It was the Cardinals final season in St. Louis before becoming the Arizona Cardinals. The team finished 7-8 and missed the playoffs in the midst of a players' strike.
By Week 9 things were back to normal when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to town. Led by Neil Lomax the Cardinals were down 25 points in the third quarter when Lomax connected on three touchdown passes. They would also recover a fumble to complete the 31-28 comeback.
