The Arizona Cardinals will be playing on national television in over 23% of their regular-season games in 2022.

Three of those contests will be within a five-game span from Weeks 11-16, the last of which is on Christmas Day for the second consecutive season.

However, All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins won’t be missing any of those matchups due to his six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy.

That’s because the very first game of Week 7 — the first in which Hopkins is eligible to play — will be on Thursday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 20 at 5:15 p.m.

Four weeks later on Nov. 21, the Cardinals will travel to Mexico City to take on the NFC West Division rival San Francisco 49ers at Estadio Azteca at 6:15 p.m on Monday Night Football.

After hosting the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 12 and a Week 13 bye, Arizona will take on the New England Patriots on Dec. 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale on Monday Night Football at 6:15 p.m.

And following a trip to Denver to play the Broncos, the Cardinals host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Dec. 25 on Sunday Night Football at 6:20 p.m.

Arizona lost to the Indianapolis Colts 22-16 on Christmas Day last season.

Single-game tickets for all Cardinals home games this season will go on sale at www.azcardinals.com/gametix.
