Michael Bidwill wants a game in London for Arizona Cardinals

He wants in on that revenue, but doesn't want to give up a home game.

There is an NFL game this weekend in London and apparently Arizona Cardinals team president was out there taking questions at the league Fan Forum, according to SB Nation's Gur Samuel.

Bidwill, whose Cardinals are on their bye week, confirmed that the Arizona Cardinals would "definitely like to play a game in London."

They don't, however, want to play in London as a host team. They do not want to lose a home game at University of Phoenix Stadium.

What he says makes a lot of sense.

The Cardinals have sold out all 87 games they have played in University of Phoenix Stadium since it opened in 2006.

Of course, that would probably be the attitude of every NFL team -- they would love to have a road game in England.

Arizona's non-division opponents in 2015 will be the AFC North and NFC North. Their road games include the Bears, Lions, Browns and Steelers. None of those seem likely to be moved to London, based on the history and fan bases of those teams.

Arizona would also play an NFC East team on the road.

At home, they will host an NFC South team and then the Vikings, Packers, Ravens and Bengals.
