Mark Sanchez and Jets await the Cardinals in New York next week.
The Cardinals' last best shot for a win in 2012 comes up next Sunday. Arizona will pack up and head to the Big Apple and tangle with the New York Jets.
The Jets are coming off of an embarrassing 49-19 loss to the Patriots on Thanksgiving night which had one of the funniest moments of the last few years in the NFL in that loss.
New York and Arizona are two teams going down the same path. The Jets started 3-3 and were tied with the rest of the AFC East for first place in the division after six weeks. They've since gone 1-4 and fallen just about out of the playoff picture.
Arizona started 4-0 and has now dropped seven in a row for their path to 4-7 and, yes, have also just about been eliminated from the playoffs. The other games still on the schedule for Arizona are on the road to Seattle, home with Detroit and Chicago before closing at San Francisco.
On a positive note, the Cardinals put up 35 points in their last game against the Jets. Yes, they still lost by three touchdowns, and Anquan Boldin broke his face on a vicious hit, but there is a glimmer of hope that the offense will come back on another visit there.
The fun, if you can call it that, kicks off at 1 PM in New York and 11 AM in Phoenix.
And one of these teams will get its fifth win of the season.
