Defensive tackle Kenny King needs surgery on his right wrist and probably will miss the season, Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green said yesterday. A fifth-round draft pick last season, King had been battling rookie Darnell Dockett for the starting job on the right side of the defense. But he injured wrist tendons that already had been surgically repaired once this year. Arizona claimed safety Ifeanyi Ohalete off waivers from the Washington Redskins. Ohalete was a starter for the Redskins the last two seasons.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Four times this season the Arizona Cardinals had found a way to lose a close game at the end. A play here, a play there, and the outcomes would have been different. Then came Sunday's game against St. Louis, where those failures, in the words of coach Ken Whisenhunt, "pale in comparison" to what the Cardinals had to pull off to escape with a 19-13 overtime victory. Special teams were truly special at the end. First, Calais Campbell blocked what would have been the game-winning field goal at the end of regulation.

THE STAR of the Alabama-Notre Dame national title game wasn't wearing a helmet or shoulder pads. She was sitting in the stands cheering for her boyfriend, AJ McCarron, who quarterbacked the Crimson Tide to a 42-14 win over the Irish. When ESPN showed Katherine Webb - aka Miss Alabama USA 2012 - sitting next to McCarron's mom during the first quarter it created a tsunami-like wave of reaction. According to reports, the number of Webb's Twitter followers jumped from about 2,200 to over 160,000.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Amid a weekend of hoopla surrounding the Cardinals came at least one nugget of bad news. Tight end Stephen Spach suffered a torn ACL in his right knee against Carolina on Saturday, ending his season. Spach was signed by the Cardinals on Oct. 28. He had two receptions for 15 yards during the regular season, both against St. Louis in Week 14, but he caught three passes for 34 yards, including the game-clinching 23-yarder on third down against Atlanta in the first round of the playoffs, and became a key component of the Cardinals' improved rushing attack.

Peruse the Cardinals' roster and you will pause on a handful of household names. Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Edgerrin James. It's enough to make Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett feel insecure. "That's Dockett with two T's," he said to a reporter taking notes Monday at the Cardinals practice facility in Tempe. "The only guys you all know in here are on the other side of the ball. " Offense certainly defined the Cardinals' regular season. The team finished second in the NFL in passing yards per game (292.

THE ARIZONA Cardinals have gone from chumps to champs in the NFC West. Kurt Warner rebounded from last week's poor performance against the Eagles, the defense scored twice and the host Cardinals clinched their first division title in 33 years yesterday by beating woeful St. Louis, 34-10. The Cardinals, long the league's doormat franchise with just one winning season in the last 24 years, earned their first playoff berth since 1998 and first divisional title since they won the NFC East in 1975.

Cardinals defensive end Bryan Robinson took a quick glance at the horde of media gathered around his locker yesterday and donned a Magic Johnson-like grin. "It's a little surreal that we're talking about the Arizona Cardinals right now," he said. "You guys look like you're sleepwalking. You don't even know what to do. 'What kind of questions do I ask?' " Surreal. Shocking. No adjective is too extreme to describe this season's Cardinals, who have somehow broken what most Phoenicians believed to be an unbreakable mold.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Patrick Peterson insists he first began returning punts as a 7-year-old. "I used to field punts and take them to the house in Pop Warner as well," he said with that big, bright grin that's so familiar to everyone who has been around him since he joined the Arizona Cardinals. Peterson probably carried himself with the same swagger, too, not really arrogance but a supreme belief in his ability. "He walks around," teammate Darnell Dockett joked, "like it's his world and we're all just livin' in it. " It's the self-confidence that led the Arizona rookie to watch the ball float into his arms at his 1-yard line, then break tackles and spin away from the last would-be defender in a 99-yard return that gave the Cardinals an overtime victory over St. Louis last Sunday.

It takes a few years to truly evaluate a draft, but that's no fun. Here's an initial look at the NFL draft and how teams fared. The big winners Detroit. First-round pick Roy Williams of Texas will team with Charles Rogers and Tai Streets for strong receiving corps. Virginia Tech running back Kevin Jones of Cardinal O'Hara should start, and second-round pick Teddy Lehman of Oklahoma should challenge to start at linebacker. New England. The Pats didn't need to draft a running back after adding Corey Dillon from Cincinnati last week, so New England fortified its defensive line with Miami's Vince Wilfork and LSU's Marquise Hill.

WITH THE exception of the Chiefs back in Week 3, the Eagles really haven't gone up against a top-shelf defense this season. That isn't meant to disparage the impressive performances of LeSean McCoy, who leads the league in rushing, or Nick Foles, who leads the league in passing, or DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper, who have combined for 14 touchdown catches and are averaging a collective 17.7 yards per catch. It's just a fact. The Chiefs are the only team they've faced that currently is ranked higher than 14th in the league in points allowed (they're tied for second)

As might be expected, Monday's BCS championship game featured a breakout star drawing attention from the NFL. That would be Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's model girlfriend, Katherine Webb, of course. You know that announcer Brent Musburger had a hubba-hubba, homina-homina freakout over the comely Miss W and ESPN's cameras gave the 23-year-old oodles of face-time during the broadcast, nabbing her a gazillion new Twitter followers (oh, and some sports-page ink). Among those tweeting was Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett, who sent Webb his phone number, inviting her to join him after the game (at a Miami strip club - classy)
