The Arizona Cardinals announced their preseason schedule on Tuesday, revealing that the team will play one of its two home games on national television.

Apart from the game that will be on national TV, the exact times and dates of the other three games are still to be determined.

The Cardinals will open their preseason at home at State Farm Stadium to play the Los Angeles Chargers. That game will take place between Aug. 8 and Aug. 12., featuring a Chargers team that matched the 12-4 record put up by their AFC West rival Chiefs last season.

On Thursday, Aug. 15, the Cardinals play on ESPN at 5 p.m. MST against the Oakland Raiders. That game features some significant intrigue already, as those two teams are the two heavy favorites to land quarterback Kyler Murray in this year’s NFL Draft. That game also is at State Farm Stadium.

At some point between Aug. 22-25, the Cardinals will play their preseason Week 3 game in Minnesota at U.S. Bank Stadium. Last year’s Vikings went 8-7-1, finishing second in their division behind the Chicago Bears.

The Cardinals’ final preseason game in 2019 will be played in Denver at Mile High Stadium against the Broncos, who traded for former Ravens signal-caller Joe Flacco this offseason. That game is slated to fall on either Aug. 29 or Aug. 30.

The 2019 regular season schedule is expected to be announced later this month. It will include games against the Steelers, Browns, Falcons, Panthers and Lions, as well as division foes in the Rams, Seahawks and 49ers.
