NFL Notes: Cardinals, Colts, Eagles, & Texans



Cardinals HC Bruce Arians told reporters on  Monday that they have no plans to reset their players against the Seahawks in Week 17.

“We will approach this game like it’s game one,” said Arians, per Kent Somers. “I don’t think you get anything out of resting guys. I don’t want to set a precedent.

Arians added that the team is playing well enough right now that they really don’t want to disrupt their performance moving forward.

Don’t think you get anything out of resting guys,” Arians said, per Somers. “[W]e’re playing so well right now, we don’t want to change.
