Arizona Cardinals 2015 Schedule To Be Released Tuesday

2 of 2

December 28, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd (15) runs with the football against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver (29) during the fourth quarter at Levi

Sunday November 1st – @Cleveland Browns

November rolls around and eventually the cold cities will come into play.  Off to Cleveland for their second AFC North matchup of the season.

Thursday November 5th – St. Louis Rams (Thursday Night Football)

Everyone gets on Thursday Night Football at some point against a division foe.  Last year the two teams met in a field goal battle on Thursday night in St. Louis.  This year the NFL Network will broadcast this one from Glendale.

Sunday November 15th – New Orleans Saints

A lot of changes for the Saints.  This will be their first visit to Arizona since 2010.

Sunday November 22nd – @Detroit Lions

This is one of those games I thought might make it onto a national television telecast.  I just don’t think the NFL and the networks will believe in both the Cardinals and Lions at the same time.  I still think it will be a great game.

Monday November 30th – @Pittsburgh Steelers (Monday Night Football)

This to me is the more intriguing matchup for network and league executives.  The Cardinals get their fourth national game of the year.  My original prediction was four or five.  They got three in the regular season last year and they were better in 2014.  So four it is.

Sunday December 6th – Minnesota Vikings

Which side will Adrian Peterson be on?  Will he even be a participant in this game?  If Peterson is on either side in this one there will be a lot of talk about it leading up to the game.  Also the first chance for Cardinals fans to see Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater up close.

Sunday December 13th – @Philadelphia Eagles

The NFL remembers a lot of things.  Past schedules is one of them.  The Cardinals went into to Philadelphia in December 2013 and fell behind 21-0 early only to make it close in the end, falling 24-21.  Here we are back in Philadelphia in December again.

Sunday December 20th – Baltimore Ravens

The last matchup against the AFC North.  This will be a good one and both teams should be very much in the playoff hunt at this point.

Sunday December 27th – @San Francisco 49ers

The Cardinals ended with the 49ers the last two seasons, so this year I’m going out on a limb to say it won’t be three.

Sunday January 3rd – Seattle Seahawks

This would not be the first time the Cardinals ended the season at home against the Seahawks.  They also did it in January of 2012.
