Wandering with the Arizona Cardinals – 2018

Let’s take a look at the Arizona Cardinals 2018 schedule to see if we can combine a game with the Sun Devils, Wildcats or D-Backs! The NFL, NCAA and MLB schedules are all available, but we’ll have to wait until later in the year to see if we can line up the Suns or Coyotes.

Sunday Sep. 9 vs Washington Redskins at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

The Cards open the season at home against the Redskins. You can catch the D-Backs against the Braves on Friday night, then an intriguing matchup of Michigan State vs Arizona State on Saturday. Not a bad weekend. The only issue will be the weather in early September, so bring plenty of sunscreen.

Sunday Sep. 16 at Los Angeles Rams at LA Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, CA

Start your weekend on Saturday with Fresno State vs UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Saturday. Then head south for the Rams vs Cardinals game on Sunday.  Catch some late season baseball with the Rockies visiting the Dodgers on Monday. You might even want to head to OC for the Friday game between the Angels and Mariners.

Sunday Sep. 23 vs Chicago Bears at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

More late season baseball is an option with the Rockies in town Friday through Sunday and the Dodgers open their series on Monday.

Sunday Sep. 30 vs Seattle Seahawks at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

With baseball season enter the post-season, we’ll have to wait to see if the D-Backs make a run, but with Oregon State in town, you can catch a nice football weekend.

Sunday Oct. 7 at San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA

Catch a PAC-12 game with Utah visiting Stanford or Colorado State visiting San Jose State.

Sunday Oct. 14 at Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN

With the Gophers out of town, we’ll have to see if the Twins or T-Wolves are in town.

Thursday Oct. 18 vs Denver Broncos at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

Oddly enough, you’ll have to choose between the Cardinals vs Broncos or the Cardinal vs the Sun Devils – with both teams hosting rare Thursday games.

Sunday Oct. 28 vs San Francisco 49ers U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

Unless you want to make the trip to Tucson for Oregon vs Arizona, we’ll have to wait until the NBA and NHL schedules are released.

Sunday Nov. 11 at Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO

After the Bye Week, the Cardinal visit KC. To the west, catch the Sunflower Showdown with Kansas vs K-State on Saturday.  To the east, an “SEC” matchup of Vandy vs Missouri.

Sunday Nov. 18 vs Oakland Raiders at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

Jon Gruden comes to town with his new Oakland Raiders. We’ll have to see if the Suns or Coyotes are in town since the Sun Devils and Wildcats are on the road.

Sunday Nov. 25 at Los Angeles Chargers at StubHub Center, Carson, CA

You have a couple of great options in town for college football with Notre Dame visiting USC and Stanford playing at the Rose Bowl against UCLA. Most likely, you’ll be able to add a basketball game and/or a hockey game as well.

Sunday Dec. 2 at Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI

After six years, the Cardinals return to Lambeau. Green Bay is difficult to pair with anything, but it’s worth the trip alone.  Maybe get some late season golf in at Whistling Straits.

Sunday Dec. 9 vs Detroit Lions at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

Check back for Suns and Coyotes games.

Sunday Dec. 16 at Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA

You might be able to catch an early season Bowl game with the AFR Celebration Bowl.  It’s played in Atlanta, but no date has been set yet.  You might also to be able to catch the Hawks or Thrashers in town.  Maybe against the Suns or Coyotes. While you’re there, check out the College Football Hall of Fame.

Sunday Dec. 23 vs Los Angeles Rams at U. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ

The schedulers usually include plenty of events in Phoenix around the holidays, so I’m expecting the Cactus Bowl, a Suns game and a Coyotes game, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Sunday Dec. 30 at Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA

The Cardinals finishing off their season on the road against the Seahawks.  With the weather in the Valley of the Sun, you might want to stay home this weekend!

That wraps up the Cardinals schedule for 2018.  Where will be you wandering this year?

Stop Wondering. Start Wandering!
