The Arizona Cardinals have been ranked in the top 10 of several major polls and have dominated the sport for the past decade.
However, they are one of the few teams in the NFL to face serious challenges in their second year under new head coach Todd Bowles.
The Cardinals are one team that has been under new coaching and management since the beginning of the 2016 season, and they have faced significant challenges this year.
Here are some of the most notable:A team that had a chance to make a deep run in the playoffs, they’ve had a difficult season.
They were projected as one of teams with the best odds to make the postseason last year, but they have lost nine of their last 10 games, including a 31-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild-card round.
In the playoffs they’ve only managed to advance in the AFC West, where they have a 1-3 record.
The team has also lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round in five of their past six playoff games.
This season has also been one of those times when it seemed like the Cardinals were destined to be a contender.
The Cardinals were one of four teams that could win the NFC West and had the NFC’s third-best record.
However since the start of the year they’ve lost five straight games and lost to four different teams.
In their final five games, the Cardinals are 4-3 and have lost to six different teams, including two in a row by a combined seven points.
The team has been one the most dominant teams in football.
The Arizona offense has averaged nearly 10 points per game in the past two years and has scored at least 200 points in seven of those games.
However that’s the kind of play that has led to some of Bowles’ biggest defensive failures.
In the first four games of the season, the Arizona defense allowed an average of 38.2 points per contest, and while they’ve come out of that funk with an 11-4 record, they’re still allowing a league-low 27.2 per game.
They’ve allowed an incredible 49 points in the fourth quarter of their games.
In those games, Arizona has allowed an absurd 41.7 points per possession.
The two big losses that Bowles has had to his defense are to the Atlanta Falcons and the Chicago Bears, both of which are ranked in a top-10 offense in the league.
The Cardinals have also been forced to take a hit from injuries in their secondary.
The club has lost five starting cornerbacks, including safety Tyrann Mathieu, who has missed the past four games with a knee injury.
The loss of Mathieu has led the team to go 6-6, but that has allowed them to lose starting linebacker A.J. Bouye, who they replaced with free agent signing Josh Mauga, and free agent signee J.T. Thomas, who had just three tackles in nine games before getting hurt.
The defense has struggled in pass protection, allowing a whopping 44 sacks and forcing a league high 27 turnovers.
The Cards have allowed a league worst 7.8 yards per pass attempt, and their total yards per completion has dropped to a league low of 21.4 yards.
The secondary has also struggled against the run, allowing an average rushing touchdown per game of 2.3, the fourth-worst mark in the conference.
The defense is also facing some pressure from the quarterback, who ranks 22nd in the nation in passer rating against the Cardinals, at 97.6.
There’s a lot to like about the Arizona Cardinals defense, but one area that has yet to be addressed is the offense.
The offense has struggled mightily, as the team has scored only 25.9 points per season in the two years Bowles was at the helm.
It’s not a surprise that that number is down to 20.7 in 2017, as they have struggled to find the right balance between the run and the pass, with Bowles relying on the running game less.
That hasn’t helped matters in 2017.
The quarterback situation in Arizona is a big problem.
Arizona has the fifth-worst QB rating in the NFC, at 94.4, and the Cardinals have lost their starting quarterback for the season.
With Bowles having spent a year in the pros and working with a young quarterback, the offense has been the problem for the Cardinals.
The quarterback situation has been an issue for the team throughout the past several seasons, and it will continue to be one of them this season.
While the offensive issues have hurt the Cardinals this year, the defense has been especially bad.
Arizona ranks 27th in the country in yards allowed per game, allowing opponents to score on their opponents 52.5 percent of pass attempts.
The problem has been in the secondary, as Arizona ranks No. 1 in the entire conference in interceptions.
The unit has allowed three interceptions and allowed a total of 10 touchdowns.
They are also ranked in just one of three defensive ratings above average, allowing
