Performance History of Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals have won two NFL championships while they were in Chicago in 1925 and 1947. Their first win was controversial, with the supporters of their opponents – the Pottsville Maroons – claiming that they won the title. Their second win was nearly two decades before the first Super Bowl. But they have failed to win the Super Bowl Championship.
Apart from their pre-Super Bowl wins, they’ve been the NFL Western division champions in 1947 and 1948. Other divisions they’ve won include:
- The NFC East in 1974 and 1975; and
- The NFC West in 2008, 2009, and 2015.
They’ve had ten NFL appearances over the years, winning the 1947 championship. They lost the 1948 championship to the Philadelphia Eagles. In 1974, 1975, and 2014 they didn’t make it past the NFL wild card playoffs. While they didn’t get past the divisional playoffs in 1998, 2009. And in 2015, they couldn’t break into the Superbowl 50 finals, losing to the Carolina Panthers. However, 2008 was almost their year where they made to the Super Bowl XLIII finals, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
