Week 10: at Seattle Seahawks

Oh boy.  Here we go.  The Cardinals were outscored 54-9 last season.  The Seahawks lost a few guys to free agency but got tight end Jimmy Graham.  We all know the Cardinals already have issue covering tight ends.  Now add a good one to Seattle’s offense and you’ll have trouble convincing me the Cardinals chances have gotten any better.

Now, this one is also slated for another national television audience on Sunday Night Football.  That is a double whammy.  I won’t say it will take a miracle but I don’t see much changing from last season.  At least not at this point.

Prediction: Seattle 24 Arizona 13

Week 11: Cincinnati Bengals

You never know what you are going to get from the Bengals.  Quarterback Andy Dalton can be hot or cold on any given week.  Still a formidable opponent that always seems to fight for a playoff spot.

This will be the Bengals first regular season visit to University of Phoenix Stadium.  They did play there in the 2014 preseason.  Game is going to be coming off a loss, so time to get back to winning.

Prediction: Arizona 24 Cincinnati 10

Week 12: at San Francisco 49ers

Time for the second meeting of the season.  Levi’s stadium doesn’t seem to be the daunting place the Niners had hoped it would be.  This will be the Cardinals second trip to the new stadium.

This is hopefully the first of two visits to Levi’s this season.  Super Bowl 50 is going to be played there in February.  The Cardinals are due for a road win against the Niners.

Prediction: Arizona 23 San Francisco 21

Week 13: at St. Louis Rams

The Cardinals played a close one in a loss to open the 2013 season here.  They won a field-goal battle here in 2014.  The Rams have payed division opponents tough here the past couple of years.

The Cardinals are never intimidated by the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome though.  It will be important to pick up this win within the division as the playoff push starts.

Prediction: Arizona 26 St. Louis 24
