2010 Arizona Cardinals Schedule

The 2010 Arizona Cardinals Schedule promises to be a tough one especially with the question marks surrounding quarterback position. Still, Cardinals fans will expect to continue their success following 2009-10 campaign, one that saw them win the NFC West Division with an overall record of 10-6.

The team reached the playoffs and played in one of the more memorable games in recent NFL playoff history, against the Green Bay in which the Cardinals won on a wild interception in the over-time sudden death period to advance to the divisional round.

In the divisional round the Cardinals traveled to New Orleans to face the Saints, where the Saints dominated from the beginning of the game that resulted in the elimination of the Cardinals from the 2010 playoffs.

Arizona endured a lot during the off-season, with the retirement of quarterback Kurt Warner. On the 2010 Schedule for the Arizona Cardinals, they will be led on offense by Matt Leinart, who competed off-and-on with Warner for the starting position over the course of his young career.
