I'm one of those rare breed that was born in Arizona -- and stayed here. I've been following AZ sports, and particularly the Suns, for most of my breathing moments. I love editing and writing and sports, so landing here at SB Nation Arizona is pretty much ideal. I'm stoked to help make SB Nation the first and most important name in quality sports blogging.
The Suns continue their road trip against a lesser Eastern Conference team. Can they continue to beat teams they're supposed to beat?
While half of the NFC West took 'er easy this week, the Arizona Cardinals continued their losing streak against the Packers and the Seattle Seahawks took a step back above .500 in beating the Vikings.
Only one NFC West team won this week, and that was probably only because there was an inter-divisional game this week and one of those teams had to win. The San Francisco 49ers now stand alone atop the division.
As the D-backs' season winds to a close, Paul Goldschmidt and Trevor Cahill have secured this week's Player and Pitcher of the Week awards.
Aaron Hill and Wade Miley are the Player and Pitcher of the Week for the Arizona Diamondbacks as they cling to slim playoff hopes.
