Follow @VincemarottaPresented By...

Now that the Arizona Cardinals’ 2014 season is over, it’s time to reflect. Over the next ten days or so, we’ll look back at the Cardinals’ 11-win campaign, position by position.

Arizona’s special teams were not always special. The Cardinals ranked dead last in kickoff return average (19.0), but 9th in punt return average (10.7).

Coverage teams were solid, ranking 13th in opponent’s kick return average (26.1) and 15th in opponent’s punt return average (8.9).

The Cardinals scored one special teams touchdown and didn’t allow any.

We won’t break down every position on special teams, but here’s a look at how the prominent players fared.
