Cards Ready to Close Out the Regular Season vs Seattle

The Cardinals close out the regular season with a home game against the Seattle Seahawks. Arizona clinched the NFC West title with a 34-10 home win over the Rams on 12/7 but has dropped consecutive games since (home vs. Minnesota and at New England).

The week 14 win over the Rams gave the franchise its first playoff berth since 1998, a division championship for the first time since ’75 when they were in St. Louis and the NFC East, and assured the team of its first home playoff game since 1947 in Chicago (see “Wild Card Possibilities” below).

A win over Seattle this week would give the Cardinals a 9-7 record, matching their best since moving to Arizona in ’88. The team was also 9-7 in 1998, its last playoff campaign.

A victory would also give the Cardinals a 6-0 NFC West record and the franchise’s first perfect season of divisional play. The only other time the Cards went undefeated in their division was 1968 when they went 5-0-1 in their first season in the Century Division (with the Browns, Giants & Steelers).
