The 1995 Arizona Cardinals season was the franchise's 97th season, 76th season in the National Football League, the 8th in Arizona and the second as the Arizona Cardinal. Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Dave Krieg started in his only season with the team. The Cardinals failed to improve upon their 8-8 record from 1994 and finished 4-12, resulting in the firing of head coach Buddy Ryan and his entire staff.
