The Arizona Cardinals sit at 4-6 after their first ten games. The 2012 campaign started out with the Cardinals winning their first four games and being one of the last three teams to be undefeated.
Then the calendar changed from September to October and the Cardinals' fate changed with it. They've dropped six games in a row and sit 2 1/2 games behind the 49ers for the NFC West lead pending the result of their game tonight against Chicago.
Despite the losing skid, Arizona sits just two games out of the final playoff spot in the NFC with six games to play. The Cardinals still have plenty to play for and there are several key players that will have to come up huge down the home stretch if Arizona is going to make the playoffs.
The Cardinals final six games are as follows. They host St. Louis in Week 12 before road games with the Jets and Seahawks. Arizona closes out its home schedule with NFC North foes Detroit then Chicago before finishing off the year at San Francisco.
