GLENDALE, Ariz. — The story has not come to a close, at least not yet.

Following the Arizona Cardinals’ 35-6 defeat to the Seattle Seahawks, one that removed them from their perch atop the NFC West and likely cost them a first-round bye as well as homefield advantage in the postseason, the message was clear.

“It’s not the end of the world for us,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “Obviously we’d like to have the easy way, but there’s a lot of teams that have gone on the road and done what we want to do.

“Our goal hasn’t changed.”

As bad as things seem now, after Arizona was blown out at home and scored just six points while surrendering nearly 600 yards of offense to the Seahawks, there is a bright side.

Arizona could still win the NFC West, if the Seahawks lose to the St. Louis Rams next week and the Cardinals beat the 49ers in San Francisco. And, if that does not happen, their spot in the playoffs is secure and there will be football past Week 17.

“We’re happy to be in the playoffs,” Arians said. “And like I said, I would have loved to have had them all here, but we’re not going to have that — maybe. We’ll see.”
