Arizona Cardinals’ Playoff Hopes Cling to Life Support
The Arizona Cardinals have been one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season, but that only does not guarantee the team a playoff spot. The Cardinals currently sit third in the NFC West and one game out of the final wild card position, but the season all comes down to the final two games for Arizona. The Cardinals kept the team’s playoff hopes alive with an overtime win against the Tennessee Titans, but how will Arizona perform with the season on the line?
The Cardinals overcame a career day from Ryan Fitzpatrick and survived in overtime to win 37-34. Carson Palmer did not do as well as his counterpart, but the veteran quarterback had a solid outing. Palmer has developed a good rapport with wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd as he continues to immerse himself in this offense. After struggling early in the season, Palmer and the Cardinals have won six of the last seven games and have remained relevant in the daunting NFC West. The Cardinals are a legitimate threat in the NFC, but can Arizona sneak into the playoffs?
The Cardinals look to secure a playoff berth with wins over two divisional foes. The Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers stand between the Cardinals and the playoffs, but can Arizona manage to run the table? Arizona has only won one divisional game this year and that was against the St. Louis Rams, so the Cardinals have a long road ahead of them.
If the Cardinals get a win at the thunder dome that is Seattle, a win or go home scenario could be in effect for the regular season finale against the 49ers. If Arizona loses at Seattle, the team’s chances of making the playoffs will evaporate. Will the Cardinals pull the upset in Seattle or will the Cardinals playoff drought continue?
