New Orleans Saints

The last time the Cardinals played the Saints was in 2013 in New Orleans.  The Cardinals lost 31-7.  The last time the Saints came to Arizona was back in 2010.  The Cardinals starting quarterback that day was Max Hall.  They defeated the Saints 30-20.

2015 schedule prediction:  Could be a November visit from the Saints.

Chicago Bears

The last time the Cardinals met the Bears was in Glendale in 2012.  The Bears easily beat the Cards 28-13.  This years game is at Soldier Field in Chicago.  The last visit by the Cardinals there was in November 2009, led by quarterback Kurt Warner and the Cards won that contest 41-21.

2015 schedule prediction: Maybe the schedule makers will be nice and put the Cards on the road in September here.

Minnesota Vikings

The last three meetings between the Cardinals and Vikings have taken place in Minnesota, all Vikings victories, with the last being in 2012 21-14.  The last visit by the Vikings to Arizona was in December 2009 on Sunday Night Football.  The game was flexed by NBC and the NFL.  The Cardinals won 30-17.

2015 schedule prediction: A Sunday afternoon visit in October or November.

Detroit Lions

The Cardinals are also very familiar with the Lions.  The Cardinals have hosted the Lions in Glendale each of the last three seasons, winning all of them, including 2014’s 14-6 victory.  Overall the Cardinals have won the past six meetings.  The Cards last visit to Detroit was in 2009.  That was a 31-24 victory.

2015 schedule prediction: Early October in Detroit.  A national television candidate.
