Some of the Arizona Cardinals are saying Sunday's matchup in Denver is just another game.
Inside linebacker Larry Foote and coach Bruce Arians know otherwise.
Foote calls it a "statement game," a contest that, if Arizona was to pull off the upset, would leave the Cardinals unbeaten and shape the national perception of the team as a legitimate power in the NFL.
Arians says it's special to play against someone like Peyton Manning on a national stage, with the game the featured afternoon contest on Fox.
Arizona is a 7½-point underdog, and the Cardinals will once again be without quarterback Carson Palmer, who remains sidelined with a "dead" nerve in his throwing shoulder.
Drew Stanton will get his third straight start at quarterback for the Cardinals.
