Shocker at Seattle, Cards playoff chances still alive

Sundays 17-10 victory for the Arizona Cardinals at Seattle was the biggest road win by the franchise since the 2009 playoff victory at Carolina during the Super Bowl run. The Seahawks had won 14 straight home games. Quite an impressive showing by the Cardinals…

It’s a pretty simple equation for the Cardinals to make the postseason. Win next Sundays regular season finale at home against the 49ers and get some assistance.
The help could come in the Monday Night matchup between Atlanta and San Francisco. If the Falcons are able to beat the 49ers then the Cardinals-49ers matchup would essentially be a playoff game with the winner making it into the postseason. There are other scenarios but none of them matter if the Cardinals don’t beat the 49ers…

I am getting a lot of notes about how Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians should get the Coach of the Year vote in the NFL. While I am certain that he deserves a ton of consideration, you can’t leave out the job that Bill Belichick has done at New England through all of the adversity. Ron Rivera was a dead man walking when the Cardinals ripped through Carolina earlier in the season and now the Panthers are a playoff team. I am not saying that Arians doesn’t deserve consideration, but it’s no slam dunk that he is the guy who will win the award…
