The NFL released team schedules Thursday and the Cardinals schedule is highlighted by two primetime games, both on the road. The Cardinals will play the Cowboys at Dallas on Monday Night Football Oct. 19 in Week 6, then play the Seahawks at Seattle on Thursday Night Football a month later, Nov. 19 during Week 11.
The Cardinals were supposed to have a home game in Mexico City, but the game was moved back to Glendale's State Farm Stadium after the NFL canceled all its foreign games this season.
The Red Birds start the season on the road against the NFC champions San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Sept. 13. The following week, the birds hold their home opener against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 20.
The Cardinals play their final regular season home game against the 49ers in Week 16 on either Saturday, Dec. 26 or Sunday, Dec. 27. The time of the game is still to be determined. They end their season at the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021.
The two most unique visitors to Glendale this year will be the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Nov. 8 in Week 9 and the Buffalo Bills the following week, Sunday, Nov. 15 in Week 10. In the NFL's current scheduling format, teams host teams from the opposite conference once every eight years.
The Cardinals' bye week is in Week 8.
The NFL is planning for a normal season but also planning for contingencies, forming a ticket refund policy in the event of canceled games or games held without fans.
