Arizona Cardinals: 5 bold predictions for 2016
By Scott Allen
The Arizona Cardinals do have a few questions despite not a lot of changes from 2015
The Arizona Cardinals come into the 2016 season having to replace some people but for the most part the 2016 roster will look a lot like the 2015 team, especially on offense.
The defense will see some changes on the defensive line with Chandler Jones, at linebacker, and in the secondary with a couple of young faces such as safety Marqui Christian and cornerback Harlan Miller.
Here are five bold predictions for the Cardinals for the upcoming 2016 season.
The Cardinals will not lose more than four games
The Arizona Cardinals schedule is more difficult in 2016 than it was in 2015. I don’t think there is much question about that.
With games against the New England Patriots, New York Jets, Carolina Panthers, Minnesota Vikings, and the Seattle Seahawks twice, the Cardinals will have some really tough games.
They also should be wary of the Los Angeles Rams (twice), the Miami Dolphins, and the Buffalo Bills. They also play last season’s NFC East champion Washington Redskins.
While it is going to be a tough task to equal or beat the 13 victories the Cardinals had in 2015, it is not impossible. I don’t know how the Cardinals don’t lose at least two or three games so I will say they will win at least 12.
With few changes on the offense and a few tweaks on defense, especially in the secondary, the Cardinals should look a lot like their 2015 selves.
