The Arizona Cardinals sit atop the vaunted NFC West with a 4-1 record, yet they continue to be looked over in the national conversation.
In a debate on NFL Network over which team is the NFC’s best, six teams were discussed — Dallas, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Green Bay and Detroit. No mention of the Cardinals.

While arguments can certainly be made for having the 5-1 Cowboys and Eagles above the Cardinals on this list, the other four teams have each lost two games. San Francisco even lost to the Cardinals 23-14 in Week 3.
Meanwhile, Arizona’s lone loss came against the defending AFC champion Broncos in Denver. The Cardinals were forced to start their backup quarterback in that game as well.
Dating back to last season, the Cardinals have won 11 of their last 14 games.
Arizona continues to fly under the radar as they head to Oakland on Sunday looking to improve to 5-1.
