The Arizona Cardinals are one of the older teams when it comes to key players.

They have a desperation to final realize their goal of winning a Super Bowl and the two men behind that run could be on their last leg in the league.

They also have one of the best quotes in the NFL at head coach.

So, when CBS Sports came out with a character comparison of every team in the NFL to a Game of Thrones character, it could only be one person:

Arizona Cardinals: Olenna TyrellOne of the elder characters on the show, Lady Olenna is a good fit for the Cardinals, who have two key stars who could be heading into their final season in Larry Fitzgerald and Carson Palmer. Just like the Cardinals are all-in on 2017, Olenna is in win-now mode after losing her heirs in the explosion orchestrated by Cersei. Perfectly blunt in a quick-witted way, she's the show's closest thing to Bruce Arians.

If you're not a fan of Game of Thrones, Tyrell is slightly off in that she's a former power, but the aging players, desperation and Bruce Arians amazing ability to fill up a quote sheet, it does make sense.
