The Cardinals were virtually unstoppable for the majority of last season, leaping out to an astonishing 9-1 record, but QB Carson Palmer's injury was crippling for the team and they limped through the remainder of the season with a 2-4 record, before a pitiful exit to the Carolina Panthers in the playoffs. Key defensive trio Darnell Dockett, Dan Williams and Antonio Cromartie have all departed, along with defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles, leaving their defence in turmoil, while it remains to be seen how much Palmer has left in the tank after cruel ligament injuries have blighted his long career. 2015 Record: 7-9 (3rd in NFC West)
