Which members of the Arizona Cardinals benefited the most and the least during the team’s two 2021 preseason matchups?

Due to the threat of Hurricane Ida, the Arizona Cardinals saw their final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints get canceled last Saturday.

However, the cancellation gave the Cardinals starters an extra week to rest their bodies and prepare for what will be a grueling Week 1 matchup with the Tennessee Titans and their All-Pro running back, Derrick Henry.

But before we talk about the regular season, let’s talk about three Arizona players that made a name for themselves during the short preseason.

We will also discuss members of the Cardinals that weren’t so hot and found themselves behind the 8-ball as we steamroll toward what should be an exciting regular season.

You can literally divide this list in many ways, but for the purposes of today’s discussion, we will only focus on the biggest winners and losers from the preseason.

Some players were fringe on the roster and made a name for themselves, while others proved themselves worthy of landing a more prominent role on the team. Others, unfortunately, did not grasp the opportunity at hand. So let’s meet these players.
