Notable: With three games to go, the Cardinals find themselves right in the playoff hunt after winning five of their past six games. The game against the Titans, though, is a must-win.

St. Louis Rams

Record: 5-8.

Last week: Lost to Arizona, 30-10.

This week: vs. New Orleans, 1:25 p.m.

Notable: Impressive victories over the Colts and Bears have given way to a harsher reality: The Rams have lost two consecutive and very easily could finish with 10 defeats.

San Francisco 49ers

Record: 9-4.

Last week: Beat Seattle, 19-17.

This week: at Tampa Bay, 10 a.m.

Notable: There are those around the league who think the 49ers are the second-best team in the NFC behind the Seahawks, in large part because of their defense. They’ve given up more than 17 points just once in their past seven games.
