The 1989 Phoenix Cardinals season was the team's 70th year with the National Football League (NFL) and the second season in Phoenix. With five games to go in the season, fourth-year coach Gene Stallings announced he would retire at the end of the season. Instead, general manager Larry Wilson ordered Stallings to leave immediately and named running backs coach Hank Kuhlmann as interim coach for the rest of the season. The Cardinals were 5–5 through ten games but would finish the season on a six-game losing streak, which would knock them out of the playoffs.


Regular season

In week 10, Tim McDonald returned an interception 53 yards for a touchdown to beat the Dallas Cowboys.
