Winning mentality: Carson Palmer.

The Arizona Cardinals are searching for their ninth straight victory with Carson Palmer at quarterback as they meet the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC West clash.

Following a 2-0 start to the season, Palmer’s record in his past 17 starts is 15-2 – the longest active streak among quarterbacks in the league. The only thing that has slowed down the 35-year-old in his time in Arizona has been injury with Palmer tearing his ACL in Week 10 last year as the Cardinals faded down the stretch.

Currently, Arizona sit atop the division and can further extend their lead over the 49ers with a win.

Looking to climb back in the NFC West are the Seattle Seahawks, who get one of league’s top safeties in Kam Chancellor back from his contract holdout against the Jay Cutler-less Chicago Bears at home.

Andrew Luck.

Filling in for Cutler will be back-up quarterback Jimmy Clausen, who’s 1-10 as a starter with a dismal passer rating of 60.0.

Seattle return to the friendly confines of CenturyLink Field where they’ve won seven straight contests.

In Tennessee, the Indianapolis Colts search for their first win of the year in a battle of young gunslingers. Andrew Luck has struggled so far with five interceptions to go with three touchdown throws, while Titans’ rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota leads the NFL with a 129.9 passer rating.
