>> on this date in 2009 when the cardinals won their last nfc west division tiblgts.tle. you do it again tonight. i knowowou have loftier goalal
but how gratifying is this? >> very gratifying. to come in here against a team that needs this win also. this is a grown man behind you who couldn't be prouder o of the way he broke tackles and always fell forward. >> you set a single season record for points. you had this guy, as you mentioiod, david junsonohohon, run r three touchdowns. what is it like to quarterback an offense when you have so many options? >> it's a blast, it's a blast to be part of this group. we come to work every day and grind it out did you aring the week. we're coached hard and play hard on sundays. it's been a blast. >> you injured the index finger on your throwing hand. we saw you get it taped up. >> i i worrying about tyrara right now. that it's just a bump on the
but you hate to see that, the and been praying for him nonstop. will continue to do so, hope he's all right. >> we're talking about tyrann mathieu who injured himself just before the game. congratulations. >> thank you. >> we'll update you on tyrann mathieu when we can. but david johnson, three touchdowns. talk a aut the second one. a 47-y-yder. take us through that run. what were you seeing? >> just an outside zone. i had good blocking where i was able to cut back. brokeles and stiff arms and got in. >> you're a rookie who has been able to step in. how have you handled all the responsibility thahaentails? >> always talking to carson and talklkg to stump and andre trying to get better every day and getting ready to help out our team. >> as a rookie, you come in and get a 12-win season and win the division. what is this like? >> feels great.
hopefully continue the success and get ready for green bay and come back and get ready. >> big night. congratulations. >> thank you. >> michele, thanks, with regard to tyrann mathieu he's already been in and out of x-ray, but we don't have word yet on what that revealed. if we get any information before we leave the air, we'll pass it on to you. let's take a look at the nfc playoff picture with this result. if washington wins here saturday night in philadelphia, then washington wins the division, but if philly win, the eagles, giants and washington could all enter week 17 with a chance at the title. seattle and green bay clinched playoff berth and minnesota is all but assured of getting in. tony, a lot of focus on the unbeaten panthers as well as the streaking seahawks, but the nfc west champion cardinals have now won eight straight themselves. who do you see as the most dangerous team in the nfc? >> looking at the cardinals
fantastic. i'm going to put my vote in for them. very solid on both sides of the ball. we know about that big play passing offense, that blitzing defense, but to me, david johnson, such a differencemaker. bruce arians and tom moore, one of their offensive coaches, they were in indianapolis. this guy reminds me of edgerrin james, playing physical, long runs, catching the ball. he could be that wildcard that really gives them the edge. i like w wt i saw from the cardinalscard cardinals tonight. >> they still have a small chance to overtake the panthers for the number one seed but they can be overtaken by green bay for number two as well. the patriots clinched a bye today while the texans won in indy. the chiefs, steelers and jets all won this week, with kansas city and now pittsburgh having the tie breaker edge in the wildcard race. but t ter that denver lossssnd with the broncos playing
think the chiefs who kind of off the radar have won eight straight, do you think they can win the division? >> i do, bob, and here's why. they've got two home games left with cleveland and then finishing with oakland. i believe they'll win those two home games. if they tie with denver, they'll win the division a a denver has that game you mentioned against cincinnati. denver is not playing great on offense. they had some great plays today but not moving the ball well. cincinnati can score points. i can see cincinnati going in there and winning and kansas city winning their two games and being the western division champions. >> we turn to mike florio of pro football talk. it got ugly between odell beckham jr. and josh norman today at the meadowlands, papaicularly with some o o beckham's actions off the ball. what sort of response are you expecting from the league this week? >> i'm told the league office believes that odell beckham jr. should have been ejected from
he wasn't. now will it go beyond merely imposing fines. would they suspend him particularly for a violent helmeteto helmet hit on josh norman under circumstances that there was no reason for that hit to be applied. it will happen on monday. he'll have independent appeal rights. it would all happen quickly, so beckham would know, the giants would know in next sunday night's game if he'd be available to practice and play. we'll keep an eye on adrian peterson's ankle this week. he sprayed it against the bears. he missed some time, came back, he didn't have x-rays, he didn't know whether he'd have an mri, but he sprained it. >> why a gifted play like odell beckham jr. would diminish himself and his team with play

we got two more to get now. let's go. team on three, one, twoey, ytwo,o,hree, team. >> no further update on ty mathieu. the cardinals keep on going. they really got something going right now. >> they look like they can do anything. they can run the ball. they obviously can throw it. their defense is good. tyrann mathieu, that's a big deal. that guy does just about everything on the defensive side. >> so giants and vikings next week. you heard mike talking about the league thought he should have been ejectct. our frfrnds troy and joe were on top of that. i don't believe they haven't thrown him out of the game. we'll see what happens. if he gets suspended or not, we don't know. but the giants who still have a chance to win the east. how does that happen? if the giants win their next two in minnesota and they beat philadelphia and washington were to lose two here and then washington goes to dallas, the giant was be in. philly controls its own fate. they win two and they're in, you get washington on top of thehe
it is just crazy in the nfc east. >> i'm glad you did all that. >> i think i know what i'm talking about, but not that often. but anyway, an interesting matchup. we'll see about adrian peterson. minnesota, of course, still vying for a playoff spot even though green bay leads in that division. still a chance to win the nfc north. but mike zimmer has done some job. >> minnesota took this arizona team that impressed us so much tonight right to the wire. it was a last-minute sack by dwight freeney that held them in that game. you know how good a team minnesota is. >> seeing the greawhite north next week. >> cannot wait. happy birthday, michele. >> and merry christmas, everybody. we'll talk to you next sunday from minneapolis. so the final score tonight was 40-17, al michaels, cris collinsworth and michele tafoya, for the gang up hererenatalie
