The Arizona Cardinals finally have a football game. The preseason is here. They are in Cincinnati and will take on the Cincinnati Bengals for each team’s preseason opener.
The Cardinals are coming off an 11-6 season and their first trip to the postseason since 2015. However, they were embarrassed in the first round and finished the season with one game in their final 5, including the playoff loss.
The Bengals, on the other hand, got hot and made a run to the Super Bowl, although they did lose to the Los Angeles Rams in the big game.
Arizona brought back most of their key players and signed quarterback Kyler Murray to a huge extension. The Bengals invested a ton of money into their offensive line to try and protect quarterback Joe Burrow.
Neither team will play most of their starters, so it will be a quarterback matchup of Trace McSorley for the Cardinals against Brandon Allen for the Bengals.
If you are planning on watching, streaming or listening to the game, below is the information you need.
