Week 6 in the NFL provides a number of important matchups around the league. Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs are the last undefeated team left, and they face the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday.

Peterson, 32, had 27 carries for 81 yards — an average of 3.0 yards per carry — in four games during his first season with the Saints (2-2). His longest run was 11 yards.
Peterson’s addition comes 10 years after the Cardinals passed over him in the 2007 draft to select tackle Levi Brown with the fifth pick. The Minnesota Vikings drafted Peterson at No. 7, and he went on to rush for a franchise-best 11,747 yards.
Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson tweeted a welcome, while Saints safety Rafael Bush and wide receiver Michael Thomas wished Peterson well in Arizona.
Ramirez, who was on the bench to start Game 1, drove in two more runs with a seventh-inning double before Bradley’s homer bounced off Reddick’s glove and into the stands behind the Pesky Pole.
