Week 16: at Seattle Seahawks

Week 17: vs. San Francisco 49ers

The Cardinals finished their regular season at home against the San Francisco 49ers in hopes of making the playoffs with not only a win over the 49ers, but also a long shot win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans. After being behind 17-7 at halftime, the Cardinals were ultimately shut down by their division rivals and put in 3rd place, barely missing out as they needed to beat the 49ers to win the NFC's last playoff spot. However, even if they had won, their spot depended on the outcome of the game between the New Orleans Saints and the Buccaneers. They would finish their season 10-6, becoming the league's only team with a winning record to not make the playoffs.

With the loss, the Cardinals finished the season by 10-6.
