The Cardinals gave up 333 yards and 21 points in the first half but picked off C.J. Stroud three times and held the Houston Texans scoreless in the second half. However, they fell short of their comeback, losing 21-16 in Houston.

All four teams play in Week 12 in two divisional games.

  • The Seahawks and 49ers play in Seattle. The Niners could take a commanding two-game lead or Seattle could take over first place with a head-to-head tiebreaker.
  • The Cardinals and Rams play for the second time this season, this time in Arizona.
