New Orleans Saints at Arizona Cardinals First Half Thread

Talk about the game as the Arizona Cardinals cling to their playoff lives.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

What was supposed to be a matchup of two contenders vying for a high seed in the NFC playoffs has turned into a game where the loser goes home for sure for the rest of the season.

The Arizona Cardinals take on the New Orleans Saints, for their last home game of the 2016 season.

The disappointment of the season is obvious, but a strong finish in 2016 could possibly sneak this Cardinals team into the playoffs, or set them up for 2017, ending 2016 on a good note and proving that this team's season really did turn on just four or five special teams plays.
