No home games in November
Sure, the Cardinals don’t play at home in the calendar month of November. However their schedule on paper is not super rough.
They play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Tampa in week 10, 10 days after their Halloween game at State Farm Stadium. It is a game many Cardinals fans have circled on the calendar, facing former head coach Bruce Arians.
Then after that it is a return visit to the bay area to face the 49ers again on the 17th. Again, don’t know what we will get but it is a place the Cardinals know how to win.
Week 12 on the 24th will bring their bye week before they head off to the calendar month of December. With only two very winnable games on the calendar in the month of November, not playing a single game at home doesn’t sting too much here.
This isn’t to say the Cardinals will be in any kind of playoff race at this point. However, again, this is just pointing out the schedule is laying out nicer than once thought.
