Arizona Cardinal fans suffered through a dismal 2018 season. It cost head coach Steve Wilks his job after just one season.
One could argue the Cardinals fired the wrong Steve. GM Steve Keim gave Wilks a roster flawed in vital areas. He also hired the most unimaginative offensive coordinator in the league to help his defensive-minded coach develop a rookie quarterback.
But there does seem to be a plan this season.
Arizona grabbed over a dozen free agents and signed most of them to one-year deals. With a wealth of draft picks, it looks like they are trying to create a team of the near future with plenty of veteran presence to act as stopgaps and mentors for the youngsters.
This could be another long season in the desert. Or maybe not…

Watch Cardinals vs Lions Live Using VPN
Fans who need to look like they are somewhere else can subscribe to Virtual Private Networks or VPN. Signing into a VPN server in another city helps fans watch Cardinals vs Lions NFL games that are blacked out in their market area and catch their local NFL broadcasts when they are out of town.
The process is simple. Just go to the VPN company’s website and sign in. Then look for a server in the city that is broadcasting the game you want to watch. Once you are signed in there, the local television network will think you are local and allow you to watch their live stream feed of the game.
But first, you have to find a reputable VPN provider with excellent connection speeds, superior anti-virus and encryption software, and reliable customer service.
ExpressVPN is such reputable VPN service with servers around the United States and overseas. They offer military-grade encryption services and state-of-the-art security software to protect you and your computer from viruses and hacks.

The NFL Ticket Exchange is operated by Ticketmaster, one of the nation’s oldest and largest ticket brokers. Both the NFL and Ticketmaster charge fees of 10-15 percent for their services, but they guarantee the purchase against fraud and offer a secure transaction.
StubHub is one of many independent ticket exchange companies for buyers and sellers. If you have a hot ticket that commands more than face value, private brokers don’t usually have limits on asking prices. Consider StubHub or another independent broker, but be sure they state their guarantee and fees before you commit to a purchase.
