"I've already talked to the league and it's illegal to comment on officiating." – Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he's already spoken with the league about the circumstances surrounding the blocked field goal in the second quarter of Sunday night's 6-6 tie, when Seattle LB Bobby Wagner leaped over LS Aaron Brewer to block K Chandler Catanzaro's 39-yard field goal attempt.

If there was any idea the Vikings were overconfident coming out of their bye week, Zimmer didn't seem to share it. There are few things that irk the coach more than dumb mistakes, and he saw plenty of them in his film review of the Vikings' 21-10 loss to the Eagles.
