    The Cardinals open the second half of the 2018 regular season with a trip to Kansas City for a matchup against the AFC West-leading Chiefs. Arizona is returning from its off week with three consecu ve matchups against AFC West opponents. Star ng this week, Arizona has a six-game stretch in which they won't face a division opponent. A er facing San Francisco in Week 8, Arizona doesn't play another game against an NFC West opponent un l Week 16 (vs. LA Rams). This Sunday's matchup will be just the sixth game the Cardinals have ever played in Kansas City and the fi rst since 2010. Arizona will travel to Arrow- head Stadium looking for its fi rst-ever road win against the Chiefs. The Cardinals won the last mee ng between these two teams, earning a 17-14 victory at State Farm Stadium in Week 14 of the 2014 season. The last me Arizona played in Kansas City during the regular season (Week 11 of 2010) WR Larry Fitzgerald entered the game with 7,668 career receiv- ing yards. He enters this week with 15,902 yards and needs just 33 yards to pass Terrell Owens for second place behind Jerry Rice on the all- me list. Helping call the ac on on Sunday will be former Arizona head coach Bruce Arians, who is serving as a color analyst for the CBS broadcast. The win- ningest head coach in Cardinals history, Arians spent fi ve seasons (2013-17) with Arizona before he re red from coaching following the 2017 season. Prior to having off in Week 9, the Cardinals earned a come-from-behind 18-15 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at State Farm Stadium. In the debut of Byron Le wich as Arizona's new off ensive coordinator, rookie QB Josh Rosen led the Cardinals back from a 12-point fourth quarter defi cit and threw the winning TD to fellow rookie WR Chris an Kirk will just :34 remaining in regula on. Arizona's defense also aided in the comeback, keeping the 49ers scoreless in their fi nal three possessions as the Cardinals scored 15 unanswered points. Next week the Cardinals return home to host the Oakland Raiders before going back on the road for games against the Chargers (Week 12 at LA) and Packers (Week 13 at GB). Arizona's road game against the Chargers will mark the Cardinals fi rst-ever appearance at StubHub Center. Kansas City will follow up this week's matchup with an appearance on Mon- day Night Football in Mexico City, where they will face the Rams.

    THE HIGHLIGHTS --Sunday's game will mark the 13th all- me mee ng between the Cardinals and Chiefs in a series that dates back to 1970. This week's game will come 48 years a er the teams played to a 6-6 e in their fi rst-ever mee ng. --The last me the Cardinals and Chiefs faced each other was in 2014. The only players on the Cards current roster that were with the team for that game are WR Larry Fitzgerald, CB Patrick Peterson and $LB Deone Bucan- non. Nine players on the Chiefs current roster were with the team then. --When the Cardinals take the fi eld in Kansas City, it will mark just their sec- ond game in a span of 24 days. Arizona faced Denver on TNF in Week 7 and a er an extended break hosted the 49ers in Week 8. The Cardinals were then off in Week 9. --Cardinals RB David Johnson (39 in 41 career games) and Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (24 in 25 career games) have combined for 63 career TDs. They have combined for 44 rushing TDs, 18 receiving TDs and one kickoff return TD in their young NFL careers. --In the Week 8 win vs. San Francisco, QB Josh Rosen became the youngest QB in the Super Bowl era to win a game by leading his team back from a double-digit defi cit in the fourth quarter. --Against the Niners, DE Markus Golden - who missed the fi nal 12 games last season and the fi rst two contests of 2018 with a knee injury - recorded his fi rst full sack in 666 days (1 year, 9 months and 28 days).
