The Super Bowl odds for the Arizona Cardinals took another blow Christmas night.
The Cardinals fell to 10-5 on the year with a 22-16 loss to Indianapolis. It was Arizona’s third straight defeat — Colts, Detroit (30-12), and the L.A. Rams (30-23) — after Arizona's 7-0 start.
It won’t get any easier for Kliff Kingsbury’s group, as the Cardinals travel to take on the No. 2 team in the NFC — the 11-4 Dallas Cowboys — at 2:25 p.m. Arizona time Sunday on FOX.
The team’s recent losses have given Arizona sports betting apps reason to be wary.
Cardinals Super Bowl Chances Sliding Away

Odds of a Bounce Back on Sunday?

How the Cardinals Playoff Picture Looks
The Cardinals, despite their recent losing streak, have locked up a playoff berth for the first time since 2015.
As of now, Arizona is the fifth seed in the seven-team NFC playoffs, meaning they’d face fourth-seeded Tampa Bay in the Wild Card round.
Kingsbury’s team has slipped a game behind the 11-4 Rams in the race for the NFC West title.
The Rams close out the regular season with a road game against 8-6 Baltimore on Sunday, before hosting 8-7 San Francisco on Jan. 9.
After facing the Cowboys this week, Arizona closes out the season at home against 5-10 Seattle on Jan. 9.
Clinching the division title would guarantee a home game for Arizona in the Wild Card round.
