The 3 Most Exciting Matchups From the 2021 Cardinals Schedule

In 2020 the Arizona Cardinals made strides, as the team went 8-8, wrapping up a third-place finish in the NFC West.

The team made some offseason moves that should only make them better, so expect the Cards to be even more competitive in the 2021 campaign.

Now the team is looking to be more consistent, and they want to make their head coach Kliff Kingsbury proud as they take the field.

On Wednesday night, the NFL released the 2021 Cards schedule, and we couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming season!

After looking through the schedule and giving it some careful consideration, these are the 3 matchups that I’m most looking forward to:

09/12 at Tennessee – The Titans have been on the cusp the last few seasons of being a part of the Super Bowl, losing in the AFC Title game to the Chiefs two years ago, and last year losing at home to the Ravens at home after a 10-0 lead. The Cards will be pushed to get out to an early lead in this opener, and if there’s one thing you know it’s that they need to play physical against QB Ryan Tannehill and company.

10/17 at Cleveland – Many are picking the Browns as the darlings of the NFL in 2021, ready to take home the AFC after a surprise playoff run in 2020. Again on the road it’ll be up to the Cards defense to make a statement against the likes of QB Baker Mayfield and company. Cleveland’s defense isn’t nearly as good as their offense, but if Murray and the Cardinals ‘O’ can make some plays they’ve got a shot to steal a win out East.

10/28 vs Green Bay – Can the Cards matchup with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers when they come to Arizona for a late October affair? Of course if Rodgers goes elsewhere, a ton will change, but here’s betting that the Pack are still looking at having #12 under center when the season starts. The question then becomes can Arizona’s defense stop the Pack offense?

Here’s hoping that the Cardinals go all the way this season!

Is CB Jaylen Waddle High on the Cardinals Draft List?

Quarterbacks and other top-10 prospects have dominated this year’s draft discussions, overshadowing the rest of this year’s class. The Cardinals hold pick No. 16 and are considering multiple paths, including one that involves a highly coveted pass catcher, Sam Robinson of Pro Football Rumors reports.

Arizona is interested in cornerbacks Patrick Surtain II and Jaycee Horn, per ProFootballNetwork.com’s Tony Pauline, who adds the team is also eyeing Jaylen Waddle. However, it is quite possible all three of these players will be gone by the time the Cardinals go on the clock. This would point to a trade-up scenario.

The Cards gave A.J. Green a one-year, $6MM deal to see if he can rediscover his pre-2019 form. They have Christian Kirk, but he is going into a contract year and has not been especially consistent as a pro. Larry Fitzgerald remains unsigned and is expected to retire after 17 seasons. Waddle would certainly make for a flashy DeAndre Hopkins complementary piece, but the Cards would almost certainly have to trade up to land him.

Patrick Peterson defected to the Vikings in free agency, and although Arizona agreed to terms with Malcolm Butler, he is going into his age-31 season. The Cardinals have Byron Murphy signed through 2022 but could use additional help at corner.

Surtain has been viewed as a player likely to go off the board in the top half of the first round for months, while Horn has made a late climb. However, Todd McShay’s latest ESPN.com mock has the South Carolina corner falling to the Cards at 16.

The team is believed to view linebacker Zaven Collins as a potential contingency plan, according to Pauline. A Tulsa product, Collins has a versatile skill set that could be utilized as a pass rusher or pure linebacker.

Now with Watt Aboard, Can the Cardinals Get Peterson Inked?

The Cardinals last week made the first big splash of free agency, signing J.J. Watt to a two-year, $31 million contract. The Cardinals hope Watt’s addition helps elevate their defense.

However, the uncertain future of one of their most prominent players over the last decade could affect those expectations, Mike Jones of USA Today reports.

The Arizona Cardinals last week made the first big splash of free agency, signing J.J. Watt to a two-year, $31 million contract. The Cardinals hope Watt’s addition helps elevate their defense.

However, the uncertain future of one of their most prominent players over the last decade could affect those expectations, Mike Jones of USA Today reports.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and three time All-Pro pick, is set to hit free agency next week, and to date, the two sides have yet to discuss a new deal.

Peterson recently shot down a rumor that he and the team had agreed to part ways, and Arizona owner Michael Bidwill this offseason has publicly expressed hope that his team can retain Peterson’s services. But for now, that’s just talk.

Peterson remains unfazed. He has chosen to approach free agency with patience and confidence that things will work out in his favor.

“I know that I will be playing football for someone, if it’s the Cardinals or someone else,” Peterson said. “I’m a go-with-the-flow-type guy. That’s out of my control. I’ve done everything I can do to show my worth, and I can still play this game. I know I will be playing football for somebody, so that’s my approach.”

Peterson, who turns 31 this summer, is coming off a three-interception, 61-tackle season while playing the final year of a five-year, $70.05 million contract. According to Spotrac, the Cardinals project to have around only $13.57 million in cap space and must determine Peterson’s worth while the cornerback reviews his options.

Cardinals Come to Terms with Free Agent DE J.J. Watt

The Cardinals defense just got a whole lot better – as the team has come to terms with former Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

Watt himself finally put the speculation to bed when he tweeted out a pic of him working out in a Cardinals t-shirt.

LB Hasson Reddick Sets Cardinals Franchise Record with Five Sacks in Win Over NYG

Cardinals linebacker Hasson Reddick was a one-man wrecking crew Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, setting a new record for sacks in the Cards 26-7 win over the Giants.

Reddick set the Cardinals franchise mark with five sacks and three forced fumbles, all of which came on sacks against New York.

“Right now I’m just processing it, I’m just taking it in. I cried at the end of the game, filled with joy, felt blessed,” Reddick said.

“This whole year has just been important to me, to see things going in the way that I want them to (be) going.”

Reddick’s mark passed Curtis Greer’s 4.5 sacks set in 1983 against the Eagles.

The fourth-year pro might as well make room for the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award for his outing, and the Cards should think seriously about making sure to keep him around as in his fourth season it seems he is ready to be a star.

Video: Two NFC West Foes Do Battle as Seattle Hosts Arizona

If it’s anything like the first battle, Thursday evening’s matchup between the Seahawks and Cardinals should be a classic for all to see.

The Cards won the first game in stunning fashion in overtime, knocking the Hawks at the time off the ranks of the undefeated.

Seattle, now at home, will be looking for revenge as they come in at 6-3, the same mark as the Cardinals, who are coming off a huge last play win over the Bills Sunday 32-30.

Here’s a preview of the game from NFL.com.

Cardinals DT Corey Peters to Miss the Rest of 2020 with Knee Injury

The Cardinals will be without defensive tackle Corey Peters for the rest of the season as he is out due to a knee injury.

The 32-year-old went down before halftime of the Cards 32-30 win over the Bills on Sunday at home.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said after the game that the injury looked serious as Peters was carted off the field.

Kingsbury confirmed on Wednesday that Peters would miss the final seven games of the regular season.

The 10-year veteran has been with the Cardinals for five years and started all nine games this season. He had 15 tackles, including three for a loss.

”Defensive line-wise, we’re a little bit banged up there,” Kingsbury said. ”But we’ll have enough guys to play and that’s all you can ask for. (Peters is) a tough loss like I mentioned the other day because of his leadership and what he brings to the locker room.”

Kingsbury didn’t elaborate on Peters’ injury. The NFL Network said Peters suffered a torn patellar tendon.
