Chiefs Match Up Well Against Arizona

Chiefs fans, there is no magic formula to this week's game. The Arizona Cardinals are damn near as bad as the San Francisco 49ers. Check out the power rankings from various sites in two posts below and you'll see that the Cardinals have an average power ranking of about 26.

Also, take a look at Arizona's stats for this season. Cardinal opponents have more than doubled the amount of yards the Cardinals themselves have rushed for, 578 to 276. The Cardinals are also giving up almost 5 yards a rush. Anyone smell blood in the water?

Don't forget that Matt Leinart is starting over Kurt Warner this week too. We could be looking at a situation similar to what is happening in Nashville with Vince Young getting the starting nod. The Cardinals are better, I wouldn't say much better, than the Titans so keep an eye on Edgerrin James, who is having a sub par year so far.

Not really much to analyze here. The Chiefs are great at the run. The Cardinals give up a lot of running yards. The Cardinal's only win was in the opener against San Fran and Chiefs fans know how good the 49ers are....
