(Newser) – Kurt Warner has a clock in his head, and he'll need to pay attention to its ticking in order to best the Pittsburgh defense, writes Peter King in Sports Illustrated. King feels that the Cardinals' chances are all in Warner's hands and head: If he can avoid turnovers, he could clinch it. King has other thoughts, as well:

  • If Willie Parker can find openings, he could break the game open for the Steelers.
  • Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald had better be ready to take some hard hits.
  • Fitzgerald's father, a writer, has been covering his son. Now could everyone else stop writing about it?
