Silver linings: Cardinals at Vikings

By Mike Sando

The facts: The Arizona Cardinals fell to 4-3 with a 21-14 road defeat against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7.

The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two. Looking ahead: The Cardinals return home to face the San Francisco 49ers on "Monday Night Football" in Week 8.
