The NFL will be here sooner than we think, even though it is farther away that we would like it to be. With the schedule set to be released this week, there will be plenty of predictions to make about each team in the league about how they could play out in 2024. The schedule is bigger than fans think because different scenarios can make or break a team. If a warm weather team heads north to play a team that plays in the snow in November/December, then it causes a big disadvantage. Vice versa with a warm weather team hosting a team up north in early September where the temperature is still scorching. 

When it comes to the Arizona Cardinals, they will have a tough schedule despite finishing 4-13 last season. In an already tough NFC West division, the Cardinals will have many other uphill battles throughout the season. Arizona had a boom of an offseason through free agency and the NFL Draft, but now it is time to hit the field and see what they will be this upcoming season. 

Outside of the NFC West, the Cardinals will have four tough opponents that will bring their best and cause trouble for the Cardinals. Jonathan Gannon and his coaching staff will have to be almost perfect as these four teams have either new faces or have had success in the last few seasons.

Here are the four tough non-NFC West opponents the Cardinals will play in 2024.
