Arizona's season started out hot, with Kyler Murray playing at a high level and the team looking like a strong contender for the top seed in the NFC. However, after a primetime loss to the Packers and injuries to both Murray and star outside receiver DeAndre Hopkins, the wheels slowly started to come off. The Cardinals only won two games after their Week 12 bye, with the defense failing to hold an opponent under 22 points after doing so eight out of eleven times before the week off. It all culminated in a brutal performance against the division rival Rams on Wild Card weekend, and with all eyes on them, the Cardinals no-showed against Los Angeles en route to a 34-11 defeat. In the unforgiving NFC West, Arizona will have some serious questions to answer this offseason, but that's a story for another day. -- Carl Yedor
