2014 Arizona Cardinals Road Schedule
Though normally 10-6 is good enough for the playoffs, the Arizona Cardinals
don't play in an average division, making their winning 2013 season just short of ending in a trip to the postseason. But
as everyone can tell, this is a team on the rise and they're the type of squad that can beat anyone during a given game, no
matter where they end up taking to the field. Playing in the NFC West, it's definitely not going to be easy, but the Cardinals
have one of the most explosive rosters in the league and they're too good to be taken lightly as they hit the road looking
to wreak havoc once again this season.
Of course, one of the centerpieces on the road schedule this season is sure to
be Seattle, as the Cardinals will head on to play the defending champions on Nov. 23 in a game that is sure to have the Cardinals'
fan base fired up. This is a game that's going to be a struggle between two very talented teams that will likely be running
into each other near the top of the standings for many years to come. The Seahawks also got a nice reminder on their own home
turf last season what the Cardinals' defense is capable of, as the Cardinals harassed Wilson into him having his worst game
of the season and ultimately took down their best road win of the season.
The Cardinals will also travel to the Bay
Area to do battle with the San Francisco 49ers, another tough NFC West opponent. With a dynamic playmaker in quarterback Colin
Kaepernick, the Niners will definitely be a big-time challenge, but the Cardinals aren't exactly intimidated by anyone at
this point and the Dec. 28 matchup (which wraps up the regular season) is sure to be absolutely bursting with fanfare. There
are plenty of other amazing matchups as well, including at New York (Giants, Sept. 14), Denver (Oct. 5) and Dallas (Nov. 2).
With so many different exciting matchups and a team that has shown what they're capable of on the road, the Cardinals definitely
have a team that fans will be keeping an eye on this season.
Arizona Cardinals Team Info
The Arizona Cardinals
played very well last season, notching a 10-6 record and just about making it all the way to the playoffs despite playing
in the toughest division in baseball. Offensively, the Cardinals have some serious weaponry, with Carson Palmer under center
and emerging star Andre Ellington starting to turn heads all over the league. But the heart and soul of this team is their
defense, which has proven to be one of the staunchest in the entire league. Thanks to that type of balance, this is a team
in which the sky seems to be the limit, making them a significant factor in the NFC West and a team that can match anyone
in talent come game day.

Arizona Cardinals History
With a franchise that

days, the Cards again look like a team that's going to be a major factor in the coming years, bringing fans aspirations of
watching their first Super Bowl in their Arizona era.
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
