Cardinals champs in West with win

Related News/Archive

PHILADELPHIA — The Cardinals can check division champions off their to-do list.

David Johnson ran for 187 yards and three touchdowns and Carson Palmer threw a touchdown pass as Arizona clinched the NFC West title.

The Cardinals can earn a first-round bye with a win over Green Bay this Sunday. They still could be the No. 1 seed if they win out and Carolina loses its last two.

The Eagles still control their playoff destiny. They would win the NFC East title if they beat Washington at home Saturday and the Giants on the road on Jan. 3.

Johnson, a rookie filling in for injured backs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington, had two 1-yard touchdown runs and a 47-yarder.

Standout Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu limped off after intercepting Sam Bradford in the fourth quarter. There was no immediate word on his injury.
