The Arizona Cardinals, or as fans call them the ‘Big Red’, were among the first few teams to join the American Professional Football League in 1920. The APFL was a forerunner of the NFL. They managed to win their first NFL championship five years after joining the league, by league standings. They held the league’s best record in 1925, out of the twenty teams that used to play.
Their second NFL championships came in 1945, with the help of a brilliant performance of running back Charley Trippi, who was signed from the University of Georgia. Trippi was signed for, what was then, an outrageous sum of $100,000. He delivered and gave the Cardinals their only NFL championship via a title game. The Cardinals won a NFC title in 2009 to go along with their six division titles. They have won two division titles in each of the divisions they have played in; the NFL West, NFC East and the current NFC West.
