Home, Sweep Home

Only the Arizona Cardinals could come up with a notion as nutty as road-field advantage.

4-0 away from home in ’09, they’re a puny 1-3 at University of Phoenix Stadium, where they went 6-2 in ’08 on their way to the Super Bowl. Another huge factor in last year’s success was their sweep of the NFC West. Though that’s a moot point this year, the Redbirds could still accomplish something that would have been unthinkable only a couple years back with their second W in a month against the once-indomitable Seattle Seahawks, who the Cardinals pasted, 27-3, on Puget Sound October 18.
