Josh Rosen may be the NFL’s biggest bargain. So what are teams waiting for?

It makes sense why the overhauling Cardinals want to move on from last year’s first-round pick after one season. Why no quarterback-needy team has snatched him up is less clear Here is the worst-kept secret heading into this month’s NFL draft: the Ariz…

  • Heap, 37, was behind the wheel when he accidentally struck the girl
  • ‘This is knee-buckling news,’ say Baltimore Ravens, Heap’s former team

Arizona police said Heap was behind the wheel when he struck the girl while moving the vehicle forward outside their home in Mesa on Friday.

Patriots’ Floyd faces jail after being found asleep at wheel with BAC of .217

  • Receiver was cut by Cardinals before being signed by New England
  • Floyd’s blood alcohol content qualified him for ‘super extreme DUI’

Police in Scottsdale, Arizona say New England Patriots receiver Michael Floyd had a blood alcohol content of .217 when he was arrested for suspicion of DUI last week. This means Floyd could receive jail time for what the state calls a “super extreme DUI.” The legal blood-alcohol limit in Arizona is 0.08, meaning Floyd was nearly three times over the limit. 

Floyd, then a member of the Arizona Cardinals, was arrested on 12 December hours after the Cardinals lost a game to the Miami Dolphins. He was found asleep at the wheel of his car – with the engine still running – at a traffic signal. The Cardinals cut him two days later and he was picked up by New England in a move that received some dubious applause from NFL observers, given the potential of Floyd, a former first-round pick.

NFL weekend predictions: Giants to end Lions’ winning streak

The Lions are riding a five-game winning run, but Matthew Stafford’s finger injury could spell trouble. Plus, go for the Vikings, Steelers and Cardinals

The finish line is in sight. Only three weeks remain in the NFL’s regular season, and that means you only have three more shots at a clean sweep in our Pick Six contest. Nobody managed it in week 14, although castigers did make a big move up to the top of our overall leaderboard with a solid five out of six.

London’s four NFL games in 2017 to be held at Wembley and Twickenham

• Three NFL franchises will play in London for the first time next year
• Baltimore Ravens make maiden trip to face Jacksonville Jaguars

Three NFL franchises will play in London for the first time next year as part of a four-game schedule that will see back-to-back contests staged at Wembley and successive matches hosted at Twickenham.

The Cleveland Browns, who are yet to win a game in 2016, will be the home team against the Minnesota Vikings at Twickenham, which will also be the venue for a Los Angeles Rams “home” game again, this time against the Arizona Cardinals, who were one win away from last year’s Super Bowl.

NFL weekend predictions: Cowboys to seal NFC East title against Giants

The Cowboys can take revenge on the only team to have beaten them this season, and go for San Diego, Arizona, Washington, San Francisco and Seattle

Some people spend a whole lifetime striving for greatness. Others are simply born with it. We can only assume DrUHomes falls into the latter category. Last week was the third time they have ever taken part in our Pick Six contest – and the second in which they have called every single game correctly.

NFL weekend predictions: Falcons to check Chiefs’ postseason push

The NFC South-leading Falcons should have too much for Kansas City – and expect the 49ers to top the Bears thanks to Colin Kaepernick’s good recent form

Last week I messed up. A copy-and-paste error led to me failing to recognise fully half of the contestants who had correctly called all six games correctly in week 11, and for that I can only apologise. Well, that and belatedly seek to make amends. Congratulations to FatSamurai, Flattery2 and especially to Angchan – to whom this has somehow now happened twice in the same season. Sorry!

Five others matched their achievements in week 12, so please remain on your feet, ladies and gentlemen, as we offer bobajob86, DSizzle2013, FraserAH, onestepforward and Steve Mansfield an equally rapturous round of applause. And then plonk yourself down in your comfiest chair, and get to picking this weeks games.

The Panthers’ lousy start has got worse – and now Cam Newton is hurt

The Panthers and the Cardinals faced each other in last season’s NFC Championship game. This season, they both have 1-3 records and serious concerns about the health of their starting quarterbacks

Back in January, the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals faced each other in the NFC Championship game for the right to represent their conference in the Super Bowl. After what happened on Sunday, a playoffs rematch looks highly unlikely. On Sunday both teams saw their records fall to 1-3 following brutal losses where they lost their franchise quarterbacks, at least temporarily, to possible concussions.

NFL wrap: Vikings batter Newton to end Panthers streak, Bills shock Cardinals

  • Trevor Siemian throws four touchdown passes for Broncos

Sam Bradford threw a touchdown pass to Kyle Rudolph, Marcus Sherels returned a punt for a score and the Minnesota Vikings snapped the Carolina Panthers’ 14-game home winning streak 22-10 on Sunday.

The Vikings (3-0) put the clamps on Cam Newton, intercepting the league’s reigning MVP three times and sacking him eight times, one of those resulting in a safety by Danielle Hunter. The eight sacks were the second-most ever against Newton.

NFC West preview: is No1 pick Jared Goff already a bust for the Rams?

The Rams are back in LA but it looks like they gave up too much to grab their new quarterback in a division with the formidable Seahawks and Cardinals

The 2015 campaign was a magical one for the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback. He ranked second in the league in touchdowns and fourth in total passing yards. There were career highs across the board on his stat sheet, and he led Arizona to the NFC title game — coming up short against the Cam Newton juggernaut in Carolina. This sounds like it should bode well for the Cardinals in 2016, but those gaudy, MVP-calibre numbers came after a season where Palmer played only six games due to injury. He’ll be turning 37 in December and while the quarterback position might be the safest it’s ever been in the modern NFL, age catches up to you. In his 13-year career, he’s only played every game in a season seven times. For comparison, Tom Brady — who’s 39 and has even more miles on him due to all his deep playoff runs — has played all 16 games in 13 out of 16 seasons. A regression seems likely, just because the idea of Palmer having back-to-back hall of fame-level seasons is hard to count on.

Trailblazing NFL coach Dennis Green was far more than just a soundbite

The longtime Vikings coach wasn’t the first African-American coach in NFL history, but his steady success opened doors for the many who followed

For many football fans, Dennis Green will be remembered for one thing. His rant after a 2006 game when his Arizona Cardinals lost to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football is probably one of the 10 best coach blow-ups of all time. Most mentions of his name are quickly followed by the refrain: “The Bears are what we thought they were.”

But to recall Green, who died of a heart attack on Friday at 67, as a caricature from a video clip is unfair. He was far more than a guy who got mad after a nationally televised loss in a football game. He was an essential coach at an important time for the NFL. He made one of the most cherished and lucrative destination jobs in professional sports – NFL head coach – a possibility for many African-American men who never thought such a chance was real.
