Cardinals getting respect in predictions

Four of ESPN.com's 10 regular-season forecasters are picking Arizona to beat the Saints in the divisional round.

Those four posted a 9-7 record on predictions in the wild-card round. The other six, including one computer and a SportsNation fan poll, combined to go 6-18 in the wild-card round.

But all 10 of them had the Packers beating the Cardinals last week.

Three of the four Sunday Countdown participants are taking New Orleans this week. Mike Ditka is the exception. He's taking Arizona.
