Even when the Cardinals lose, they win.
Despite losing three straight drops and dropping four of the team’s last six contests, the Arizona Cardinals have clinched a playoff berth thanks to losses from the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings this weekend.
It is the Bird Gang’s first postseason appearance since 2015.
Just a month ago, the Cardinals were in the driver seat to get a top-two seed and win the NFC West, but a rough December means the team is now second place in the division with the Rams holding a one game advantage. The Cardinals wrap up the season with the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks.
