NFL Network predicts another Cardinals’ collapse in 2022

The Arizona Cardinals hope to follow up their 11-win 2021 campaign and trip to the playoffs with another successful season that has a better end.

In predictions I made after their schedule was released in May, I predicted an 11-6 season again and trip to the postseason.

NFL Network’s Adam Rank also gave his predictions for each game of the season for all 32 teams. They start hot again and fall apart.

Check them out below.
