The NFL is now as close as ever. In fact, it’s so close that I would go as far as saying that almost any given team can win or lose on any given day.
So what is it that separates a team that is undefeated, to a team that is struggling to get off the ground?
If you ask me, the best teams are the ones who can win close games. It’s those teams who can stuff the opposing Running Back at the one after the siren (Packers), or those teams that can turn around a 20 point deficit to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat (Lions). It’s quite simply those teams who are ‘clutch’.
The Cardinals are just eight points off heading into Minnesota undefeated. Sure their Offensive Line is shaky, and their Secondary has been unspectacular, but those eight points, and three losses could quite simply be eradicated if the Cardinals could be ‘clutch’.
