Arizona Cardinals: 10 reasons why 2017 not lost yet
Five division games remain
Of the Cardinals 11 remaining games, they still have five of them within the NFC West. That is huge, especially if they have eyes on still winning the division.
The Cardinals are already 1-0 in the division after a 18-15 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in week four. You may say it was only the 49ers but they all count the same at the end.
Clearly the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks will be tougher opponents. The Seahawks beat the Rams 16-10 on Sunday. They are now each 3-2. The Cardinals are just one game back at 2-3.
There is certainly a lot to be optimistic about when it comes to the division. A wild-card berth could be tough, so these divisional games will be the make or break for the Cardinals in 2017.
There is still a great chance that week 17 in Seattle could mean something. The Rams might have something to say about that before then. As of right now though, it is still a possibility.
