Guess what? Big news! The NFL released the preseason schedule for 2016! we now know what week and what team the Arizona Cardinals will have their fake games! For the most part, it is pretty normal.

They will play the Chargers and the Broncos, as they seem to do every year, ending with the Broncos. They will host the Raiders and they will play the Houston Texans in preseason Week 3 on national television.

The specific days and times have not yet been released, except for the third preseason game, which will air on FOX Sunday August 28 at 4 PM Eastern (1 PM Arizona time).

Arizona opens the preseason at home against the Raiders and closes it at home against the Broncos.

Here is the schedule:

Preseason Week 1 (August 11-15) *
Oakland at Arizona (University of Phoenix Stadium)

Preseason Week 2 (August 18-22) *
Arizona at San Diego (Qualcomm Stadium)

Sunday, August 28 at 1:00 PM (MST) on FOX
Arizona at Houston (NRG Stadium)

Preseason Week 4 (September 1-2) *

The weekend in San Diego might be the perfect reason to get out of town and avoid the Phoenix heat.
