Carson Palmer dismissed the notion that the Arizona Cardinals might overlook the winless Detroit Lions on Sunday.
"We're not taking this game for granted whatsoever. This is a good football team," said Palmer, using Detroit's latest defeat as an example. "This is a team that was a foot and a half away from beating Seattle at home."
There's also the matter of the Cardinals attempting to rebound from their first loss, a 24-22 setback against the St. Louis Rams in which they dominated play for much of the game.
"You never want to lose, but it's a challenge coming back," Palmer said. "It's a tough environment and we're going to see what we're made of."
Since Bruce Arians was named coach, Arizona has lost back-to-back games only once with Palmer in the lineup - both coming in a five-day span against division rivals San Francisco and Seattle in October 2013.
