Now is the time for Arizona to prove they are championship material. They have been knocking on the door and might have broken it down last year were it not for an injury to their quarterback.

NFL Handicapping Insight
This season they are a favourite in the NFC and I love their chances to hoist the Lombardi trophy in a month’s time. The odds are nice too.
They Have Been Building to this Level
The Cardinals have been getting better and better over the last few seasons under the leadership of Bruce Arians.
It was thought they might take a step back after losing defensive coordinator Todd Bowles but they haven’t.
The defense might not be as stingy as it was a year ago but the improvements on offense have more than made up for it.
We always think of the Cardinals as more of a punchline but now they are legitimately in the conversation.
Great Quarterback Play
I am not saying that Carson Palmer is one of the all time greats but he has probably received more criticism than was warranted over the hear.
Heck, he got the Bengals to the playoffs and who knows what happens if he does not go down to injury that game.
This has been his best year as a pro and his best chance to prove that he is a winner. With the weapons he has around him I am not going to write him off just yet.
Arians is an acknowledged QB whisperer but the defense is still darn good.
James Bettcher is hardly a household name but the Cards were seventh in points allowed this season and in the top eight in all major statistical categories on defense.
They may not have that monster sack guy but this is an aggressive group adept at making big plays, especially in the secondary.
They Are Not Afraid of Seattle
Yes I know they just lost to them at home to close the season but what is just as meaningful is that they beat them on the road earlier in the year.
That final game wound up being meaningless with Carolina winning easily against Tampa.
If they do have to square off again with the Seahawks it will once again be at home and this group will be ready. There is no reason they cannot go through the defending NFC champs on a title run.
Is there a coach who has had a greater impact over the last decade than Arians?
Beginning as a coordinator in Pittsburgh, a short stint leading Colts, and now resurrecting the Cardinals, he keeps proving his offensive brilliance and ability to get the most out of his players.
If you look at the teams in the playoffs the only one you might see as having an edge on the sidelines might be New England. Sorry Riverboat Ron.
