TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- For the third time in his 11 NFL seasons, Carson Palmer is about to make his debut with a new team.

The former No. 1 draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals has racked up some impressive statistics in his decade of pro football, but the losses have outnumbered the wins.

Now, at 33, he has another new beginning as quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals. Expectations outside the organization aren't high, given the fact that the team was 5-11 a year ago and plays in a division that includes NFL powerhouses San Francisco and Seattle.

But Palmer and his 60-year-old coach Bruce Arians are conceding nothing.

At their age, they are aiming to win now, skeptics be darned.

Arians calls it the "last hurrah" for both of them.
