NFL Power Rankings: Cardinals Find Themselves Near The Bottom

The Arizona Cardinals are at No. 31 in the latest NFL power rankings from SB Nation's Joel Thorman. The Cardinals fell from their post-draft ranking, when they were at No. 26.

Thorman, like most around the NFL, is concerned about the quarterback situation in Arizona:

31. Arizona Cardinals (LW: 26): That quarterback battle made me feel a lot better about ranking them 31st.

With John Skelton finally named as the Cardinals starter, the team is hoping to move forward as they prepare to face the Seattle Seahawks in the season opener on Sunday afternoon at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Arizona finds themselves last among NFC West squads. The 49ers check in the highest at No. 8, while the Seattle Seahawks are next at No. 24. The Rams are just ahead of the Cards in 28th.
