The 1987 season for the St. Louis Cardinals was a struggle, as the team finished with a record of seven wins and eight losses, and missed the playoffs. This was the Cardinals' final season in St. Louis, as the team moved to Tempe, Arizona in March 1988. This move left St. Louis without an NFL franchise until the Los Angeles Rams moved there in 1995.
