In spite of the current NFL lockout and mediation/litigation that is happening, the league is set to announce the game schedules for the 2011 season. This will allow us to soon know the Arizona Cardinals 2011 schedule. We already know who their opponents will be and which teams will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium and which will be on the road.
Here is how the matchups shape up:
The official league schedule is set to be announced Tuesday at 7PM ET (4PM AZT). The announcement will take place on NFL Network.
What are the key questions dealing with the schedule? We want to know of the Cards will play in prime time on Sunday or Monday nights. Will they play any early East Coast games? When will the road games be (weather on the East Coast will be a factor)? Who will be the opponent in Week 17?
Obviously, this is all contingent on their being no lost football and that a CBA will be in place sometime in the not so distant future. Even still, the mere fact that the league is announcing the schedule can be seen as a good sign that there is no plan for lost football.
Tune in today at 4PM to find out the details.
