The Arizona Cardinals got a much-needed win in Week 10, with their backup quarterback under center might I add, that probably saved their season from imploding. Yes, Arizona is still at a disappointing 4-6 on the season, but also only two games out of first place in the NFC West.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury has surely had his ups and downs in his time holding the position, sometimes outperforming expectations and sometimes delivering underwhelming performances. This is proven in his records following the Week 10 win, which brought his outright record as the Cardinals coach to 17-16-1 when the Cardinals are underdogs.

On the flip side, Kingsbury is only 11-14 outright when his team is the favorite. Usually, those two stats should be flipped. This makes Kingsbury the only coach in the Super Bowl era to achieve this.

In a league with so much parity, it's surprising he is the only one to ever accomplish this. They say "Vegas always knows," which seems to be true, unless it's a game being coached by Kingsbury.

The Cardinals head into a crucial Week 11 matchup with the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers. Arizona is an 8-point home underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
