A bit of good news heading into the final month. For the Cardinals, again the NFL could give them the benefit of being at home more down the stretch of the season.
The NFL has been kind to the Cardinals in December for the most part over the last couple of seasons. Here we think they will do it again, giving three of the final five games of the season to them at home.
They take road trips late in the season to two of the hardest hit areas of the pandemic, San Francisco and Seattle. The NFL may be planning to have fans in the stands but even at this point it is hard to see in places like San Francisco or Seattle.
Playing three of five at home to finish out the season could just be the advantage the Cardinals need to make a push for a wild-card playoff spot. Now that we’ve made these predictions, none of it will end up being true since this does take specific issues into account. We can’t wait for the schedule to be released!
