As crazy as it sounds, the craziness has been settled. With all the buzz and wait for the release of the NFL's 2014 schedule, we now know when the Arizona Cardinals will be playing the teams we have known since the end of last season.
Arizona has earned a bit of respect and it shows with three prime time games, including opening on Monday Night Football at home against the San Diego Chargers. They will also play the Rams in St. Louis on Thursday Night Football in Week 15 and host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football in Week 16.
They will have a very early bye, coming in Week 4.
The team will end the season in San Francisco on December 28.
