The Arizona Cardinals’ 2024 season kicks off on the road against the Buffalo Bills

The Arizona Cardinals head to the East Coast to kick off their 2024 season and take on Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. The last time the Cardinals played in Buffalo was in 2016, where the Bills came out victorious 33-18. However, the last time the Bills and Cardinals faced each other was in 2020 in Arizona, where a back-and-forth between Kyler Murray and Josh Allen ended in a “Hail Murray” pass in which DeAndre Hopkins caught the game-winning touchdown. three defenders to give the Cardinals a 32-20 victory.

Heading into 2024, the Bills are the ideal opponent to test early on. Buffalo is a non-conference opponent and the Cardinals get a trip to the East Coast early on.

The Bills are going to look new this year with the various moves they’ve made, including trading wide receiver Stefon Diggs. However, Josh Allen is still under center and the Bills are a well-coached team. At the same time, the Cardinals are a much better team than last year. Murray is going to be back for a full season, Arizona has new weapons on offense and the defense has improved in free agency.

This is a great but difficult first test. The Bills are still in the conversation as Super Bowl contenders because of Allen. Buffalo is the type of team that will either show up and show no mercy to their opponents, or completely fall apart at some point in the game. Either way, the Cardinals will have to give their best from the start.

We’ll get a potential glimpse of what the Cardinals will be like in 2024 when they head to Western New York for an exciting matchup with the Bills.
