Arizona Cardinals avoid NFL’s biggest turkeys, bitter rivals do not

The NFL is a marketing machine, a network of television, online, print and other media platforms that push the league’s message at every turn. It’s a mechanism that churns out stars and makes average Joes household names. Most of the time, that’s a good thing; the league is promoting the game by highlighting the people who make it click. But it’s not always appropriate. Sometimes...

Arizona’s House of Cards

In 2013, the Arizona Cardinals went into Seattle and defeated the eventual Super Bowl champions at home—the only team to do so that season. It was a sign of the Cardinals’ ascension toward playoff contention, which they ultimately fell just short of the final week of the season. On this past Sunday, the Cardinals returned to CenturyLink Field and lost to a struggling Seahawks...
