Out of sight, out of mind.

That old chestnut may become the rallying cry for two teams that can right now be rated as spoilers and trying to climb higher -- the Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans.

Both teams are flirting with success -- the Titans are 4-4 and in second place in the AFC South while the Cardinals are 4-4 and in third spot, looking up at the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks in the tough NFC West.

The two teams may not quite be playoff calibre just yet, but they are two squads that nobody wants to play.

In this weird and wacky season where the tag 'On any given Sunday ...' is more pronounced than ever, both the Titans and Cardinals may have something to say about just who makes it into the post-season.

They also could both -- don't laugh -- be playoff bound.

In the AFC, don't sell the Titans short.
