The Cardinals Have 1 Last Chance To Salvage The Season

The Arizona Cardinals have not put themselves in a good position to make the playoffs.

Through 12 games the Cardinals have a record of 4-8.

Even though the playoffs are very unlikely, they still have hope if they can win out.

But, that starts with them playing one of their best games of the season on Monday night.

Arizona hosts the New England Patriots in a battle of two teams on the outside looking in at the playoff picture.

The Cardinals’ season is in the balance on Monday night and all the pressure is on quarterback Kyler Murray.

Murray is one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL but has not played up to that standard this season.

The 25-year-old quarterback has thrown 14 touchdowns this season in 10 games.

Along with a career-low 6.1 yards per attempt this season.

Murray needs to be more aggressive in throwing the ball downfield over the rest of the season.

He is an accurate passer with a strong arm and good weapons to throw to.

There is no reason Murray should not be having a better season.


Coaching Woes

If the Cardinals are unable to pull off this miraculous comeback to get into the playoffs, head coach Kliff Kingsbury may be done.

Despite leading the Cardinals to the playoff last year, his team has struggled to recapture that magic.

Plus, Murray and Kingsbury have had plenty of disagreements throughout the season.

The Cardinals need to get on the same page if they hope to make a late-season run.

Arizona has already committed to Murray for the foreseeable future (under contract through 2028).

Now they hope Murray starts playing up to his lofty contract.
