Despite the seven-game losing streak, Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap has remained surprisingly upbeat, telling Arizona Sports 620 on Monday, "I don't think we are losing in embarrassing fashion."
The Cardinals last won in overtime against the Dolphins on Sept. 3, back when they were atop the NFC West at 4-0. Since then, the Cardinals have rattled off seven straight losses. Some were harder to swallow than others, like a 19-16 overtime loss to Buffalo, or a 23-19 loss to Atlanta.
"I don't think you can be embarrassed when you go out there and give everything you have," Heap told Arizona Sports 620.
Heap said he has never been a part of such a losing streak during his career with the Baltimore Ravens, but says that the Cardinals just have to put their heads down and push on through the questions.
"The first thing you have to do is stick together as a team and make sure you believe in one another and not let those things tear you apart... You have to stay together."
The Cardinals, who own one road victory on the year, have three of their final five games away from home. First up in December, they head to New York to take on the Jets.
