Denver at Arizona, 8:20p, NFLN (Cardinals +1.5, O/U: 42.5)
Coming off a week in which they hung in there with the powerful Vikings, Josh Rosen had a strong game going 21/31 for 240 yards and a pick. The Chosen Rosen has started to develop a report with fellow rookie Christian Kirk as he’s been his top target since Rosen took the starting job from Sam Bradford. Rosen has looked better each week and seems to be settling into a more comfortable state with each game he plays. There are many question heading into the game for both sides but for the Cardinals, is David Johnson going to break out this game against the leagues worst rush defense?
The Broncos have their own set of struggles that they’re working through as I mentioned with the leagues worst rush defense. They are getting to quarterbacks however with Miller snagging 5.5 sacks and rookie Chubb earning 4.5 himself. The rushing game which started off on fire in their first two weeks (which were wins) has cooled quickly to basically non-existent as of last week. They’ve had success through the air (7 touchdowns) however, tossing 8 picks has essentially soured the move to bring Case Keenum on board as “their guy”.
Take the Cardinals to be the true home dogs and steal a win covering in the over, Cardinals 24-21.
