University of Phoenix Stadium
University of Phoenix Stadium is the home of the Arizona Cardinals of the National
Football League. The Cardinals take to the field there for each of their home games, which means two preseason games and eight
regular season games. If the Cardinals can make the playoffs, University of Phoenix Stadium might even be the site of one
or more of those contests as well. To reach the postseason, though, the Cardinals first have to play well at home throughout
the regular season. The Cards have some tough games on the horizon this season, and they're going to need all the fan support
they can get. The Cardinals have a big game coming their way at University of Phoenix Stadium on November 16th when they host
the Detroit Lions. The Lions have one of the most explosive offenses in the league, one that features playmakers like Calvin

Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks arrive for the final home game of the season. Make sure to check the full schedule for
all the biggest matchups.
