More details later but here is how the Cardinals Fared in the 70
1970-After dropping the first game, the St Louis Cardinals won seven in a row. This included three consecutive shut outs and two wins over the Dallas Cowboys. After that the Cardinals played to a 6 to 6 tie with the cross state rival, the Kansas City Chiefs. They defeated the Eagles easily for an 8-2-1 record. Then came three consecutive losses for an 8-5-1. This was above average but not good enough for a Playoff spot.
1974-Won seven in a row then staggered to a 3-4 finish. Cardinals lost on the road to the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the playoffs.
1976-Things looked promising after a 7-4 start. Then St. Louis finished by losing the final tree games. Tampa Bay beat the Cardinals on the last Sunday for second victory in their young history.
