Arizona Cardinals unable to finish in embarrassing 20-17 loss to the New England Patriots

It didn’t have to be that hard.

In the end the Cardinals show they’re not a good team, they have really dumb players and a coach that just may not be ready for the big time.

The Cardinals lose on the road to the New England Patriots 20-17 to fall to 6-5 and their playoff chances will take a big hit with that performance.

Unless Kyler Murray is able to run effectively, this offense is not very good.

They showed that today and in their loss to the Seahawks.

The defense played well enough to win, but it continues to shoot itself in the foot with untimely penalties.

Zane Gonzalez is not a clutch kicker, missing his third important field goal of the season as Kliff Kingsbury continues to believe in his players and they continue to show them he should not.

The Cardinals will likely retain that seventh seed in the 2020 playoffs, but they are doing everything they can to cough it up.

Onto the Rams.
