Why this game is intriguing: A battle between two 4-2 teams, and it's the ninth-best game? Really? That speaks to the quality of games this week, especially with drama present in so many. Featuring two unsuspectingly good teams with surprisingly effective defenses and run-based offenses, this matchup simply doesn't have the star power of some of the other showdowns. Wait a year or so, though, because Christian Ponder has the potential to reach NFL stardom. He's led this insanely young team to stunning success so far this year.
What to watch: The Cardinals' 4-0 start, which had the entire NFL talking, is starting to look like fool's gold. But new (and old) starter John Skelton will try to prove that wrong. Losing to the Rams in a road Thursday night game is not crushing, but succumbing to the Bills at home might be. If Arizona doesn't turn Ponder over early, and if it can't stop power runner Adrian Peterson, it'll be a sure road loss that will make us wonder who that team was that started so hot.
