  • The Cardinals began their season by compiling a 73 record by Week 11. However,

    they finished the regular season with a 97 record, which was enough to win the NFC

    wild card game, the Cardinals defeated the Atlanta Falcons. The next week, for the

    Divisional round of the playoffs, the Cardinals traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina,

    where they upset the number 2 seeded Carolina Panthers.
