Arizona Cardinals feel their defense can still improve


The Arizona Cardinals are one of the biggest surprises in the NFL this season and they have a chance to reach the postseason with a win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon and some additional help.

While the Cardinals are flying under the radar, the team is confident that they could be one of the most dangerous teams in the playoff field because of their ever improving defense

“It’s up there,” linebacker Karlos Dansby said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. “It’s up there. We still got a lot of growing to do. We still left a lot of plays out on the field. We gave them a little too much than we wanted to give them, but they’re a great offense. You can only shut them down for so long.”

If Arizona can get the help that they need to reach the postseason, they could prove to be one of the true Cinderella stories in the NFL this season.

The Cardinals have continuously slid under the radar and now they are knocking on the door to the playoffs and they look like a team that no one will want to face.
