Arians talks up Jones' impact on Cardinals 'D'

PHOENIX (AP) - Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says his defense's performance against Seattle the best he's seen since he took over as Cardinals coach in 2013.

A big reason for Arizona's improved play is the addition of Chandler Jones, who had a strip sack of Russell Wilson. He draws so much attention that young Markus Golden has had chances to make big plays, too. Golden leads the team with six sacks; Jones has five.

"He can do some things that we weren't able to do in the past," Peterson said of Jones. "(We can) play a little bit more coverage and let him and Markus get after the quarterback, which they have been doing such a phenomenal job for us throughout the season."
