All our predictions for the roster on the Arizona Cardinals schedule are based on the team keeping and starting these key players.

Arizona Cardinals roster outlook

  • QB: Trace McSorley, Kyler Murray (injured)
  • RB: James Conner, Keaontay Ingram, Darrel Williams, Jonathan Ward
  • WR: DeAndre Hopkins, Marquise Brown, AJ Green, Robbie Anderson, Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch
  • TE: Zach Ertz (injured), Trey McBride, Maxx Williams
  • OL: DJ Humphries (injured), Justin Pugh, Rodney Hudson, Will Hernandez, Kelvin Beachum

After a strong 2021 season where they finished 11-6, the Cardinals were bounced in the first round of the playoffs to division rivals and the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams. Unfortunately, Arizona did not make major changes in the offseason and actually dealt with significant losses and drama.

The Cards lost key contributors like Christian Kirk and Chandler Jones in free agency. Top wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is suspended for the start of the season, and Kyler Murrary’s future has been a source of headlines throughout April. Nevertheless, the team still has some talented players that should help them contend for the division title in 2023.

The 2022 season will be a winning season for the Arizona Cardinals, but in a division with the defending Super Bowl Champions and the 49ers, as well as a difficult schedule to start the season, the team will have to fight for a wild card playoff spot at the end of the year.

After having a rough beginning of the season, look for the Cardinals to rack up a bunch of wins throughout the middle of 2022. When all is said and done, they’ll have double-digit wins again but still finish third in the division.
