The Monday Night Game between the Cardinals and 49ers will go far in determining the eventual NFC West winner. Both teams are healthy for the most part, but the Cardinals have so many players banged up, that they will be in trouble if any injuries pop up in the course of the game. The biggest concern for Arizona will be the health of their quarterback who comes into the game already nicked up, and with an offensive line that has allowed the most in the NFL in sacks.
