Arizona Cardinals: Playoffs appear on horizon
The Arizona Cardinals look to return to the postseason in 2017
While many expect the New England Patriots to return to the Super Bowl and win in 2017, a lot of people outside of New England are ready for a change. The NFC though is wide open with the Arizona Cardinals back in some predictions as getting back to the playoffs.
This doesn’t mean all of that will happen. Predictions are just that. Many are picking the Patriots to play the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl. We are hoping that won’t be the case.
We’d love to see receiver Larry Fitzgerald and quarterback Carson Palmer get their rings. If that happens, that may signal the end of their careers but what a way for them to go out.

As much as it pains to say it, the Arizona Cardinals will eventually run into quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the playoffs. Now, certainly there is a hope that doesn’t happen and Arizona is there at the end.
The way the Packers played the second half of the season there is a feeling they are ready to take care of unfinished business. Of course, the Cardinals have every right to feel that way too.
The Titans offense is loaded with playmakers. Everyone believes the Patriots or the Steelers will be there at the end again. Maybe, but don’t sleep on the Titans or even the Raiders. Both teams have young quarterbacks ready to take the next step.
