Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting

One year ago, the Arizona Cardinals were playoff bound. But a 10-2 start was followed by a 1-4 finish. And the playoff game was a 34-11 blowout loss at the Los Angeles Rams that was worse than the score indicated. That game proved to be a warning for 2022. Despite the poor finish, head coach Kliff Kingsbury was extended through the 2027 season. Now the Cardinals may be regretting that decision. Also regretful is that a $230.5 million contract extension was given to QB Kyler Murray, despite a provision in the contract that he had to improve his study habits. That provision was a stinging indictment of Murray’s work ethic. This season, Murray could answer the bell in only 11 games. And he was significantly less impressive when he did. So Arizona enters the offseason on the hook for a lot of money on two failed properties.

The Cardinals ended the season with seven straight losses to tie a franchise record for losses in a season.

The game started well for Arizona when fourth-string quarterback David Blough connected on a 77-yard TD pass to AJ Green off a trick play. It was on their second play from scrimmage.

The only other highlight for the Cardinals was the two sacks by JJ Watt, giving the three-time Defensive Player of the Year 120 1/2 in the regular season and playoffs in his 12-year career.

McCaffrey answered Arizona's quick score when he caught a short pass from Purdy and turned it into a 21-yard score to extend his touchdown streak to six straight games.

The first of two interceptions by Tashaun Gipson Sr. set up the 49ers' second touchdown when Elijah Mitchell ran it in from 5 yards out in his first game back from injured reserve.

Mitchell added another TD run in the third quarter as he tunes up for the playoffs.

Purdy found Kittle from 4 yards out with 19 seconds left in the half to make it 21-13 on Kittle's 10th TD catch of the season. The two connected again late in the third quarter, giving Kittle seven TD catches from Purdy in the last four games. Purdy finished 15 for 20 for 178 yards.

Watt took a ceremonial bow in the first quarter after bringing down Purdy - the 50th QB he has sacked in the regular season or playoffs.

Watt announced his decision to retire late last month and responded with three sacks in his final two games to reach 12 1/2 on the season.

Blough left in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion and didn't return. He left after losing a fumble on a sack by Jordan Willis for his third turnover of the game.

With quarterback Kyler Murray and coming off a playoff season, the Arizona Cardinals are an attractive property to the networks for prime time dates.

The Cardinals will host the New Orleans Saints on Prime Video in week seven for a Thursday night matchup. Week 11 brings a home game against the San Francisco 49ers on ESPN Monday Night Football. Arizona returns to ESPN Monday Night Football in week 14 against the visiting New England Patriots. Week 16 brings an NBC Sunday Night Football home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The season opener at home against the Kansas City Chiefs could set the tone for the season. The Chiefs are coming off a disappointing loss in the AFC championship game to the Cincinnati Bengals. That cost the Chiefs a third consecutive Super Bowl berth. Thus, Patrick Mahomes and KC are highly motivated to atone for their implosion against the Bengals. But the Cardinals want to kill off the negative noise with a big win over a power brand.

The following week is a tough road game at the Las Vegas Raiders. Vegas has a new head coach, Josh McDaniels, and is coming off a playoff season.

If Arizona is to make the playoffs, it will have to overcome a tough final portion of the schedule that features three of its last four games on the road. Arizona will be at the Denver Broncos, home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, at the Atlanta Falcons, and at the San Francisco 49ers. Should the Cardinals make the playoffs, they will have earned it.

Founded in 1920 as the Chicago Cardinals, the Arizona Cardinals have a long and winding road of history that includes a lot of frustration and futility.

While in Chicago, the Cardinals were always operating in the shadow of the Chicago Bears. Before moving to St. Louis in 1960, the Cardinals won only two championships. Most seasons were losers.

St. Louis immediately took to the Cardinals, but the losing continued. During their time in St. Louis, the Cardinals made the playoffs only three times. After failing to agree to a new stadium, the franchise moved to Arizona in 1988.

The Cardinals have had their greatest era of success in Arizona, although it is relatively modest compared to the better NFL franchises. The Cardinals have made the playoffs six times since 1998. The 2008 Cardinals made the franchise’s only Super Bowl appearance, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
