After a 9-2 start to the 2014 season, the Cardinals rank number one in the National Football Conference (NFC) West Division, ahead of Seattle (7-4) and San Francisco (7-4). Carson Palmer, now out of competition with a torn left ACL, leads the team in throwing with a 62.9 percent pass completion for 1,626 yards and a 95.6 quarterback rating. Since Palmer’s injury, backup quarterback Drew Stanton has helped the Cardinals maintain their division leadership. Other key players include Larry Fitzgerald, who has amassed an average of 14.3 receiving yards per game, and Andre Ellington, who has rushed for 3.3 yards per carry.
The Arizona Cardinals recently signed Michael Bush, former running back of the Chicago Bears. Standing at 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighing 245 pounds, Brown brings six years of NFL experience to the Arizona running game.
