Coach Chip Kelly said Mark Sanchez, not Matt Barkley, will start Week 17's meaningless finale against the Giants.

Dec 22 - 8:23 AM

The Week 17 Bengals at Steelers game has been flexed to Sunday Night Football on NBC.

The game will decide the AFC North. However, a lot of intrigue could be lost if the Bengals beat the Broncos tonight as that would clinch a playoff berth for Marvin Lewis' bunch. The Steelers already clinched a playoff spot by beating the Chiefs yesterday. Other options for NBC included the Lions at Packers in a game for the NFC North and the Panthers at Falcons for the NFC South crown (along with a playoff spot).

Christine Michael had eight carries for 28 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Michael was mostly used in mop-up duty, but saw four carries with Marshawn Lynch missing time in the first quarter. He remains behind both Lynch and Robert Turbin for touches. Seattle has a Week 17 matchup against the Rams.
Dec 22 - 1:24 AM

Robert Turbin rushed 10 times for 38 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Turbin started and got the majority of work in the first quarter with Marshawn Lynch sidelined. He finished with 10 touches, with Christine Michael also mixing in. Turbin will be just a change of pace behind Lynch in Week 17.
Dec 22 - 1:22 AM

John Brown caught three passes for 54 yards in the Cardinals' Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Brown led the Cardinals in receiving in a game where Ryan Lindley completed just 41 percent of his passes. He remains the No. 3 option behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. Brown won't be on the daily-league radar against the 49ers.
Dec 22 - 1:19 AM

Luke Willson secured all three of his targets for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Willson was left wide open for a 80-yard touchdown on a blown coverage by Cardinals S Rashad Johnson in the first quarter. He was on the receiving end of both of Russell Wilson's touchdowns, with his second coming on a 20-yard seam route. It's a nice breakout game for Willson, who should continue to see the majority of snaps when Tony Moeaki returns. Seattle plays the Rams in Week 17.
Dec 22 - 1:13 AM

Michael Floyd caught two passes for 41 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Floyd was a non-factor outside of a 32-yard catch in the third quarter. He was Ryan Lindley's No. 2 option, finishing with eight targets. Floyd is averaging 59 yards over his last four games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 11.
Dec 22 - 1:11 AM

Doug Baldwin had seven catches for 113 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Baldwin's biggest play was a 49-yard third-quarter catch where Cardinals CB Antonio Cromartie fell down at the line of scrimmage. With Jermaine Kearse sidelined, he was targeted a team-high 11 times. Baldwin will take a 63/782/3 line in Week 17 against the Rams.
Dec 22 - 1:08 AM

Larry Fitzgerald caught four passes for 33 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Fitzgerald had 11 targets, but was held back by Ryan Lindley. His longest play was a 16-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. Fitzgerald could get an upgrade with Drew Stanton hoping to return in Week 17. The Cardinals play the 49ers in their final game before the postseason.
Dec 22 - 12:53 AM

Paul Richardson had five catches for 52 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Richardson saw an expanded role after Jermaine Kearse went down with a hamstring injury. He finished with seven targets, behind only Doug Baldwin. Richardson could start in Week 17 if Kearse is held out.
Dec 22 - 12:48 AM

Kerwynn Williams was held to two carries for four yards in Sunday night's loss to Seattle.

Williams barely saw the field behind Stepfan Taylor. He surprisingly wasn't part of the gameplan after leading the backfield in snaps last week. Taylor averaged just 1.7 YPC, so Williams could be more involved in Week 17 against the 49ers.
Dec 22 - 12:45 AM

Stepfan Taylor rushed 11 times for 19 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Taylor started and got the majority of carries. He was a non-factor in the run game, but managed two catches for 25 yards on three targets. Taylor should remain in a timeshare with Kerwynn Williams going forward despite significantly outsnapping him this week. The Cardinals have a matchup with the 49ers in Week 17.
Dec 22 - 12:33 AM

Marshawn Lynch had 10 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Lynch missed the first quarter due to an illness-related issue. He was limited to 10 carries and held in check for most of the game before breaking off a 79-yard touchdown. Lynch has 100 total yards or a touchdown in four straight weeks. Seattle closes out the regular season against the Rams.
Dec 22 - 12:25 AM

Ryan Lindley completed 18-of-44 passes for 216 yards and an interception in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Lindley predictably struggled to move the offense, missing open receivers throughout the game. His interception came on a bad overthrow directly to Richard Sherman. Lindley completed only 41 percent of his passes and averaged an anemic 4.9 yards per attempt. With the loss, Arizona drops to second place in the NFC West. The Cardinals are hoping Drew Stanton can return in Week 17.
Dec 22 - 12:18 AM

Russell Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 339 yards and three total touchdowns in Sunday night's 35-6 Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

The pass yards were Wilson's most this season. He was able to beat the Cardinals for big plays downfield, including an 80-yard touchdown to TE Luke Willson in the first quarter. Both of his touchdowns went to Willson, who he also connected with from 20 yards out. Wilson added 83 yards on five carries and had a five-yard rushing score. It was a solid rebound coming off last week's 195 total yard effort. With the win, Seattle is in the driver seat for the NFC West.
