Arizona Cardinals: 5 best non-conference games in Arians era
The Arizona Cardinals are getting set to play the AFC South for the second time in the Bruce Arians era
Bruce Arians has been the coach of the Arizona Cardinals for four years now. He has had a chance to see his teams play all four AFC divisions.
His first season as Cardinals head coach was in 2013. That season the Cardinals played the entire AFC South. In 2017, they are facing them again.
The Cardinals have gone 11-5 against the AFC since Arians took over, including 4-0 against the AFC South in 2013. With anticipation of the NFL schedule coming out this week, we take a look back at the best five non-conference games that have taken place since Arians took over.
There have been some snoozers but for the most part the non-conference games have been very competitive. The Cardinals went just 1-3 against the AFC East last season.
In 2014, the Cardinals went 3-1 against the AFC West and in 2015 they went 3-1 against the AFC North. With the second time around the rotation, the Cardinals will change locations of the games against the AFC South.
The Cardinals host the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars and take to the road to face the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans this season. It was the exact opposite in 2013.
