New Orleans Saints (2-5) at Arizona Cardinals (3-4), Cardinals win 42-34

The New Orleans Saints dropped 42-34 to the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., after committing three first-half turnovers, two of which ended in pick-sixes. Arizona scored two touchdowns in the second half for the first time in almost five years to score more than 40 points.

Especially with Hopkins back in the mix, with an impressive debut with 10 grabs and over 100 yards, the Cardinals appear to have regained their swagger back.

Bears (2-4) at Patriots (3-3),MNF, 8:15 p.m.,:

Bailey Zappe of New England adds progressively good credentials to his first attempt at becoming a prime-time player. Since Sonny Jurgensen in 1957, he is the first rookie quarterback to win his first two starts and have a passing rating of 100 or higher.

The Patriots are 21-10 in Monday night games under Bill Belichick, and they have won five straight games versus the Bears dating back to 2002.
