Is anyone giving the Arizona Cardinals a chance to beat the Carolina Panthers on Wildcard Weekend? Bruce Arians is.


TEMPE, Ariz. — All things being equal, a team would rather enter the postseason riding a winning streak.

It’s called “peaking at the right time,” and generally leads to confidence that a team could make a deep playoff run.

The Arizona Cardinals, having lost their last two games and four of their last six, seem to be trending in the opposite direction.

Cause for concern?

“I would think you’d say that, but I don’t think there’s any concern because we’re in the playoffs and it don’t matter, We’re all 0-0” coach Bruce Arians said Monday.
