2015 was a record-setting season for Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals did not want to be enjoying their offseason this week.

No,if they had their way, this week would be all about preparing for the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. Unfortunately for them, they fell to the Carolina Panthers 49-15 in the NFC Championship Game, ending their season one game short of their ultimate goal.

But while the team did not reach its second Super Bowl, the 2015 season will still go down as one of the best in franchise history in large part because of the numerous records that were set.

So, with that, let’s take a look at them.
