These Arizona Cardinals players will make an impact against the New England Patriots
The Arizona Cardinals open the season this Sunday evening on NBC’s Sunday Night Football against the New England Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. There are a lot of storylines going into this one.
Ever since the schedule came out in mid-April, Cardinals fans have had this game marked on the calendar. Knowing the Patriots would be on the schedule it was only a matter of when would they come to Arizona.
Unfortunately Cardinals fans will not get to see Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as he is suspended for the first four games of the season. Instead they will see Jimmy Garappolo under center.
Many Cardinals fans aren’t too terribly disappointed in that news. Still it would have been nice to see the Cardinals play the Patriots at their best.
For now though we take a look at the players that should make the biggest impact on the outcome for the Cardinals. The Cardinals have a lot of expectations going into the season and fans want those expectations to be set in motion right away.
Here are the three players that are likely to be the ones we are all talking about Monday morning. Forget preseason, it is time to lace them up for real.
