Late-season failures put pressure on Kingsbury, Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury was an offensive genius a few short weeks ago. Now there's a sizable chunk of Arizona's fan base that wouldn't mind if he was out of a job.

Barring something very unexpected, that's not going to happen. But there's little doubt the 41-year-old Kingsbury will enter his third season under pressure after a late-season collapse extended the franchise's playoff drought to five years.

Arizona finished with an 8-8 record, which was a three-win improvement over the previous season. The problem is the Cardinals raised expectations with a 6-3 start and then fell apart down the stretch. The last two weeks were downright painful: Arizona lost two games when playing against backup quarterbacks and scored a combined 19 points.
