GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — One thing for certain about Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals: No team in the NFL will have a worse record than the team that loses this one.
The 49ers and Cardinals stagger into the game at 1-6. San Francisco has lost five in a row since its lone win of the season, a victory over Detroit on Sept. 16, back before quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury.
Arizona's lone win came at San Francisco on Oct. 7.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Three-time All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson backed off his request to be traded from the Arizona Cardinals, saying "it came at a bad time and I was just frustrated" about how badly the season has gone when he made it.
"Honestly I don't really want to dwell on the situation on what happened. I said what I said," Peterson said after practice Wednesday. "The news came out Monday. It is what it is. It's business. We're moving forward."
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Embattled first-year coach Steve Wilks emphatically said the Arizona Cardinals are not going to trade star cornerback Patrick Peterson, who at 28 years old should be in the prime of his career.
Wilks' comment Monday came moments after a report via Twitter that said Peterson had asked the Cardinals to trade him by the Oct. 30 deadline.
"We're not trading Patrick," Wilks said. "That's out of the question."
Jalen Ramsey backs up his big talk with big plays.
Now the Jacksonville cornerback can crow about something else.
Ramsey was the overwhelming choice as the NFL's top cornerback by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press. The All-Pro received eight first-place votes in balloting released Friday.
The role and value of the running back in the NFL has evolved as much as any position over the past decade, with a league-wide trend favoring versatile players who can contribute equally to the passing attack as to the ground game.
Todd Gurley embodies the postmodern ball carrier as well as anyone.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Patrick Peterson hasn't faced a starting quarterback in the preseason.
The three-time All-Pro cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals is getting himself in regular-season form anyway.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — For now anyway, Jamar Taylor seems the odds-on favorite to win the cornerback job opposite Patrick Peterson, a chore that's loaded with action since that's the direction most opponents decide to throw.
Last week, the Arizona Cardinals sent a 2020 sixth-round draft pick to Cleveland in exchange for Taylor, who started 29 games for the Browns the past two seasons.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Cardinals have released cornerback Marcus Williams.
Monday's move comes after the team acquired cornerback Jamar Taylor in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.
Taylor enters summer workouts as the favorite to win the starting cornerback spot opposite Patrick Peterson.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Jamar Taylor's trade to Arizona is official.
Cleveland traded another of their starting quarterbacks to the Cardinals on Saturday for a sixth-round draft pick in 2020. The teams agreed to the swap on Friday and had to work out final details before it was announced.
The Browns previously shopped Taylor and finally worked out a deal with the Cardinals, who will likely start him opposite star Patrick Peterson.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals are finalizing a trade that would bring cornerback Jamar Taylor from the Cleveland Browns, two people with knowledge of the situation said Friday.
The people, who sought anonymity because the trade had not been officially announced, said the deal was expected to be completed Friday.
The trade would help fill a significant need for the Cardinals — a cornerback to play opposite Patrick Peterson. The Browns would receive a sixth-round draft pick.
PHOENIX (AP) — No. 11 is coming back for the Arizona Cardinals.
New Arizona coach Steve Wilks says wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald — arguably the most popular and certainly the most prolific player to don a Cardinals uniform — has told him he'll return for a 15th NFL season.
Wilks made the comment Thursday in an interview on the "Doug & Wolf" sports talk radio show. Wilks says Fitzgerald told him of his decision in a conversation Wednesday night.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Five weeks ago in London, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Arizona Cardinals 33-0 , the biggest Rams winning margin in the history of the long series.
Now the Rams (8-3) roll into the desert looking to solidify their spot atop the NFC West against the Cardinals (5-6), who are coming off their best win of the season, 27-24 over Jacksonville in Glendale.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals expected their defense to be a strength this season. It hasn't been.
That's been particularly apparent lately. In their last six quarters, the Cardinals have allowed 66 points (and scored seven).
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Morris Claiborne came to the New York Jets intent on being their No. 1 cornerback — and an elite player at his position.
He's got that first goal locked down. Being mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson and Chris Harris? Well, he's still got work to do.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Patrick Peterson wrapped up what he called "by far" his best NFL training camp on Thursday.
And that's saying something since the Arizona Cardinals cornerback was an All-Pro selection three times and a Pro Bowl player in each of his previous six professional seasons.
His motivation for continuing to work hard on his craft is simple, and a bid audacious. He wants to be the best of all time.
CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Don't look for too many stars on the field Thursday night when the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals kick off the NFL preseason in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals bolstered arguably their weakest position by signing ex-Cleveland cornerback Tramon Williams.
