Bleacher Report has the Arizona Cardinals improving to 8-8 in 2020

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2020 NFL schedule out we are getting a plethora of record predictions.

Gary Davenport or Bleacher Report dropped his initial 2020 season predictions and has the Arizona Cardinals on a nice rise:

Were it not for Tom Brady heading to Tampa, the Arizona Cardinals might be the NFL’s hype darlings of 2020. That’s what happens when you make the offseason’s biggest veteran acquisition in wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and add one of the draft’s top defensive talents in Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons...

These Cardinals aren’t going to win 12 games. The playoffs are probably a long shot, too. But they are going to be better in 2020 than they were last season.

Prediction: 8-8

While everyone wants to see the Cardinals do better than 8-8, seeing NFL writers start to project the Cardinals out at 7+ wins is nice to see again.

Davenport hit on the division and the out of conference schedule is tough, but a five win turnaround in the first two season under Kliff Kingsbury would be a great sign and show that the foundation is set for the Arizona Cardinals.
