Forecast for a Cardinals Championship?

The Arizona Cardinals defeated the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday to improve their record to 10-3. The 17-14 victory also gave the team seven home victories on the season. That is the most in the franchise’s 95-year history since the, Cardinals, then located in Chicago, won 11 of 13 in 1925. That year the Cardinals finished the season with an 11-2-1 record and were crowned as NFL champions.
