The NFL schedule makers did no favors for the Cardinals in the first half of the season. They sent the Cardinals on the road the first two weeks and back east three of the first five weeks. Brutal.
That being said, the flip side is the schedule works in their favor down the stretch. If they can weather the storm here in the middle of the season, December provides hope.
After the Cardinals play at the Houston Texans on November 19th, they do not go back out on the road again until December 17th at the Redskins. There are three games in between.
They play the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 26th and then start December off with two straight home games. They play the Rams on December 3rd and the Tennessee Titans on December 10th at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Then after the trip to Washington, the return home for a Christmas Eve matchup against the New York Giants. May I remind you as bad as it has been in Arizona, it is much worse right now in New York. They are 0-5 and just lost receiver Odell Beckahm Jr. for the season.
