As 2015 begins, a look at … 2016 opponents

Posted by Darren Urban on July 31, 2015 – 8:46 am

Yes, training camp starts today (hopefully you can check out our redesigned homepage and our training camp page.) But before we get off and running, how about a quick glance at the Cardinals’ opponents for the 2016 season — which, as you know, the league has determined 14 of the 16 regular-season games already.


— New Orleans Saints
— Tampa Bay Buccaneers
— New England Patriots
— New York Jets
— NFC East team that finishes in same divisional spot as Cardinals
— Seattle Seahawks
— San Francisco 49ers
— St. Louis Rams (assuming the Rams are still in St. Louis)


— Carolina Panthers
— Atlanta Falcons
— Buffalo Bills
— Miami Dolphins
— NFC North team that finishes in same divisional spot as Cardinals
— Seattle Seahawks
— San Francisco 49ers
— St. Louis Rams (even more important to see if Rams are still in St. Louis)

    If the Eagles finish 2015 with the same record as the Cardinals, not only will Chip Kelly be regarded as a genius, but we’ll face all the same teams we faced in our playoff run to the Super Bowl.

    I can’t believe we missed on on Junior Galette. He signed for the league minimum as a Washington Redskin.

    As we finish First in the NFC West and Dallas wins the NFC East, it will be good to see the “Girls” come back for their semi-annual whooping at UOP Stadium in 2016.

    Andy, You most likely missed the reports on Galette, but the word on the street is he is an extreme Jack%^& in the locker room. We don’t need that.

    For me, it’s less about the opponents and more about what kind of shape the Cardinals are in come week 1. Specifically, it’s about Carson Palmer. As long as he is under center, this team is as real as it gets and as such, they can go toe-to-toe with anyone.

    There was NO WAY this team could maintain in 2014 under the weight of all of those injuries. It was just too much, both sides of the ball. Hard to believe that kind of injury avalanche could occur again to that same extent. With better health, this team is in the mix, no doubt.

    As always, we HAVE to be able to beat Seattle at least once. The division is likely to come down to them and us. I mean, we KNOW the Seahawks are gonna be there. So, if we’re gonna take this division, we have to have at least one head-to-head win against Seattle. We lose two to them ( again ), we can kiss the West good-bye. Then, it’s a wild-card spot ( maybe ), you play no post-season games at home, and it’s all up-hill from there.

    And I like that I believe it’s more about the Cardinals and what shape they’re in than the opponents. Because that always tends to be true of the better teams in the league.

    Darren, correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe after next year every NFL team will have played in UofP Stadium once the Jets visit. Technically, the Jets and Patriots are the last two teams that have yet to visit (after Baltimore and Cincinnati visit this year,) although the Patriots have played in TWO Super Bowls there.
