Cardinals could rank among all-time surprise teams

The Arizona Cardinals have the chance to be one of the NFL’s all-time surprise teams, a champion few expected. Just as significant, it becomes a model for franchises that have struggled on their own to follow one.

Now that the Cardinals have reached the final Sunday of the season and their first┬áSuper Bowl, only five NFL franchises remain that never have advanced to football’s biggest stage.

The five franchises never to play in the Super Bowl: The Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints. If the Cardinals can do it, there’s no reason those other five can’t, either.
