Each week, TSN.ca takes a look at the top storylines in the NFL and gives you all you need to know heading into Sundays action. All in! Cardinals get their divisional mettle tested in Seattle First off, let’s throw out the idea Arizona has cruised to their league-leading 9-1 record through an easy schedule. Amongst their nine victories are wins over five teams with winning records, three of which either lead or share the lead in their division. But they’ve yet to really get their hands dirty in their own division. Through the first 11 weeks of the season Arizona has only played San Francisco once and has yet to even see Seattle. That all changes this week; the Cardinals have three big divisional games in their last six weeks starting this Sunday against the Seahawks. Arizona is a good team, maybe even a very good team, but their divisional mettle has yet to have been tested. And with Drew Stanton behind centre the rest of the year, Sunday’s game against Seattle kicks off a stretch that will determine if the Cards can cope without Carson Palmer. Lions to crash back to earth in New England? Two division leaders face off Sunday at Gillette Stadium; one of which however, is a division leader in record only. No not the Falcons. The Detroit Lions have used as much good fortune as anything else to climb to the top of the NFC North. But if luck were to run out on the Lions, this will likely be the game. Joking aside, this could be a real offensive battle. With Reggie Bush expected back and Calvin Johnson still moderately healthy, Detroit could score some points. Matching up against Tom Brady, who has been fantastic since the media dared question if he was running out of gas, Rob Gronkowski, once again the league’s best tight end, and Jonas Grey, who might be a thing now, it’d be wise to take the over (weather permitting of course). Josh Gordon makes his highly anticipated return It’s a good time to be Brian Hoyer. Through 11 weeks of the season he has held off fan favourite Johnny Manziel to lead the Browns to a surprising 6-4 record; even if Cleveland brass perhaps foolishly does turn to Manziel at the end of the year, there are reports of several teams interested in his services; and now he gets his top receiver back. Josh Gordon wasn’t just good last season, he was the best. It’s great news for the Browns, whose top receiver heading into Week 12 is former Montreal Alouette Andrew Hawkins; and good news for football fans in general, who get to welcome back a superstar to their Sundays. Gordon led the league with 1,646 receiving yards last season – 303 of which came in the three games Hoyer started before getting injured. Gordon has reportedly been keeping in shape during his 10-game suspension; here’s hoping the Browns don’t handle him with kid gloves, easing him back into the lineup, and just let the superstar fly. To make matters more interesting, both the Falcons and Browns are clinging to playoff hopes, and a loss - more so for Cleveland than Atlanta - could end their postseason dreams. Packers-Vikings Round 2 Rivarly games, especially ones this heated, are always worth keeping an eye on and will have their spot in this column. But this one could be rough. The Packers beat the Vikings by 32 points in their first meeting and are arguably playing at a higher level coming into Round 2. Aaron Rodgers is closing the gap in the MVP race in a big way the past few weeks; he has more than 1,000 passing yards and 10 touchdowns in his last three games. Much like a Heisman hopeful uses out of conference games to pad his stats, so too could Rodgers against the Vikings. Chasing the Patriots, both Dolphins and Broncos eager for win The Dolphins and Broncos don’t have much in common this year but they are both chasing the New England Patriots. Miami’s race is of course for the AFC East, with the Dolphins currently a full two games behind. They do however, currently hold the season series with one game to go. Denver’s race is for the AFC in general, or more specifically the always coveted home field advantage throughout the playoffs. While Denver is just one game behind the Pats in their race, New England holds the tiebreaker making their situation nearly as desperate as Miami’s. Both teams have other reasons to want to win of course. The Dolphins are in the thick of the wildcard race while the Broncos will want to keep pace with the Kansas City Chiefs after they beat the Raiders on Thursday.

So, when they finally got to add another digit to their win total, the Orioles didnt really care if the outcome was influenced by their opponents mistakes. Brian Roberts and Manny Machado both hit two-run doubles during a seven-run third inning fueled by Colorado miscues, and Baltimore defeated the Rockies 8-4 Saturday night to end a four-game skid. Adam Jones had two hits in Baltimores highest-scoring inning of the season, which featured an error by shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, two walks, a passed ball and a wild pitch. Six of the seven runs were unearned, but when it was done the Orioles had an 8-1 lead. "It was huge," winning pitcher Bud Norris said. "It was a tough stretch there in Arizona. But just to be back in the win column was huge. To have a seven-run third inning is definitely a help to any starting pitcher going out there. I just wanted to keep putting up zeroes and the bullpen really came in and picked me up, too." Norris (9-10) gave up four runs and nine hits over 5 2-3 innings to improve to 3-1 since coming to the Orioles in a trade with Houston on July 31. He was followed by a relief corps that allowed only three hits the rest of way. "This is the big leagues. The third inning with a seven-run lead is never comfortable," said Tommy Hunter, who worked the ninth. "Guys came in and threw the ball well in certain situations and got us to the end of the ballgame with a four-run lead." Most of the damage in the third inning came against Colorado rookie Chad Bettis (0-2), who allowed seven hits, four walks and eight runs in 2 2-3 innings. "It was really embarrassing," Bettis said. "I need to be better. I wasnt making the right pitches." Baltimores third inning began with a double by Chris Davis and an infield hit by Jones. Nick Markakis followed with an RBI single, and one out later Colorado brought the infield in with runners on second and third. Steve Pearce hit a grounder that got past Tulowitzki, allowing Jones to score. "I think Tul probably looked up to see if the runner was taking off from third," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "But, hes been as good as you can possibly be at shoortstop.dddddddddddd Hes not going to make every play for six months." Following the second out, Roberts doubled in two runs, Nate McLouth walked and Machado hit his major league-leading 43rd double. Adam Ottavino replaced Bettis and walked Davis before Jones delivered an RBI single for a seven-run cushion. "Ive never been a part of a bad seven-run inning, when youre the one scoring it," Roberts said. "Obviously, we needed a little something to kind of jump start us and that was big, to use the extra out they gave us to put some runs on the board. Everyone kind of breathed a little sigh of relief and said, All right. Now were ready to go." Dexter Fowler hit RBI singles in the fourth and sixth innings for the Rockies, who lost for only the second time in eight games. Colorado stranded 11 and went 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position. Jones had three hits and Davis picked up his 113th RBI to help the Orioles secure their first victory since beating San Francisco last Sunday. "I think people panic a little more outside the clubhouse than we do inside the clubhouse," Roberts said. "We all still feel like we are in pretty good shape." Colorado got two hits and two walks in the first inning but scored only once, when Tulowitzki bounced into a double play. In the bottom half, McLouth drew a leadoff walk, advanced on a single by Machado and came home on a fly ball by Davis. Although the Orioles left the bases loaded in the second, they made up for it in the third. NOTES: Orioles SS J.J. Hardy was late scratch with back spasms.
