23. Arizona Cardinals (11-6)
LAST SEASON: The Cardinals looked like one of the best teams in the NFL through the first few months of the season, winning their first seven games and improving to 10-2.
Monday marked the start of this year's legal tampering period in the NFL, when teams can contact players who are about to become unrestricted free agents and negotiate possible deals.
The Miami Dolphins' sales pitch was clearly working.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — J.J. Watt is in uniform for the Arizona Cardinals and Eric Weddle is playing for the Los Angeles Rams in the NFL West rivals' playoff showdown Monday night.
Watt was activated off injured reserve earlier in the day for the Cardinals (11-6), who are going after their second playoff victory in 12 seasons when they face the division champion Rams (12-5) at SoFi Stadium.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona still has a shot at the NFC West title, the No. 2 seed in the playoff bracket and home-field advantage in the first two rounds of the postseason.
How much the Cardinals are willing to risk for those benefits remains to be seen.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys were out of timeouts and couldn't challenge an apparent fumble that likely would have given them the ball back with just over 2 1/2 minutes left in Sunday's game.
It’s difficult to believe we’re already at Week 11, but here we are with all the top contenders to score in hand no less. These are my best bets to find the end zone in Week 11.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — With most of Arizona's biggest stars sitting out with injuries, the Cardinals still had more than enough firepower to overwhelm the San Francisco 49ers.
James Conner ran for two touchdowns and caught a 45-yard TD pass from backup quarterback Colt McCoy as the short-handed Cardinals beat the 49ers 31-17 on Sunday.
It’s Week 5, and the cream is starting to rise to the top in fantasy football. These players are my best bets to score at the running back and wide receiver positions.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — In every quarter of a dominant victory on the Rams' home turf, Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals confirmed they're no longer the annual afterthought in the NFC West.
The unbeaten Cards have shoved their way to the front of this ultracompetitive division with an offense that could run up the score on anybody, combined with a defense that finally managed to outsmart Sean McVay.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have signed running back Ito Smith.
The 5-foot-9, 195-pound Smith played his first three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. The 25-year-old has run for 689 yards and six touchdowns in his career while catching 55 passes for 314 yards.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Linebacker Chandler Jones was present at the first day of the Arizona Cardinals' training camp on Tuesday.
Eleven-time Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald was not.
Both developments were expected as the Cardinals opened their preseason at State Farm Stadium.
