Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting

There’s a lot for the Arizona Cardinals to figure out over their bye week. Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray haven’t been on the same page all season, and that’s a big problem entering Kingsbury’s fourth year with the franchise. Kingsbury is on one of the hottest seats in the NFL with many prognosticators predicting he will be canned in the next month or so if the Cardinals don’t turn things around over their last five games.

Arizona Cardinals Week 13 Matchup

Kyler Murray seemingly called out Kliff Kingsbury and the coaching staff after Arizona lost to the Los Angeles Chargers last week. He stated that the team was not in a good place schematically, and that has been an occasional refrain for Murray over the last year. It seems likely that Murray and Kingsbury are on their way to a split, and it’s not the high-priced quarterback that will be pushed out of town.

Murray is having his worst season yet in the NFL. He is completing 66.3% of his passes, but he is throwing for just 2,359 yards (6.1 YPA) with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Murray hasn’t completed a pass of longer than 38 yards all season, and he hasn’t used his legs as often as he should with just 415 yards (6.3 YPC) and three rushing touchdowns on the year.

Arizona has a below average offense that is averaging just 22.0 PPG and 334.8 YPG. The Cardinals rank 28th in yards per play (4.9 YPP), as this passing game is not stretching the field like it should given the receivers on the roster. DeAndre Hopkins leads the team in receiving yards despite missing the first six games of the season due to a failed drug test, and he is averaging 11.7 YPR. Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore are the only other receivers averaging more than 10.0 YPR for the Cardinals, as defenses know they don’t have to respect the deep ball.

The Cardinals have one of the worst defenses in the NFL too. They are allowing 26.8 PPG (31st in the NFL) and 356.2 YPG. Their red zone defense has been particularly bad, and Arizona has been unable to create havoc plays like sacks and interceptions. J.J. Watt leads the team with 6.5 sacks, while there isn’t a player with more than a single interception on the roster.

Arizona Cardinals Week 12 Recap

The Los Angeles Chargers never looked like they would escape the desert with a win until the final 15 seconds of their game with the Arizona Cardinals. Justin Herbert found Austin Ekeler on a short out route to cut Arizona’s lead to 24-23, and Brandon Staley made the decision to go for the win in regulation. Herbert connected with Gerald Everett on the ensuing two-point conversion to put the Chargers up 25-24, and that’s how the game ended.

Arizona decided to change tact against Los Angeles’ league worst run defense, and the Cardinals had a lot of success on the ground. James Conner had 25 carries for 120 yards, and Kyler Murray ran the ball seven times for 56 yards and a score. It was Conner’s most successful game since joining the Cardinals as his last 100-yard game was back in October 2020 when he was still with Pittsburgh. Conner also had three catches for 20 yards and a touchdown.

Murray completed 18 of 29 passes for 191 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. DeAndre Hopkins was the top receiver as usual with four catches for 87 yards and a touchdown, while Marquise Brown caught six passes for 46 yards in his return.

Meanwhile, Herbert had an excellent game for the Chargers. Los Angeles only ran on 13 of 64 plays, so it was up to Herbert to keep his team in the game. He successfully used the short passing game to complete 35 of 47 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns. DeAndre Carter had seven receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown, while Austin Ekeler had 16 touches for 80 yards and a TD.

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.
