sports - #26

Cardinals lose the Bruce Arians bowl. Certainly up for debate whether they employ the right offensive mastermind.

Washington Post - #29

Yes, the final play of the loss to the Buccaneers should have been reviewed for possible defensive pass interference against the Bucs. But there’s not going to be much of a public outcry when it’s a Cardinals-Bucs game.
