Arizona Cardinals vs Houston Texans: A Public Relations Must Win
Ken Whisenhunt helped lift the Cardinals to an 8-8 mark in his rookie head coaching debut, and bettered that by leading the 9-7 Cardinals to their first home playoff game since 1947 in his second season. In some ways, his third year may be the most challenging. We’ve seen how good they can be, yet everyone seems to agree they haven’t done enough to prove that their futile past is in the rear view mirror. They are out to prove that they can be a consistently good team. Sitting at 1-2, they have not done that, therefore their Week Five matchup with the Houston Texans is a public relations must win.
