Could the improbable now become possible? Yes, it looks my prediction about the Cardinals was wrong as they are headed to the Super Bowl after their 32-35 victory in the NFC Championship..
Philadelphia was off big time until the second half, while Arizona has started off well — especially Larry Fitzgerald — and still have a good size lead heading into the first half. The Eagles put up 13 points in the third quarter, but the Cardinals held on and Donovan McNabb could not finish the potential comeback.
Donovan McNabb threw for 375 yards, three TDs and an interception; however, Kurt Warner’s four TD’s lead the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl in franchise history.
Again, can anyone believe the Cardinals — a team, for the most part of their history out West that has been mediocre — are in the Super Bowl? If the Rays got to the World Series, the Cardinals can win the Super Bowl — right?
Now let’s wait to see what happens in the Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh game.
