Arizona Cardinals: Week 16 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

Last week: 29 (+2)

Record: 5-9

Net points per drive: -0.31 (23rd)

DVOA: -14.7% (26th)

Weighted DVOA: -21.6% (27th)

The Cardinals ended a 9 game losing streak last week and avoided the 4-0 to 4-12 collapse, but they did it almost purely on returns, returning two interceptions for touchdowns and returning a muffed punt to the Detroit 5, for an easy score. Ryan Lindley still didn’t look like he even belonged in the league, let alone starting, and with games against Chicago and San Francisco left on the schedule, they probably won’t win another game.
