(AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) 2015 NFL Power Rankings: Week 8#6 (up 4 spots)With one of the NFL’s best coaching staffs, the Cardinals are equipped to win games even when a few big plays don’t go their way. Carson Palmer has made an early bid for both Comeback Player of the Year and MVP and he’s tied for the league lead with 16 touchdown passes.NFL Power Rankings: Where Does Every Team Rank Heading into Week 8?#6 (up 3 spots)The Arizona Cardinals came close to blowing what should have been a cakewalk game Monday night. They held a 26-10 lead over the Baltimore Ravens with just over eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Then two special teams blunders—a missed extra-point attempt and a blocked punt—gave Baltimore an opening.But they held on, and if we set aside the glaring special teams gaffes, the other 52-ish minutes of gametime featured another domination of an inferior opponent. And the Cardinals did it with an offensive dimension that was missing in 2014.They have a rushing attack that’s beyond just reliable now, which was the low bar set a year ago. Running back Chris Johnson is acting like it’s 2009 again, and he’s the driving force behind his offense.After 122 more rushing yards Monday night he’s averaging 5.1 yards per carry this season. This is when I remind you the Cardinals averaged only 3.3 YPC as a team in 2015.

And then along came ol’ Benjamin Button Chris Johnson, 30 as of Sept. 23, rediscovering his game in the desert. Monday night’s showing vs. Baltimore was as close to CJ2K as we’ve seen in a long time.
