Vince Marotta They're still playing this game? OK, just kidding. Two 4-7 teams headed in the wrong direction, and there's some speculation that the losing coach will also lose their job. Unlike the Jets, the Cardinals have been mostly competitive during their seven-game losing streak. Rex Ryan's team has been blown out by an average of 24 points in their last three losses -- including the Thanksgiving night debacle at the hands of the Patriots. Seriously, I laughed about Mark Sanchez's butt sack and fumble for about 30 solid minutes. But going on the road to the East coast to play an early game is never easy, especially when you're facing a team that's a little more rested. If the Jets can overcome their heavy hearts in the wake of Fireman Ed stepping down as the most annoying fan, I mean, the unofficial team mascot, they'll win.
Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 17
John Gambadoro Do they have to play? Can't take the Cardinals on the road and bringing with them a pathetic 7-game losing streak, even against an inept Jets team. New York, embarrassed by New England on Thanksgiving Day, got a few extra days to get healthy and prepare for Arizona and that should be enough to squeak out a victory. Arizona will play hard; they haven't quit on Ken Whisenhunt yet, but the lack of a quarterback is just killing them. I look for Lindley to improve some and a heavy dose of Beanie Wells. But this game comes down to who makes more mistakes not who makes more big plays, and that unfortunately is the Cardinals.

Adam Green Cardinals/Jets is the type of matchup dreams are made of.

Horrible, horrible dreams.

The Jets might be the only team in the NFL with a worse quarterback situation than the Cardinals, though any difference is pretty negligible. Mark Sanchez isn't great, but he has some ability -- we can't for sure say the same for Ryan Lindley.

This game will not be pretty.
Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 13

Joe Huizenga Both these teams have had devastating injuries this year.

Ryan Lindley's had the bulk of two games as starting QB under center now…they haven't been pretty but I just have a hunch it finally comes together a bit more this week for the Cardinals.

Basically, the Jets are a bigger mess…smile Cardinal fans, smile.

Dave Burns Two teams who win about as often as I hit the gym meet up on Sunday. Hard to pick a winner in this bunch. The Jets' issues have been magnified because they're the Jets, but they have the better QB, they're at home, it's a long trip for a Cardinals team that is riding a two month losing streak, and the Jets have the benefit of extra time to prepare. As bad as they are, there are more reasons to pick the Jets than the Cards.
Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 17
Dave Dulberg The Jets are 2-4 at home this season, with their four losses coming by an average of 22.7 points per game. The Cardinals are the first NFL team in history to a season 4-0 only to lose their next seven games. The scheduling gods have made it so that one of those awful statistics has to come to a screeching halt on Sunday. Unfortunately for Cardinals fans, brace yourself for loss No. 8. When Mark Sanchez is the more competent starting quarterback, you know you're in for a long day. Ryan Lindley won't throw four INTs this week, but he'll turn the ball over just enough to keep Arizona from competing late.
Final Score: Jets 24, Cardinals 14
Carter Nacke Sunday is going to be ugly. The Jets have been struggling almost as bad as the Cardinals, and Sunday is going to be a toss-up. However, I'm predicting the upset. Cards D is going to come up big and a last-second Feely FG will seal the.
Final Score: Cardinals 16, Jets 13
Charlie Feinerman Finally, the Cardinals will end the losing streak. Ryan Lindley has a big game, showing his full potential with at least 250 yards, 3 touchdown passes and one interception. The Jets (unless it becomes Tebow Time) will gain a total of 150 yards against the Cardinals defense. Patrick Peterson finally get a punt return touchdown.
Final Score: Cardinals 24, Jets 3
Katy Hartley So Lindley is starting and the Cards have lost their center… Looks to be another underwhelming performance by the offense… The defense might be able to keep it close, but typically the Cards struggle on the East coast - I think Jets have the edge with home field advantage.
Final Score: Jets 24, Cardinals 17
James Mello The Cardinals are better in every phase of the game at this point in the season. There are very few teams the Cardinals could say that about offensively, but the Jets are one of them. Offensively the Cards still have more talent because of a lack of receiving threats for the Jets. The Cardinals' main goal offensively will be to just not lose the game. The defense of the Cards will be able to create problems early and often against the Jets. If they were able to intercept Matt Ryan five times, Mark Sanchez should be no issue. Arizona is better on special teams as well, which was shown by the consistent blunders on Thanksgiving by the Jets against New England. Low scoring game but Arizona wins.
Final Score: Cardinals 14, Jets 10
