Last season, the Arizona Cardinals seemed destined for the NFC West crown until Carson Palmer tore his ACL and backup Drew Stanton also injured his knee. Luckily, Arizona’s defense rose to the occasion and clinched a playoff berth. Arizona lost in the Wild Card round to the Carolina Panthers, largely due to ineffective quarterback play by Ryan Lindley. Arizona will enter the 2015 season without the aid of its defensive coordinator, Todd Bowles, who accepted the New York Jets head coaching position. Still, with the recent success there will be some highly demanded Cardinals tickets on the secondary market.
Entering the 2015 season, Arizona’s most expensive home game will come in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers. Cardinals vs Packers tickets have a get-in price of $115, the only Cardinals game with a get-in price above $100. A week later, the Cardinals will host the Seattle Seahawks. Cardinals vs Seahawks tickets have a get-in price of $82. Once Palmer was lost for the season, and Stanton’s situation became unclear, Seattle overtook Arizona for the NFC West division crown. Arizona will look to return the favor this season. If Palmer remains healthy, Arizona is threat to win the NFC West.
Arizona’s Week 4 meeting with the St. Louis Rams will be the least expensive home game at University of Phoenix Stadium. Cardinals vs Rams tickets have a get-in price of $42.
Arizona added one key piece during free agency. Guard Mike Iupati bolted from San Francisco to join Arizona. Iupati will help Arizona set the tone through its rushing attack. Arizona also signed Corey Peters and Sean Weatherspoon to anchor its defense and re-worked Larry Fitzgerald’s contract to keep him in the desert. Entering the 2015 NFL Draft, Arizona has a clear need at running back. Arizona attempted to ride Andre Ellington as its workhorse running back, but his 195-pound frame took a beating and he ended the season on the injured reserve. Arizona has been linked to Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon as potential first round picks. The defensive line could also use some new, talented faces.
