Each team plays the NFC East and the AFC Central and the NFC West (twice).
The difference? The Cardinals get to play Carolina and Minnesota, while the Rams get to play New Orleans and Green Bay.
That is a HUGE difference … and just might be the difference between the Cardinals winning and losing the division this year. As far as I’m concerned, those two games are must wins, if we want to see the Cardinals representing the NFC West in the playoffs this year.
The scheduling gods have been kind to the Cardinals, so let’s see if they can capitalize.
