The Arizona Cardinals have ended their playoff drought, so now, let’s get bold and outline their ideal road to Super Bowl LVI.

Yeah, the Arizona Cardinals were among the most favored teams in the NFL to at least get to Super Bowl LVI following their 7-0 start to the 2021 NFL Season. At home against the Green Bay Packers, they were on the verge of converting the game-winning touchdown to improve to 8-0 and take full control over the NFC playoff race.

You know what happened, and since that heartbreaking loss to the Packers, the Cardinals limped to an 11-6 finish. But hey, 4-6 finish to the season or not, their electrifying first half of 2021 proved that they’re capable of hanging with the league’s best.

The Cardinals’ worst loss to a 2021 playoff team this season came at home against the Rams, in which they lost by a touchdown. It should further grow the Red Sea’s confidence this team can beat whoever they play, wherever they play, given their road warrior mentality.

But what’s their ideal path to Super Bowl LVI, assuming they beat the Rams on Monday? Keep reading to see which teams give the Cardinals their ideal path to Super Bowl LVI.
