Now that the schedule is how we can take a look at how the Arizona Cardinals schedule might play out in 2018

We can complain all we want but the Arizona Cardinals schedule just is….a schedule.  The fun part leading up to the release was trying to predict how it might lay out.

In the end they didn’t get but one national television game, a Thursday Night Football tilt against the Denver Broncos in October.  They have five of their first eight games at home and two of their last four.

If the Cardinals are to have any success this season, they need to jump out fast in September with three of four games at home.  The only road game in September will be in Los Angeles against the Rams.

The second half of the schedule is tough.  Their bye week is week nine on November 4th.  After that they have just three homes games remaining.

In the end we really don’t know what will happen of course but we can make a best guess based on what we know about the teams as they stand now.  Thoughts may change once the NFL Draft takes place starting next week on Thursday April 26th.
