Arizona Cardinals: Wells, Hightower or Stephens-Howling, Analyzing the Cards Run

Sunday's 13-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs should have effectively ended the Arizona Cardinals season.

But this is the NFC West, and, so weak is it, that not a single other NFC West team managed to capitalise on this. In spite of the huge loss, Arizona remain just two games back on the division leading Seattle Seahawks.

Winning the division would require help, of course, however nothing in the recent performances of Seattle, St. Louis and San Francisco, showed nothing to demonstrate that they should not expect at least a little more help.

But if the Cardinals are going to capitalise on this gift, do their part, and win at least four of their six remaining games, something needs to improve.

Arizona are used to being amongst the worst teams rushing, so that particular statistic is no surprise, however, in the past few years, their high powered passing offence has more than made up for it.

In 2010, the Cardinals passing game has been all but useless, whereas the rushing game has looked to have potential.

But if Arizona are going to stand a chance of making a run for the playoffs, then it is going to have to come on the ground.

So, join me as we take a look at which running backs give Arizona the best chance of succeeding.
