TEMPE, Ariz. -- Peyton Manning won’t be the only one trying some trickery at the line of scrimmage Sunday in Denver.
The Cardinals defense believes it’s found the key to slowing down Manning and the Broncos’ 10th-ranked passing attack. All it will take is a hat, a fake mustache and a pair of glasses.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Hang out at home and still move up in this week's ESPN NFL Power Rankings?
The Arizona Cardinals will take it.
Thanks to loss by the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cardinals moved up one spot to fourth, behind No. 1 Seattle, No. 2 Cincinnati and No. 3 Denver -- this week's opponent.

RENTON, Wash. -- The shoes were the solution, according to Seattle Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor.
Chancellor said his issue with ankle pain has been alleviated for now by changing the type of shoes he was wearing.
“It must be the high tops,” Chancellor said Tuesday after practice. “I was playing with low tops. I switched, well, maybe to more mid tops. But I have more support for my ankles.”
Chancellor said changing his shoes made him realize he could get by without undergoing surgery for bone spurs in his ankles, something he considered after struggling in Seattle's 30-21 loss at San Diego.
