Injury stricken Steelers lost Montravius Adams with ankle issues and a multitude of players placed on the I.L. The Cardinals also had their fair share of injuries with Zach Pascal, Michael Wilson, and Starling Thomas V out for the week, as well as several others limited in practice or placed on I.L. These injuries could potentially play a huge role in both team’s upcoming performances.

Division Standings

After this game, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still holding the 2nd position in the AFC North Division, while the Arizona Cardinals remain at the bottom of NFC West Division. This victory, however, gives the Cardinals a considerable boost as they look to claw back up in the standings.

Upcoming Games

As they move into the next week, the Steelers must bounce back from this loss to maintain their position in the tight AFC North race. The Cardinals, on the other hand, will attempt to carry their winning momentum into their upcoming games.


This was a memorable win for the Cardinals, who outperformed the Steelers in every aspect of the game. However, both teams need to address their injury concerns if they aim to establish any dominance in their respective divisions. The season is still far from over, and each game will be vital moving forward.
