The Arizona Cardinals are set to host the Kansas City Chiefs from University of Phoenix Stadium on saturday night for their first preseason game yet.

Preseason football is a way to get fans pumped up for the NFL season to begin. In fact, it’s probably one of the most exciting games right next to the opening season game, of course.

While most critics argue that preseason football is pointless and a waste of time, it really is a great chance to learn the depth of teams at every position, and get to know the players that aren’t always in the spotlight.

The Cardinals faced off against the Chiefs just last season during week 14 in what was a close game. The Cardinals came out on top with a 17-14 victory with a scoreless fourth quarter.

If this preseason game will be anything like the last meeting between these two games, then it’s set out to be an exciting game.

While there will be a lot of talent on the field, here are a few key players to watch out for.
