The Dallas Cowboys come into their week nine game with the Arizona Cardinals with an injured Tony Romo and a lot of questions. Here is a look at the Cardinals heading into this big game.
Overall, the Oakland Raiders played a solid game against one of the best teams in the NFL for the second week in a row. But the Silver & Black still don’t have a win in 2014, and that falls on the defense again. The offense is showing life; the defense just is painful to watch every time out.
Next up for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: the Arizona Cardinals, the team currently leading the tough NFC West with a 4-1 record this season. The Cardinals aren’t a dominating team, however, and if the Silver & Black can play well for a second week in a row for once, they may have a shot at the upset at the Coliseum.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.
After losing in week 2, the 49ers will look to bounce back against the Arizona Cardinals. San Francisco will face a must win as they can’t afford to drop two in a row, especially with one coming at the hands of a division rival.
The last game of the first week of the NFL season Monday evening brought fans a rematch of the preseason finale. Yes, field goals played a role in this game too.
As the San Diego Chargers get set to tackle the 2014 season in Glendale, Arizona next Monday evening versus the Cardinals, the squad finalized its preseason cuts and named players to the practice squad within the last few days.
In the preseason finale last Thursday evening in San Diego, the Bolts kicked their way to a 12-9 win over the NFC West Cardinals – yes, the same team they will face come Monday in Glendale.
Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Anybody who watched the Cardinals last year saw that they needed help at the quarterback position. Considering their options, Arizona has to be happy with their off-season addition of Carson Palmer.
