PHOENIX - The Arizona Cardinals are coming off a 5-11 season and looking to improve. The regular season schedule was released and it appears a weak schedule might help that happen.
Based on last year's opponent records their Cardinals have the #32 hardest schedule in 2011.
The Cardinals first game is against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, September 11 in Glendale.
They have the two games, home and away, against their NFC West opponents.
Week 6 is when they have a bye week.
They also play the Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals on the road.
Of course, the lockout could delay or cancel the 2011 season.
