Arizona Cardinals Road Schedule in 2014
The Arizona Cardinals are ready to soar this season as they hit the road
to play against some of the best teams in the National Football League. The Cardinals were able to win 10 games last season,
but still narrowly missed out on the postseason. The team is back and ready to change that this season by contending for the
division crown in the competitive NFC West. Last season the Super Bowl Champion came out of this division when the Seattle
Seahawks won it all. The Cards will face some of the toughest teams in the league on the road this season, and fans of the
team will travel around the country with the Cardinals to enjoy as much football action as possible.
Arizona will have
a heck of a game on their hands when they travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks won
the Super Bowl last season thanks to their stout defense and consistent offense. With quarterback Russell Wilson looking like
a star player so early in his career, the Seahawks could be good for years to come. The Cardinals will have to hope that their
defensive unit can outdo that of the Seahawks, which is never an easy task.
The Cardinals will also travel to the Bay
Area to do battle with the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners are another team from the NFC West to make the playoffs last season.
They've got a strong defensive unit as well, one that can shut down opposing offenses. With a dynamic playmaker in quarterback
Colin Kaepernick, the Niners hope their have an emerging star player. Arizona will have to contain Kaepernick, which is never
easy thanks to his ability to take off on the ground and net big gains. The Cards would love to take down the Niners in San
Fran this season.
Arizona Cardinals Team Info
The Arizona Cardinals played very well last season, notching
a 10-6 record. However, due to a strong NFC West and conference in general the Cards were unable to make the postseason despite
their impressive record. The Cardinals had one of the best defensive units throughout the 2013 NFL season, which was a big
part of the team's success. Opponents had trouble finding holes in this Arizona defense last season, though some found success
through their tight ends. Still, Arizona remains stout defensively and should continue to frustrate opposing offenses in 2014.
Offensively, the Cardinals progressed well last season. Head coach Bruce Arians had quarterback Carson Palmer slinging the
ball all over the field, and the running game improved thanks largely to the emergence of Andre Ellington. The Cards may look
to give Ellington a bigger role in the backfield with the departure of Rashard Mendenhall, but that remains to be seen. This
Cardinals team is surely hungry for a playoff appearance this season after coming so close in 2013.

Arizona Cardinals Trivia
The Cardinals have won the NFC West division title twice. In what years did the team
earn those divisions crowns?
The answer is 2008 and 2009, as the Cardinals won back-to-back division titles under the
leadership of veteran quarterback Kurt Warner. One of those years the team made it all the way to the Super Bowl, where they
were narrowly edged out by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Warner experienced a career revival in Arizona after looking like he would
be relegated to backup duty after a tough stint with the New York Giants.
Arizona Cardinals History
Arizona Cardinals play in the National Football League as members of the NFC West division. The Cardinals are one of only
two charter members of the NFL to remain in the league today, as they entered the NFL in 1920. The team currently plays in
Glendale, AZ, but had previously played in Chicago and St. Louis before moving out west. During the 2008 season the Cardinals
made it all the way to the Super Bowl thanks to a resurgent season from quarterback Kurt Warner, but ultimately fell to the
Pittsburgh Steelers in the big game.
