Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has underlined the importance of every game between now and the end of the campaign.
The Cardinals have put themselves into playoff contention over recent weeks, and currently sit above the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West with a 7-4 record.
If they are to make the post-season, Peterson has said that the team must win every game they play from this point onwards.
He told the club's website: "We're just in the hunt right now. Every game from now is a playoff game. We've just got to win every ball game.
"We need to have everybody communicating well and making sure people are on the same page. I think we're clicking at the right time. We could be remembered for the games we win in November and December."
The Cardinals have not featured in the post-season since winning their division in 2009, and they take on the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday.
