Week 4 NFL Preview

Three teams – Arizona, Cincinnati and Philadelphia – remain undefeated as the NFL enters Week 4.

“For us to go undefeated in September is a huge step forward,” says Cardinals head coach BRUCE ARIANS, whose team enters its Week 4 bye in first place in the NFC West. “I love the resiliency of our football team and the focus they bring every single day to work.”

The chances of making the playoffs after a 3-0 start are good but far from certain. Since 1990, when the current playoff format was adopted, 91 of the 121 teams (75.2 percent) to start 3-0 have qualified for the postseason.

The Cardinals are one of nine teams with a 2-1 record or better that did not make the playoffs last year – Arizona (3-0), Atlanta (2-1), Baltimore (2-1), Buffalo (2-1), Chicago (2-1), Dallas (2-1), Detroit (2-1), Houston (2-1) and Pittsburgh (2-1). And that’s the unpredictability of the NFL. Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four clubs made the playoffs each season that were not in the postseason the previous year.

Throughout his life, the late safety granted few interviews and did not allow many outside of his inner circle to see his true self. As a result, there were several misconceptions that many people held about the young man.
