NFL to release regular season schedule on Thursday

The Arizona Cardinals will have one of the toughest schedules in the league this coming season.

They know who their opponents will be, and on Thursday, they’ll know when they’ll play them.

The NFL announced that the 2013 regular season schedule will be revealed at 8pm EST, 5pm Arizona time on Thursday.

The Cardinals home schedule features games against their division rivals, the 49ers, Seahawks and Rams. In addition to those three teams, Arizona will host the Lions, Falcons, Texans, Colts and Panthers.

Arizona will hit the road and face their division opponents again, along with games against the Saints, Buccaneers, Eagles, Panthers and Titans.

A rough schedule to say the least. First year head coach Bruce Arians and his team will be truly tested.
