Arizona Cardinals: 10 reasons why 2017 not lost yet
Only one more east coast game
Every week I say don’t blame the 10 am Arizona start for the Cardinals woes. Even after a disappointing effort in Philadelphia on Sunday, it is still a lame excuse.
People like to call into the post-game radio shows and complain about it but it is what it is. The Cardinals flew to Philadelphia on Friday. They had two nights of sleep in the Eastern time zone. So spare the early game window excuse.
That being said, for those that do believe it is a factor, they only have one east coast game left. Not counting the game in London on a neutral field where both teams are at a time disadvantage, the Cardinals only have a visit to the Washington Redskins in December left.
Sure, they still travel to Houston in November but that is Central time despite the game being in the early window of games. The game at Washington will happen after the Cardinals had been home for three straight weekends.
