Arizona QB Carson Palmer turned in a gutsy performance Sunday in what turned out to be the Cardinals' final game of the season.Fantasy Spin:He threw for 407 yards on 28-of-49 passing. It was Palmer's second 400-yard game of the season. Arizona finished the year at 10-6, one game out of the final wild card spot. Ironically, Green Bay (8-7-1) and the winner of tonight's Dallas/Philadelphia game will both be going to the postseason despite having a worse record than the Cardinals.

No playoffs, but Cardinals have standard on which to build

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- There was no denying the gut feeling overtaking Larry Fitzgerald and his Cardinals teammates after Sunday's 23-20 loss to the 49ers at University of Phoenix Stadium. "It doesn't feel good," Fitzgerald said. "But it doesn't diminish what we were able to accomplish as a unit, as a team. Coach (Bruce) Arians hit it on the head. He said,...

Michael Floyd will soar with the Arizona Cardinals next season

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd shined in Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at University of Phoenix Stadium. The 24-year-old Floyd, who flourished in Bruce Arians’ vertical passing offense, caught six passes for 91 yards.

Cardinals' 10-6 season builds confidence, momentum

A 10-6 record wasn't good enough to get the Arizona Cardinals into the playoffs. It did, however, generate a locker room bursting with confidence after one season under coach Bruce Arians. The Cardinals, a woeful 5-11 a year ago, won seven of their last nine, impressive but not quite enough in the tough NFC West. Arizona went 2-4 against teams in its division, with the biggest...

2014 NFL Schedule: NFC West Arizona Cardinals

Palmer disappointed but 'excited' for future with Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Carson Palmer made history Sunday, becoming the first NFL quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards in a season for three different teams. It took him three years to get there with Cincinnati and two with Oakland, but he needed only one in Arizona. Imagine what it would have been had the offensive group did not have to assimilate Bruce Arians' system on the fly...

Johnson active for Cardinals, Skuta plays for SF

Arizona safety Rashad Johnson and San Francisco outside linebacker Dan Skuta were active for Sunday's game between the Cardinals and 49ers. Johnson was starting in place of injured Tyrann Mathieu, but missed last week's win at Seattle with an ankle injury. Skuta didn't practice all last week with a foot injury. Both had been listed as questionable. All other players...

Todd Bowles them over!

Arizona Cardinals' defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.Maybe it’s me, but I’m suddenly thinking the Arizona Cardinals are a lot more ‘legit’ than I ever thought this season. While Arizona ranks just 23rd in total offense, they are also ranked a more impressive 16th in scoring. More importantly, the Cardinals are very, very good defensively for outstanding coordinator Todd...

The 49ers Will Beat the Cardinals: A Game Preview

Sean McMahonBefore we address tomorrow’s game, I would like to shed light on a topic that has bothered me endlessly of late. I am nothing but a small time blogger trying to find his way into the industry, and many of you don’t heed what I write. Being said, I am appalled at the lack of coverage the NFC West accounts for in big media. I put the NFL Network on my own personal...

Cardinals come up just short in season-ending loss to 49ers

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Phil Dawson kicked a 40-yard field goal as the game ended to give San Francisco a 23-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, moving the 49ers into the NFC's No. 5 playoff seed.
