Five games I’m looking forward to the most on the Cardinals schedule:
1. Baltimore Ravens @ Cardinals, Monday October 26th
This will be a great matchup. ESPN is in town and that means former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will be here too. He’ll be pumped up for this one.
2. Cardinals @ Seahawks, Sunday November 15th
The Cardinals can try to revenge their Sunday Night Football loss last December against the Hawks. This one though will be in Seattle. I won’t lie, I don’t feel great about the Cardinals chances unless they are 100 percent healthy.
3. New Orleans Saints @Cardinals, Sunday September 13th
I like this pick for the season opener. The Saints are going to try to erase the memory of a bad 2014 season as quickly as they can.
4. Green Bay Packers @Cardinals, Sunday December 27th
Another great game that could have huge playoff implications. Week 16 has been usually tight in the NFC playoff race in recent years. I expect nothing less in 2015.
5. Cardinals @ Detroit Lions, Sunday October 11th
I’m sure the Lions were tired of coming to Arizona the past few seasons. Now it is time for the Cardinals to finally make another visit to the Motor City. This game is also a late Sunday game, not early so the Cardinals won’t have to worry about a sixth early game and don’t have to get up very early Arizona time.
