Cardinals Record In October Comes In At 12th Best

Among the 32 teams in the NFL, the Cardinals have posted the 12th-best record during October since 2018, going 14-9. Overall, Arizona ranks well behind New Orleans, which has led the NFL in October with a 15-4 record since 2018.

Arizona wound up sandwiched between No. 11 Kansas City (13-8) and No. 13 Indianapolis (12-8) during the 10th month of the year. Both the L.A. Rams (14-7) and Seattle (13-7) posted better records among NFC West teams. The Cardinals’ October success will be put to the test this year as it plays under a first-year head coach and with its franchise quarterback (Kyler Murray) still recovering from a late-season ACL injury.

The Arizona sportsbook promos available on the team the rest of the year will be longshots, with the Cardinals listed as +8000 to win the NFC West just two games into the season — San Francisco is the favorite at -650.
