There’s a real argument here that Arizona’s two-touch win at San Francisco was one of their most impressive performances this season. The cause was mainly due to the Niners cadre Cardinals with the offensive behavior of the second team. Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins missed the game through injury while Chase Edmonds left the field after one play. Colt McCoy is 22-26 for 249 yards and a touchdown while James Conner has 173 meters of script and three points. Arizona’s defense remained the same, forcing three turns and allowing 39 yards of quick charge. The Cardinals host the Carolina show this week and opened as a double-digit favorite.
And then there was Carolina, who finally brought Christian McCaffrey back, although the Panthers collective had an anemic afternoon of attack in the 24-6 loss to New England. Sam Darnold completed under 50% of his passes and threw three interceptions to bring his season total to 11. Matt Rhule voiced his confidence in Darnold a few weeks ago. But with 10 interceptions in 5 losses, maybe it’s time to explore other options. Darnold was moved to the bench with a broken shoulder injury, leaving PJ Walker and Cam Newton newly signed.
