The Arizona Cardinals have settled on their 2023 preseason schedule, setting the stage for an exciting commencement to the football year. This season’s preseason will start with two home games, followed by a single road game to conclude.

Week 1: Cardinals vs Broncos at State Farm Stadium

The Cardinals will kick off their preseason at home, hosting the Denver Broncos on August 11th. The game is set to kick off at 7 p.m. MST at State Farm Stadium. This matchup brings former Arizona lineman Zach Allen to the field with the Broncos after signing a multi-year contract with them this offseason. The game will also see former Cardinals coaching candidate Sean Payton, who has taken over as the Broncos’ head coach this season. This will be a significant opportunity for the Cardinals to test their new roster additions and evaluate the team’s performance ahead of the regular season.

Week 2: Cardinals vs Chiefs at State Farm Stadium

Continuing their home game streak, the Cardinals will host the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs on August 19th. The game will be held at State Farm Stadium, with a kickoff time of 5 p.m. MST. The last time the Chiefs were in Arizona, they were hoisting up the Lombardi Trophy after knocking off the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII. This will be a challenging match as the Cardinals will be up against the Super Bowl champions, providing a stern test of where the team stands.

Week 3: Cardinals at Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium

To wrap up their preseason, the Cardinals will head on the road to face the Minnesota Vikings on August 26th. The game will be held at U.S. Bank Stadium, with a kickoff time of 10 a.m. MST. This game will be against a familiar face, cornerback Byron Murphy, who now plays for the Vikings. As the final preseason game, this will be the last opportunity for players to make their case for a spot on the final roster, and for the team to solidify their strategies before the regular season starts.

The preseason games serve as a pivotal time for teams to assess their rosters, with players vying for starting roles and roster spots. Coaches will also be working to fine-tune game plans and build momentum leading into the regular season.

As the Cardinals look to improve from their previous season, these preseason games will play a substantial role in setting the tone for the team. The Cardinals’ fans, known as the “Birdgang,” will undoubtedly be watching these games closely, eager to see what the team will bring to the 2023 season
