The Arizona Cardinals, or "Pittsburgh West" as they're affectionately known by the Pittsburgh Steelers' fan base, will make a visit to Heinz Field this Sunday for an interconference game with plenty of story lines and connections.
Bruce Arians, who "retired" from the Steelers, is the head coach. Larry Fitzgerald went to the Univeristy of Pittsburgh and used to be a self-proclaimed "yinzer." LaMarr Woodley is a current member of the Cardinals team...just to name a few. Oh yeah, and this is a rematch of one of the most exciting Super Bowls in the past 20 years, when the Steelers defeated the Cardinals in Super Bowl 43 in dramatic fashion.
Regardless, the 4-1 Cardinals will be looking to beat the 3-2 Steelers on their home turf as they continue their NFC dominance.
