1. Adrian Wilson: The Cardinals should use the nine-year veteran near the line of scrimmage to slow down the explosive Chris Johnson who has already registered more than 1,200 yards this season. Wilson will help load up the box against the No. 1 running team in the league.
2. Beanie Wells: The rookie's fumble in last week's game against the St. Louis Rams could have set him back, but the Cardinals continued to trust Wells in last week's game. His production has increased ten-fold. While the Titans are much better on run-defense than against the pass, when the Cardinals run the ball Wells should see plenty of reps.
3. Antrel Rolle: The fifth-year safety is on pace to have his best season yet. Defensive coordinator Bill Davis puts Rolle on the quarterback's tail more often than in Rolle's previous years with the ball club. Rolle compiled the first 1.5 sacks of his career. Rolle is also pick worthy. With four on the season, he should easily surpass his season-high five in 2007.
4. Anquan Boldin: The Titans are one of the worst teams in the NFL when it comes to defending against the pass. QB Kurt Warner could have a field day playing playground football. One of his favorite targets should be Boldin who has been relatively quiet this season. He is on track for his second-straight 1,000-plus yard season. But compared to last season's 11 touchdowns, his two this year seem dismal.
5. Monty Beisel: The Cardinals re-signed the linebacker this week. After three years with the Cardinals, he was picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs. The Cardinals expect Beisel to not miss a beat from his former role with the team.
With injuries down the stretch, Beisel will add much needed depth and even help on special teams.
