Cardinals defense plays huge role in Week 3 comeback win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals defense shutout the 49ers in the second half Sunday, which allowed the offense to rally from a 14-6 halftime deficit and secure a 23-14 win Week 3.

The 49ers, who had a pair of first-half touchdowns, finished with 318 yards, including 82 rushing yards. 

The Cardinals defensive forced no turnovers and recorded one sack. Safety Tony Jefferson totaled a team-high 10 tackles (eight solo) and had the quarterback takedown of Colin Kaepernick. Safety Rashad Johnson had eight solo tackles and safety Tyrann Mathieu had six solo tackles.

The Cardinals are on a Week 4 bye before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.

Cardinals release final injury report before Monday game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Linebacker Alex Okafor has been ruled out by the Cardinals for their Monday night game against San Diego. He was a no-go in practice this week with a thigh injury.

Among those listed as questionable are running back Andre Ellington (foot), punter Dave Zastudil (groin) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee).

Arizona has guard Jonathan Cooper (toe), linebacker Kevin Minter (chest) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (back) listed as probable.

Tyrann Mathieu status for Monday game still up in the air
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A knee issue that had Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu listed as probable for the Monday night game against the Chargers now has him considered a game-time decision, according to Bruce Arians.

Mathieu started 11 of the 13 games in which he played as a rookie with Arizona last season and contributed 68 tackles and two picks.

Cardinals DST carries more risk than last year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.
