TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals players are trying to ignore all the talk surrounding who the team will choose with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Larry Fitzgerald took a back pass from Josh Rosen, shuffled a couple of steps right and set his feet.
Arizona's all-time leading receiver cocked his right arm back and let a not-quite-a-spiral fly into the desert air. The ball landed softly into the hands of Cardinals running back David Johnson, hitting him stride for a 32-yard touchdown.
ATLANTA (AP) — It couldn't have gone much better for the Cardinals as they started Sunday's game in Atlanta by forcing two punts. In between, they drove 64 yards in eight plays to take a 7-0 lead on David Johnson's 1-yard run.
But everything went haywire from there.
The Falcons (5-9) scored the game's next 40 points — 21 off Arizona turnovers — and the Cardinals (3-11) fell 40-14 to a team that had lost its previous five games.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals had scored a go-ahead touchdown. They had the Oakland Raiders right where they wanted them after three straight incompletions forced the Raiders to punt the ball with 2:50 remaining in Sunday's game.
The Cardinals took possession with Oakland having only one timeout. But two critical penalties cost them dearly, and gave the Raiders just enough time to mount a drive for the winning field goal in a 23-21 win.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Although the Arizona Cardinals went down to their seventh defeat of the season, there were positive aspects to their 26-14 loss at Kansas City.
David Johnson broke loose for his best game of the year and the Cardinals defense harassed Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes better than anyone has all season.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs finally got Justin Houston back onto the field Sunday against Arizona, and the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker made one of the plays of the game when he picked off Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen on a second-half screen pass.
The Chiefs also got safety Daniel Sorensen back from injured reserve, where he had resided since breaking his leg in training camp, and he five tackles while providing a hard-hitting presence.
Of all the NFL seasonal awards, the one shaping up as the closest and most intriguing is for Comeback Player of the Year.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals can't run the football. The Denver Broncos can't stop the run.
So maybe the ground game will be the deciding factor when these two struggling teams meet on Thursday night.
"I'll tell you this - and I'm a firm believer in this - stopping the run and running the football allows a team to control the game depending on who is doing that the best," Broncos coach Vance Joseph said.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Five games into the season, the Arizona Cardinals' offense is running like some old car with a sputtering engine.
The Cardinals (1-4) rank 31st out of 32 teams in total offense (210 yards a game), 31st in passing offense (146 yards per game) and dead last in rushing offense (64.6 yards per game). This with a team that features one of the best running backs in the NFL in David Johnson.
A look at some key fantasy questions going into Week 3:
ARE THE CARDINALS REALLY THIS BAD? CAN YOU STILL START DAVID JOHNSON?
Patrick Mahomes is good. 2018 David Johnson looks nothing like 2016 David Johnson. The Rams defense has not only replaced the Seahawks as the NFC's most dominant unit, but may be the best the NFL has to offer.
Week 3 will go a long way toward helping fantasy football owners decide how those clear early observations play out. Mahomes, Johnson and the Rams defense are certain starts, but the same can't be said for some others whose fate will hinge on the faith of their owners.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals' offense has been dreadful by any measure and Sam Bradford knows that, as the quarterback, he takes the lion's share of the blame.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — In the first two games for Steve Wilks as an NFL head coach, his Arizona Cardinals have been outscored 58-6.
In Sunday's 34-0 drubbing by the Rams in Los Angeles, the Cardinals offense didn't manage to cross midfield until the next-to-last play of the game.
Arizona had five first downs and 137 total yards. That follows 213 yards the previous week against the Redskins.
The Cardinals (0-2) are averaging 175 yards per game, dead last in the NFL and it's not even close.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Only two games have been played, yet the Rams defense is living up to its lofty expectations.
Los Angeles put on a dominating display in Sunday's 34-0 victory over Arizona as it gave up only five first downs and didn't allow the Cardinals to cross midfield until the final minute of the game.
PHOENIX (AP) — On the eve of their season opener, the Arizona Cardinals have signed star running back David Johnson to a three-year contract extension.
Johnson, who led the NFL in yards from scrimmage and touchdowns two seasons ago but missed all but one game a year ago with a fractured left wrist, had held out during the team's minicamp but expressed optimism during training camp that a deal would get done.
NEW YORK (AP) — Rules changes and U.S. anthem demonstrations seem to have people inside and outside the NFL obsessed as the opening kickoff of the season approaches.
Yes, the Super Bowl champion Eagles and Atlanta Falcons will open things on Thursday in Philadelphia. What many people wonder: Will there be any social injustice protests during "The Star-Spangled Banner?" And will players, coaches and officials have a handle on the adjustment to use of the helmet in making a hit.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Even though he says he's not paying that much attention to it, David Johnson says he's "very encouraged" about ongoing contract talks between his agent and the Arizona Cardinals.
"They said they're going to continue to talk and hopefully we can get a deal done soon," he said.
With many NFL teams using a running back by committee approach, the "bell cow" back who carries the ball 20 times per game has become a hot commodity in fantasy football.
According to consensus draft rankings in point-per-reception (PPR) scoring formats, 10 of the first 15 players taken in typical drafts are running backs. If you want to field a competitive lineup this season, focus on RBs early.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Quarterback Sam Bradford was well aware of David Johnson even before signing with the Cardinals in the offseason.
Bradford was on the opposite sideline when Johnson rushed for 187 yards and three touchdowns while trouncing Bradford's Eagles in 2015.
A training camp with Johnson has only amplified Bradford's appreciation.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is building the Arizona Cardinals' offense from scratch and, big surprise, David Johnson is figuring prominently in his plays.
"David's a special back," McCoy said after the Cardinals practiced in pads in muggy weather outdoors on Tuesday.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have their star running back but are without their general manager as they open their first training camp under new coach Steve Wilks.
Running back David Johnson returned to the fold this week after sitting out mandatory minicamp in a contract dispute.
PHOENIX (AP) — David Johnson is back in the fold with the Arizona Cardinals.
The question about whether the dynamic running back would continue his holdout was answered in a hurry when he was among the players returning from injuries to show up for the early portion of training camp.
Johnson, who figures to be the centerpiece of the Arizona offense under new coach Steve Wilks, did not take part in the team's mandatory minicamp in a contract dispute.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals, with running back David Johnson still a no-show, wrapped up their first minicamp under new coach Steve Wilks on Thursday with another workout in the scorching heat.
With the high approaching 110 degrees a couple of hours later, the Cardinals practiced in the late morning hours with Wilks disdaining using the nearby practice bubble.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona running back David Johnson skipped the first day of the Cardinals' mandatory minicamp Tuesday amid reports that the sides are discussing a new contract.
Johnson, who led the NFL with 20 touchdowns in a breakout 2016 season before missing all but one game with a wrist injury last year, is scheduled to make $1,882,500 in the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — David Johnson is back and, he says, better than ever.
The Arizona Cardinals running back, an All-Pro in 2016, missed last season after dislocating his left wrist in the season opener. The wrist is healed and he is a full participant in the team's weight and conditioning program that began this week.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have released running back Adrian Peterson after a half-season in the desert that included a pair of impressive games and a season-ending injury.
The seven-time All-Pro running back began last season with New Orleans but, after barely playing there, was dealt to the Cardinals.
