The Arizona Cardinals’ 38-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday solidified the team’s opponents for the 2011 season. Those opponents will have a familiar feel.
The loss means the Cardinals will host the Carolina Panthers and travel to the Minnesota Vikings as oppose to the reverse. It will be the fourth season in a row they have faced the Vikings and the fifth they’ve faced the Panthers.
Another familiar opponent the Cardinals will face in 2011 is the Dallas Cowboys, who will visit University of Phoenix Stadium for the third time in four seasons.
The rest of the Cardinals home schedule will feature the usual suspect Seahawks, 49ers and Rams along with the Browns, Steelers and Giants and the aforementioned Cowboys and Panthers.
They will also travel to their division opponents as well as the Ravens, Bengals, Eagles, Redskins and the Vikings.
Dates and times for all games will be determined later in the offseason.
