When it comes to the future of the NFL, the next Super Bowl could be in Arizona — and the same thing goes for Arizona’s Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals may be in the middle of the playoffs but their current record looks a lot different than it did a year ago.
The team has lost nine of 11 games and the last time they were within striking distance of the postseason was in Week 12.
Arizona’s offense, which was a disaster last season, was so bad that quarterback Carson Palmer and running back David Johnson were suspended.
The defense was a mess last season and hasn’t looked very good, either.
Now they’re coming off a bye week and facing the Arizona Cardinals, a team that’s been playing well.
They have a chance to get better.
That’s what the Cardinals need, according to coach Bruce Arians.
“It’s always a question of the next game,” Arians said.
But at the same time, we also have a couple of guys that are not capable of doing that.” “
We have a lot of guys who are capable of being able to step in and make plays.
But at the same time, we also have a couple of guys that are not capable of doing that.”
If Palmer and Johnson are unable to contribute to the Cardinals’ chances of making the playoffs, it would make a huge difference to the team’s fortunes.
The Cardinals are currently 3-5 and have lost seven of their past nine games.
They also have the league’s third-worst passer rating (101.8) and have allowed an average of 21.4 points per game.
They’ve also been outscored by an average margin of more than 7 points per possession this season.
This is the type of situation the Cardinals have faced the past two seasons.
In 2012, they finished 10-6, lost to the San Francisco 49ers and finished with a 3-13 record, and lost their last three home games by a combined score of 20-17.
The year before that, they lost their final seven games of the regular season and lost to Tampa Bay by a score of 34-21.
It was the worst season of their Hall of Fame career.
In 2015, they fell just short of their first Super Bowl berth and lost at home to the Atlanta Falcons.
The first time the Cardinals had a losing record in a Super Bowl since 2011 was in 2007, when they lost to Denver.
That season was a complete disaster, as the Cardinals lost in the NFC Championship Game in overtime and lost quarterback Matt Leinart to a torn ACL.
That was also the year Leinarts first-year replacement, David Johnson, injured his knee, missing the entire season.
It’s possible that the Cardinals could look at this as another opportunity to get back on track and make a run at the playoffs.
“Our mindset is that we’re playing for a championship right now,” Ariados said.
“(It)’s a team game.
You want to win, you want to make a playoff push.
You don’t want to lose.
But if you’re going to win championships, you’ve got to win. “
A lot of people say it’s all about winning.
