Arizona Cardinals 2020 schedule shaping up
There’s still a month left in the 2019 season, but for the Arizona Cardinals the planning for 2020 should start now
It’s always exciting to start looking forward to the next season when the Arizona Cardinals and their fans know the current season is pretty much a lost cause. That said, there is still some exciting football ahead over the last 5 weeks for the team.
The Cardinals still have a shot at finishing over .500. The odds are slim, but the chance exists. Until those games play out, we can look forward to what lies ahead next season.
The Cardinals will play their usual home and home games with the Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, and San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals still have both the Rams games and a Seahawks game remaining this season.
They will play the AFC East next season. The road games are at the New York Jets and New England Patriots. The home games are against the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.
Their rotation takes them to the entire NFC East block in 2020. They will play at the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. Their home games will be against the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins.
The last two games are against the team that finishes in the same position as the Cardinals in the NFC South and NFC North. As of right now, they would host the Detroit Lions and go on the road to face the Atlanta Falcons.
So, to recap, the Cardinals would have the Giants, Lions, and Falcons again. They are 2-0-1 against those teams this season. The only difference here is the Cardinals would be on the road against the Falcons.
As you see, they also have the Jets, Redskins, and Dolphins on the schedule. It could end up being a decent chance for the Cardinals to accumulate some wins next year.
First thing is first however. They need to figure out who is going to be replaced on that mess they call a defense. That is the first step in getting back to their winning ways.
