Parity in the NFL can be a wonderful thing, and for these seven teams, it's what is keeping them in the playoff hunt.

The Arizona Cardinals are the best example of this: teams that are fatally flawed at one aspect of the game but still fighting for a playoff spot. Every season, we see at least five or six of these teams competing for the playoffs, yet you look at their play and wonder why?

Usually, they pull off upsets against teams they have no business beating. Sometimes, they manage to do one thing so well that it overshadows their flaw until it counts the most.
