Is there anything more ideal than closing the season against a team you opened the season against, put up 38 points, and stuffed the league’s best running back? Not if you’re the Arizona Cardinals.
Ideally, the Cardinals, if they can snag a divisional game against the Cowboys and an NFC Championship matchup against the Packers, would play the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl LVI. An even greater omen is that if the Cardinals indeed make it to Super Bowl LVI, they will have done so in a building they went 2-0 in, SoFi Stadium.
While the odds of the Cardinals going through Dallas, Green Bay, and finally, back to LA for Valentine’s Day Eve date with the Titans are slim to none, it’s definitely the ideal route. They beat the Rams in LA once this season and the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
They also swept 2021-22 playoff teams on the road this season, and recent history isn’t on the Packers’ side in the NFC Championship Game. So it’s fitting to end the season against the same team in which they started their road to Super Bowl LVI.
