WEEK 14 -- PLAYOFF UPDATE

To survive playoff elimination through Week 14, the Cardinals need:

  • ARI win + loss by either SEA or CRL or ATL

    OR

  • Losses by CRL + ATL + either DET/GBP

JACK OF A FEW TRADES

- - - - - Special teams, or more specifically, Phil Dawson, stepped up in a large way to end the Cardinals' two-game losing streak, booting through the 57-yard game-winner with one second left against Jacksonville. He also connected on three other field goal, an extra point, and made the touchdown-saving (at the moment) tackle on a long kickoff return.
- - - - - The other story of the game was the play of Blaine Gabbert bolstered by a solid showing by the offensive line against one of the league's best defensive fronts. Certainly there was the tide-turning fumble he relinquished in the fourth quarter, but this was a mistake he was able to overcome on the following drive.
- - - - - Unfortunately, at 5-6, the Cardinals' playoff hopes are nearly extinguished, due in large part to the team being very short on tie-breakers. Seattle has already clinched all tie-breakers against Arizona, as the best we could do is match their head-to-head and divisional marks, but are guaranteed to lose at the common-games step. Although there are other paths, the Cardinals would realistically need to win out and have no more than one other wild card hopeful at 10-6 or better.

NEXT WEEK, LOS ANGELES RAMS: A loss to the Rams would eliminate Arizona from the NFC West race. A win would swing the tie-breaker in favor of the Big Red, and bring the Cardinals back within one game of the all-time series with the Cleveland-Los Angeles-St. Louis-Los Angeles franchise. My prediction, Cards win, 23-21.

"The Cardinals Are Charging" was written for both the St. Louis Baseball and Football Cardinals on June 29, 1960. Although the baseball team stopped using the march several years later, the fight song can still be heard at all home football games for the now Arizona Cardinals. The music and words were composed by songwriters Irving Bibo (1889-1962) and Larry Kent. Originally, the lyrics had "all St. Louis" in place of "Arizona" (Line 7), and "St. Louis" instead of "Arizona" (Line 8). Download from the following versions: Real Audio, and MIDI.
