There is no guarantee that Arizona’s Week 1 win over Seattle will set the stage for a successful campaign.
After all, it is only one game.
Still, the Cardinals showed the same fight that helped carry them through 2011, and the same knack for coming up with a play when they absolutely needed one. They got just enough plays, which helped them earn a big win to start the season.
“I don’t think that you can ever underestimate how important winning a division game is,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf. “When you’re talking about wanting to get into the playoffs and have a home playoff game, winning the division has got to be your first goal.”
