TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Arizona Cardinals released their 2019 schedule and it could be a tough end to the season for the Red Birds.
The team opens the season on Sept. 8, hosting the Detroit Lions. It's the fifth time in the last six years the Cards will open the regular season at home.
The Cardinals head to Baltimore to play the Ravens in Week 2, which could be a Kyler Murray (should the Cardinals draft him) versus Lamar Jackson matchup.
Arizona then hosts the Carolina Panthers and then the Seattle Seahawks, marking the second straight season the Cardinals will start the season with three of their first four games at home.
That means the Cardinals will be on the road for three weeks in October before hosting the San Francisco 49ers in primetime on Thursday, Oct. 31.
Week 10 the Cardinals will travel to Tampa Bay to face their old coach Bruce Arians and the Buccaneers.
It'll be a tough five weeks to end the season after the bye week with at the Los Angeles Rams, hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers, hosting the Cleveland Browns, then at Seattle and at the Rams.
