In case you missed it, the Arizona Cardinals were pretty good last year. Stuck in the middle of NFL purgatory known as the NFC West, these Cardinals - yes THE CARDINALS - won 10 games last sesaon.

And missed the playoffs. Hopefully this year is better and Santa has a playoff berth waiting for them at the end of the year. But if you have looked at the schedule the NFL gods have given this team, they almost act like they want this franchise to fail.

Not so fast my friends. Look for this team to have tough road at the start and then come out roaring at the end. The Arizona Cardinals do not make the playoffs, but they make it exciting.
