Arizona Cardinals: Way too early 2020 game predictions
Week 2: Sunday September 20th
at New York Jets
It seems that when the NFL schedules intraconference games, they like to stack them together a lot of the time, so back to back. The Cardinals had both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns in back to back at home in 2019.
It only makes sense they do it again. So off to New York the Cardinals will go for the first of two trips to MetLife Stadium in 2020.
It’s not out of the realm of possibility the Cardinals are forced to play two AFC games back to back to open the season. If that were to happen, it would not be surprising to see the back half of that combination to be on the road.
The Cardinals would be making their first trip to New Jersey to face the Jets since 2012. That one was a 7-6 snoozer the Cardinals dropped. It also happened to be the week before dropping a 58-0 contest in Seattle.
Don’t look for this one to finish 7-6 no matter how the personnel turns out. The Jets do have a good defense but will that carry into 2020? The Cardinals defense as it stands now is certainly not good enough to hold a team to 7 points, even the Jets.
