After falling to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, which teams left on their schedule could defeat the Arizona Cardinals?

For a second, it looked like Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was going to orchestrate a 99-yard game-winning drive. Already considered one of the game’s best quarterbacks, Murray nearly added another chapter to his legacy in Arizona. Had A.J. Green only turned his head in time, the Cardinals might be 8-0 right now.

Instead, they’re 7-1, and no longer atop the NFC. Okay, so the likelihood of finishing a season 17-0 is slim to none and Slim just left Glendale. The loss was coming. But when you hang with a guy like Aaron Rodgers, you know you’re a good football team. The Cardinals did that, and they nearly ended the night in a thrilling comeback fashion.

Odds are, the Cardinals will not finish 16-1, though that would be great. We’re halfway through the season and there are a lot of candidates who can hand the Cardinals their next loss. Keep reading to find out who.
