Arizona Cardinals Playoff Details
The Arizona Cardinals have competed in the NFL since its founding in 1921, but you wouldn’t know that judging from their postseason history. The franchise had been mired with historically long droughts and playoff failure. But, the Cardinals’ fortunes changed with the turn of the century.
With rare playoff appearances in the mid-70s, 1982 and 1998, the Cards finally cemented themselves as perennial contenders in their historic, “Shock the Earth” 2008-2009 season.
Under the leadership of offensive guru Ken Whisenhunt at coach and former Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner at Quarterback, as well as Wideouts Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin, the Arizona Cardinals bulldogged their way into the NFC Wild Card. By defeating the Atlanta Falcons, the Cards won their first playoff game since 1947.
Postseason success followed for the Cardinals, culminating in an electric Super Bowl XLIII against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The stakes were high. Whisenhunt entered the championship in only his second year as an NFL Head Coach, though he won a championship as offensive coordinator for the combating Steelers in 2005.
Warner had his fair share of challenges after his Super Bowl runs with the St Louis Rams. But after a series of underwhelming performances, Warner revived his career by leading the Cardinals through a honeymoon season and giving the franchise its first-ever shot at the Lombardi Trophy.
The Steelers came out swinging, including a 100-yard pick-six from Steelers linebacker James Harrison and an ugly 20-7 score at the start of the fourth quarter.
Warner resonated with the Cardinals’ underdog, faded glory. And, with the same thrust that led them to the Super Bowl, Warner and the Cardinals strong-armed their way to a 23-20 lead thanks in to a 64-yard touchdown reception from Larry Fitzgerald with only 35-seconds to go. The Steelers narrowly recovered off a barely-in pass to Santonio Holmes. Final score: Steelers 27, Cardinals 20.
Since their tight Super Bowl loss, the Cardinals have established themselves as a postseason threat, developing rivalries with teams like the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.
