The Arizona Cardinals and the rest of the 2020 NFL Schedule has been released
Whether these games actually take place or not remains to be seen. For now, the Arizona Cardinals can start to planning their season opener on Sunday September 13th.
The Cardinals will open the season against the San Francisco 49ers. That much isn’t a surprise but that fact the game is scheduled in San Francisco, where things are still very dicey. Santa Clara County (CA) leaders have said no fans till after Thanksgiving.
Why schedule 49ers games at home before November? I know there’s a need for balance, but still. Nothing is going to be balanced right this season, let’s just be honest.
The Cardinals do get two national television games but looks like a possibility for a third in late December against the 49ers. The Cardinals will travel to the Dallas Cowboys for Monday Night Football on October 19th and will have a Thursday Night Football game at the Seattle Seahawks on November 19th.
Here’s how the schedule pans out for the Cardinals:
Week 1 (Sunday September 13th) – at San Francisco 49ers, 1:25 pm
Week 2 (Sunday September 20th) – Washington Redskins, 1:05 pm
Week 3 (Sunday September 27th) – Detroit Lions. 1:25 pm
