Two games left.

At least that’s all we have to worry about for the 2018 NFL season.

Hopefully, it is the final two games if the Steve Wilks era as well.

The Arizona Cardinals were utterly embarrassed on Sunday in a 40-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, that culminated in Josh Rosen finishing the day on the bench, while Mike Glennon finished the day.

It started off fine, the Cardinals were up 7-0 after getting a stop on defense and then going down the field, with David Johnson and Josh Rosen.

It was quick and disgusting spiral downward after that.

They gave up 215 yards rushing to a team that was averaging only 81 rushing yards a game.

It was a balanced approach from the Falcons offense, while the Falcons defense, who had only forced 11 turnovers coming into the game, completely shutdown the Cardinals offense.

Josh Rosen threw two interceptions and fumbled once, the Cardinals offensive line gave up seven sacks in the game and the team looked completely overwhelmed and outmatched another time this year.

That lead to Mike Glennon's appearance, which resulted in the Cardinals best drive of the day, culminating in a Glennon to Trent Sherfield touchdown, the first of Sherfield's career.

It is becoming more and more difficult to find positives to come out of each game with.

The Cardinals gave up 40 unanswered points to a talented Falcons offense, but it shows the distance between the Cardinals and even the bad teams in the NFL.

The countdown to the end of the season, and likely the end of the Steve Wilks era is upon us.

Only two weeks left.
