Despite being in what was the toughest division in the NFL over the last season, the Arizona Cardinals came very close to making the postseason. Arizona was beat out for the final Wild Card spot in the NFC, but head coach Bruce Arians believes that the team is very close to taking the step to the next level.

“[W]e’re so excited about getting back because we know how close we are,” Arians said Thursday, via the York (Pa.) Dispatch.

“We played San Francisco to two games that were winnable and then split with Seattle and split with St. Louis, so we have a chance to win our division and we know we’re a pretty good football team.”

Arizona will have some cap space to play with in the offseason, so they could be looking to make a few moves that will set them over the top and allow them to make a playoff run in 2014.
