NFL Power Rankings Week 8: QB change sparks Titans to win
20. Arizona Cardinals (3-3-1)
Recap: The Arizona Cardinals caught the New York Giants sleeping during the first quarter of their Week 7 win. Arizona got off to a fast start in sloppy conditions and took an early 17-0 lead thanks to a pair of 20-yard touchdown runs by Chase Edmonds and a field goal by Zane Gonzalez. While the Giants would battle back, the Cardinals were able to stave-off the comeback bid with the help of a third rushing touchdown by Edmonds and a big stop late in the fourth quarter that sent Arizona home winners.
Outlook: Don’t look now, but the Kyler Murray-led Cardinals are .500 and on a three-game winning streak. We’re going to see just what this team is made of in Week 8, as the Cardinals take on the New Orleans Saints on the road in what will be a game against one of the NFL’s elite teams. We all expected Arizona to be a bottom-feeders this season, but this Cardinals team is competitive and Murray and Co. are showing they know how to win games.
