Fox announces week one broadcast assignments, Arizona Cardinals get Thom Brennaman

The Cardinals get Thom Brennaman on the call in game one of the season.

While we are still 40 days away from the start of the 2018 NFL season opener for the Arizona Cardinals, we now know who will be calling the game on September 9, 2018.

When the Arizona Cardinals host the Washington Redskins, they’ll have Thom Brennaman, analyst Chris Spielman and reporter Shannon Spake call the 1:25 pm kickoff.

That’s not a bad crew for the Cardinals, as Brennaman typically gets top games on the Fox call, so it’s a pretty good get for game one of the season when the Cardinals have one or the lowest win predictions in the NFL.

I think part of the draw for both teams is the change.

No Bruce Arians, no Carson Palmer, no Kirk Cousins for the Skins.

Alex Smith versus Sam Bradford is an interesting opening match up, to see what they’ll bring to their respective teams.

What do you think of the broadcast assignment for the Cardinals?
