NFL Week 5 upset picks: Why the Cardinals can give the 49ers trouble

Ben Fawkes

A winless season is the Unholy Grail of football that every bad NFL team is trying to avoid. For a long time, we thought only the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers would experience this ignominy. Then both the 2008 Detroit Lions and the 2017 Cleveland Browns managed this anti-accomplishment.

Four weeks into the current season, only one team is still in danger of a winless season: the Arizona Cardinals. The good news for Arizona fans is that this week presents a strong opportunity for the Cardinals to get off the schneid and make sure the year ends with something other than zero in the win column.
