How will the Arizona Cardinals fare in a full-season play-through of Madden with an updated roster?

The schedule is out. Madden roster updates are available. So of course I am ready to play through the Arizona Cardinals 2022 season schedule and see what chaos can be created.

Now time for complete disclosure. This season will be completely played by me and not rely on Madden simulation. That being said, I am a mediocre player at best so please keep that in mind and don’t roast me too hard.

For this season’s play-through, I have an updated roster that includes all draftees and major additions such as Marquise Brown. I will also leave DeAndre Hopkins out of the starting lineup until the Week 7 matchup when he is slated to return from suspension.

The Arizona Cardinals start off the 2022 season by hosting the Kansas City Chiefs in State Farm Stadium. Led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs have been one of the most successful teams in the past few years winning Super Bowl LIV in 2020 over a familiar NFC West rival.

The Chiefs will be without Tyreek Hill who left the team in the offseason and is now a Miami Dolphin. They also lost S Tyran Mathieu, a familiar face to Cardinals fans, who has signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Even with key pieces from their strong run atop the NFL missing, Kansas City is not a team to underestimate.

So, how did the Week One bout with the Kansas City Chiefs go? Keep reading.
