After an impressive 13-3 regular season record and the top spot in the NFC West division, the Arizona Cardinals imploded in the playoffs. This year, this talented team will look to go further in the post season and bring a Super Bowl victory to their loyal fans. The Cardinals’ defense is stacked with elite talent with defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, cornerback Patrick Peterson and defensive end Calais Campbell, among others. They added depth this offseason by drafting four defensive players in the 2016 NFL Draft. Arizona’s first round selection was lineman Robert Nkemdiche from Ole Miss along with two new picks in the secondary- corners Brandon Williams and Harlan Miller. Their fourth round pick was safety Marqui Christian from Midwestern State. With this added depth and the return of their key players, this Cardinals defense should be menacing for opposing offenses all season long. Quarterback Carson Palmer will look to bounce back from his terrible playoff performance from 2015 and has the arsenal of weapons to do so. Running back David Johnson has a year of NFL play under his belt and should have a solid season in the backfield. Veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald seems to have turned back time and has the athleticism of Michael Floyd and John Brown alongside him to catch the rock. Arizona signed Jermaine Gresham to the squad during free agency and he’ll be joined by Darren Fells at the tight end position.
Although the NFC West is a difficult division, look for the Cardinals to be in contention again in 2016. They have been knocking on the door of being a legitimate contender for a few years now and fans and Arizona Cardinals ticket holders are certainly hoping that this is their year.
