The Cardinals already knew when they would open the preseason, with an appearance in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio, against the Cowboys Aug. 3.

Now the rest of the preseason schedule has been laid out.

The Cardinals will be at home for the two games after the Hall of Fame excursion, playing at University of Phoenix Stadium against the Raiders the weekend of Aug. 10-14 and
then hosting the Bears the weekend of Aug. 17-21.

The last two preseason games will be on the road. The Cardinals travel to Atlanta to play in the first game ever at the Falcons’ new Mercedes-Benz Stadium between Aug. 24-27, and then close out the preseason by playing in Denver either Aug. 31 or Sept. 1.

Official dates and kickoff times are still to be determined. Training camp dates are also still to be announced.

The Cardinals begin their voluntary offseason strength and conditioning program one week from today.

The regular-season schedule – including when the Cardinals will play the Rams in London — is expected to be released as early as next week.