Finding a cornerback to play opposite Patrick Peterson has been a problem for Arizona. Coach Bruce Arians recently declared it open between Justin Bethel and Brandon Williams, although Ronald Zamort, an undrafted rookie, had looked good at the position before tearing an ACL in Saturday's Red and Blue practice.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals finally looked like the team they expected to be, even if it took a dozen games to get there.
But Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden didn't like the way his team looked from Sunday's opening kickoff.
"I feel like we underachieved today," he said after the Cardinals' 31-23 victory, "and that's very frustrating."
It's not difficult to pinpoint the teams that have unexpectedly prospered or just as stunningly plummeted halfway through the 2016 season.
Yep, we're looking at you, Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals. Last January, you played for a spot in the Super Bowl. Right now, you're hanging with the mediocrities (or worse) of the NFL.
Nor is it hard to spot the surprisingly successful teams putting themselves in the championship mix, from the Dallas Cowboys to the Oakland Raiders.
Revis Island has become a popular destination.
Ignoring Richard Sherman, Josh Norman, Patrick Peterson and Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. is a thing of the past.
Opposing quarterbacks and offensive coordinators no longer are sacrificing the portion of the field patrolled by star cornerbacks. And we're not only talking about teams with outstanding receivers such as the Falcons (Julio Jones), Bengals (A.J. Green) and Giants (Odell Beckham Jr.).
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Coach Bruce Arians has accomplished a lot in his three seasons with the Cardinals.
Beating Seattle in Arizona isn't one of them.
That 0-3 record at home against the Seahawks was a major topic as the Cardinals prepared for the Sunday night matchup of two teams that have dominated the NFC West in recent years.
Cornerback Patrick Peterson brought it up in the locker room moments after Arizona's 28-3 victory over the New York Jets on Monday night.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Stopping the run was one of the few things the New York Jets had done well this season.
Until they faced David Johnson and the Arizona Cardinals.
Johnson rushed for 111 yards and three touchdowns, and the Cardinals shut down the listless Jets 28-3 on Monday night.
Johnson scored on runs of 58, 2 and 2 yards while becoming the first player to rush for three scores against the Jets since LeSean McCoy did it five years ago.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The preseason expectations for the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers were at opposite ends of the spectrum.
A year after making it to the NFC title game, the Cardinals believed they had the ingredients to take that next step and possibly win the Super Bowl. The Niners were more in a rebuild situation with first-year coach Chip Kelly and an unsettled quarterback situation.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have been awarded their waiver claim on cornerback Tharold Simon from the Seattle Seahawks.
To make room on the roster, the Cardinals waived/injured linebacker Lamar Luis (quad).
Simon was a fifth-round draft pick of the Seahawks out of LSU in 2013. He missed his rookie season with a foot injury and played in 11 games the past two seasons, five as a starter. He had 11 tackles, one interception and two passes defensed.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Darius Slay took a look at six names written on a notebook, an unofficial ranking of the NFL's top six shutdown corners: Patrick Peterson, Richard Sherman, Chris Harris, Josh Norman, Darrelle Revis and Slay.
"Oh, that's a good list," the Detroit Lions cornerback said Wednesday.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Nearly nine months after he tore an ACL and underwent knee surgery for the second time in three seasons, Tyrann Mathieu is back and ready to go in the Arizona Cardinals' season opener against New England on Sunday night.
Coach Bruce Arians said Mathieu will play every down. Defensive coordinator James Boettcher said his do-everything All-Pro defensive back is "where he left off last year."
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Rookie Brandon Williams is the starting cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals.
Playing opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson, there will be a barrage of passes coming Williams' way.
Is he ready?
"He's the best we've got," coach Bruce Arians said after practice Wednesday, "so he better be."
It's almost Williams' job by default. Mike Jenkins tore an ACL and is out for the season. Justin Bethel has a bad foot. Marcus Cooper just got here.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs sent cornerback Marcus Cooper to the Arizona Cardinals for an undisclosed draft pick on Friday as they began the process of trimming their roster.
The Cardinals have been trying to find a cornerback to start across from Patrick Peterson.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals lost another preseason game, but more significantly, lost one of the three players who were vying to start at cornerback opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson.
That position is the only one on either the Arizona offense or defense to be unsettled, and on Monday it was down to rookie Brandon Williams against rusty Justin Bethel.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals ended one of the NFL's longer training camps on Friday, shutting it down amid talk around the league that this could be a Super Bowl team.
"I thought it was very business-like," coach Bruce Arians said. "I thought our guys came to work every day. We had maybe two lull practices, mostly young guys."
