Arizona Cardinals fans will get to see their team in primetime before the 2022 regular season starts.
With the preseason being only three games long, the chances for the Cardinals to evaluate their talent are less than what they used to be. However, Field Yates tweeted out this year’s primetime preseason games, and the Cardinals are lucky enough to land one.
Week 2 will see the Arizona Cardinals matchup against the Baltimore Ravens at StateFarm Stadium. This is the first time since the 2015 season that Baltimore will visit the Cardinals at home.
That was a regular-season game in which the Cardinals won 26-18, thanks to Tony Jefferson’s last-minute interception of Joe Flacco.
Arizona Cardinals are hoping for a better outing in primetime in the preseason in 2022
The Cardinals were in primetime last year at home in Week 2 of the preseason but against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was an embarrassing game for the Cardinals where Kyler Murray was very ineffective, and the Cardinals lost 17-10.
This will most likely be the “dress rehearsal” for the Cardinals’ starters, and there’s no better team to do it against than a quality opponent like the Ravens. Marquise Brown and Trace McSorley will see their former team for the first time.
It’s just a preseason game, and it doesn’t count for anything real except evaluating talent. Many fans are interested in seeing how Brown and Kyler Murray will work together, this being their first true chance.
Rookies like Keaontay Ingram and Cameron Thomas will be under the microscope, especially in their first primetime game. Eno Benjamin and Darrell Wiliams are two other names that should get significant playing time in this game.
Here’s hoping for a win against the Ravens, but it’s no sweat off the Cardinals’ back if they can’t get it done.
