Cards Remain NFL’s Only Undefeated Team Despite Missing Head Coach Due To COVID

Videos by OutKick

Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury missed Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns after testing positive for COVID-19, but the Cardinals went on to beat the Browns 37-14 in Cleveland.

Not only was Kingsbury absent, but a slew of positive COVID-19 cases left the Cardinals without a few other assistant coaches and veteran defensive linemen Corey Peters and Chandler Jones.

NFL.com’s Jeffri Chadiha reports there were several reasons why the Cardinals could’ve suffered their first loss of the season this past weekend, but instead, they revealed why they’re now 6-0 and the only undefeated remaining in the NFL.

“It is just the resiliency of this team,” linebacker Jordan Hicks said, per NFL.com. “We come out here every single day, every week, and we don’t worry about what’s going on around us. We focus on ourselves. Executing the game plan, and putting ourselves in positions to execute the details of the game plan the coaches are giving us. We don’t waver. When you see this team and when you see the leadership of this team, I think that’s the mark that’s been imprinted at this point.”
