Brett Favre decision affects Cardinals

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- There had to be a way for the NFC West blog to siphon off some Brett Favre-related traffic on its way North.

This is it: While every NFC West team played the Favre-led Minnesota Vikings last season, the Arizona Cardinals are the only team from the division with a potential 2010 rematch on the schedule. The Cardinals visit Minnesota on Nov. 7, a matchup born of an NFL scheduling rotation pitting 2009 NFC West and NFC North champions against one another.

The Cardinals were the only NFC West team to solve Favre last season. They dominated most of the way during a 30-17 victory.
