The Cardinals will not have to wait long to have another crack at the Steelers because they will open the preseason on the road in Pittsburgh. The game will be featured on ESPN’s Thursday night preseason opener on August 13th with the Monday Night Football crew calling the game.
Bryant McFadden, the Cardinals’ newly acquired and former Steelers’ CB, remarked that “it’s preseason, but still it’s going to be an exciting atmosphere. Finishing my last playoff game [in Pittsburgh] and then starting my ’09 season there, well, sometimes, that’s how the cookie crumbles.”
The Cardinals’ remaining preseason games are home against the Chargers (sometime between August 20-24) and Packers (sometime between August 27-31); the dates and times for the home games are not finalized. The Cards finish their preseason schedule away against the Broncos on September 3rd.
