The Arizona Cardinals know most of who their opponents will be on the 2021 schedule
There is still one game on the 2020 schedule left to play on Sunday for the Arizona Cardinals. They have a season finale against the Los Angeles Rams that will help determine the last two spots in the NFC playoffs.
The only things left unknown are who in the NFC South and NFC East they will play. That all depends on whether the Cardinals finish second or third in the NFC West after Sunday’s play.
The will play the entire NFC West of course, along with the entire NFC North and AFC South. They will host the NFC South team, which could still be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Carolina Panthers.
They will play an NFC East team on the road. That team could still be the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, or Washington Football Team.
Home: Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, *NFC South
Away: Rams, 49ers, Seahawks, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, *NFC East
The home schedule is especially impressive. The Packers and Colts are two playoff contenders as could be the Vikings again next season. At the very least the Vikings have a huge following in Arizona. The NFC South team could be the Bucs and if it is, that most certainly will put people in the seats seeing former head coach Bruce Arians returning to State Farm Stadium.
The away schedule could be tough going to Tennessee and Chicago. They also could be potentially facing the number one pick for the Jaguars, who is likely to be quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
Certainly more will be made clear after Sunday but the schedule is definitely a good one from a competition standpoint for the Cardinals and entertainment wise for the fans. Let’s just hope we are discussing the schedule next year coming off a win against the Rams on Sunday.
