TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Not since the "Roaring 20s" has a Cardinals coach got off to as strong a start as Ken Whisenhunt.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator is 14-11 since coming to the desert. That's the best start since Norm Barry directed the Chicago Cardinals to a 16-7-2 record in the mid-1920s.

The 6-3 start is the Cardinals' best since 1984, four years before the franchise moved to Arizona from St. Louis.

Next up is a trip to Seattle to face the Seahawks. Seattle has dominated the division, including the Cardinals, since the NFL was realigned.

After the trip to Seattle, Arizona enters a rugged stretch that has them at home against the New York Giants, at Philadelphia on Thanksgiving night, then at New England.
