The NFC West will face the entirety of the NFC East and AFC North next year, and with the regular season now over, the Arizona Cardinals know the rest of their 2023 opponents.

Arizona’s home games will be highlighted by visits from the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals.

On the road, the Cardinals notably face the 2022 No. 1-seeded Philadelphia Eagles. Arizona also visits the two teams with draft picks ahead of it at No. 3: The Chicago Bears with the first overall selection and the second-picking Houston Texans.

The Cardinals closed the year at 4-13, at the bottom of the NFC West, and that has them facing the Atlanta Falcons and Bears, the NFC’s other fourth-place squads.

The AFC South’s last-place Texans are the 17th game on the schedule.

And as usual, Arizona will face the intra-division San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks at home and on the road.

How the NFL schedule is made

Per NFL.com:

  • Six games against divisional opponents — two games per team, one at home and one on the road.
  • Four games against teams from a division within its conference — two games at home and two on the road.
  • Four games against teams from a division in the other conference— two games at home and two on the road.
  • Two games against teams from the two remaining divisions in its own conference — one game at home and one on the road. Matchups are based on division ranking from the previous season.
  • The new 17th game is an additional game against a non-conference opponent from a division that the team is not scheduled to play. Matchups are based on division ranking from the previous season.
