On March 15, 1988, the NFL’s St. Louis Cardinals move to Phoenix and become the Arizona Cardinals.

Despite losing the Cardinals the city of St. Louis would regain a football team seven years later when the Los Angeles Rams would move to St. Louis and become the St. Louis Rams.

The Cardinals franchise has long been known as one of the fledgling franchises in NFL history, as they were without a championship since 1947, and have only been the playoffs six times in the last 66 years.
However the Cardinals franchise has been to the playoffs in two of the past six years (2008-2009), including a Super Bowl appearance in 2008 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
