Arizona's offense was very bad last season and not much, if any, better through seven games this year.
A new, offensive-minded coach and a new quarterback have yet to solve the issue that has been at the heart of the franchise's problems since Kurt Warner retired after the 2009 season.
Now coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer are looking at a schedule over the next month that holds hope for something better.
Palmer calls it a stretch of "very winnable games."
It starts with an Oct. 27 home game against Atlanta. That will be followed by a bye week, then a home game against Houston and a trip to Jacksonville.
That's a bit less daunting than facing San Francisco and Seattle in a five-day span.
