The Cardinals have been able to “officially” clinch the NFC West for 2 weeks now; however, it does not seem that they really want to do that yet. It’s easy….WIN a game. Relying upon San Francisco losing is a pathetic way to win a division title, especially since the 49ers aren’t laying down and playing dead, beating Buffalo in Buffalo Sunday.
Also, relying on playing at home doesn’t work either. Understandably, the Cardinals have a horrid road record and can’t seem to win on the east coast; but that’s no reason to play like they can’t win, for the fact of the matter is they CAN win. Same with the NY Giants. It appeared to be a “Oh no, here’s the defending Super Bowl champs. We can’t beat them, so we won’t play like we can.” On any given Sunday, any team can win (except Detroit, lol); however, it all boils down to attitude.
The Jets beat the unbeaten Titans. The very inconsistent-with-no-defense Broncos beat the Jets. Come on Cardinals. You are going to the playoffs for the first time in a decade. PLAY like a winning team.
