Cardinals defense plays huge role in Week 3 comeback win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (9/21/14) 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.
Antonio Cromartie headed for MRI on knee
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (9/21/14) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after Sunday's win against the 49ers cornerback Antonio Cromartie injured the same knee he has had surgery on in the past. He will get an MRI.
Abraham had left the team last week after suffering from memory loss due to concussions, but returned to the team shortly after. Unfortunately, he was never able to get through the concussion protocol, and the team has apparently opted to end his season rather than allow him to try and return.

The Cardinals DST continues to be among the best Fantasy units for the past two years. They were No. 11 in Fantasy points in 2012 and No. 6 last season. The unit produced 47 sacks, 20 interceptions, 10 fumble recoveries, five touchdowns and two safeties. That's consecutive seasons with 20-plus interceptions, 10-plus fumble recoveries and 38-plus sacks. The NFC West is loaded with quality DST options since the Seahawks (No. 1), 49ers (No. 5) and Rams (No. 7) joined the Cardinals as Top 10 options. We expect the Cardinals DST to remain an elite Fantasy option, and they are worth drafting as a No. 1 unit in all formats.
