The NFL season is past the halfway point. Let’s preview the upcoming Cardinals vs Browns matchup. The Cardinals are in full tank mode but still competing each week. Cleveland is aiming for a bounce back win.
How to Watch
Arizona nearly surged back late against the Ravens on Sunday. After entering the 4th quarter trailing 21-7, the Cardinals managed to scored 17 points and bring the score back to within a touchdown. That being said, they never really had a chance of winning. Arizona’s best bet at 1-7 is to compete as best they can, finding as many positives to build on for next year as possible, as they tank closer to USC’s Caleb Williams.
The Browns dropped to 4-3 on the season following their loss to the Seahawks. They sit in a three-way tie in the uber-competitive NFC North division. Cleveland needs to take advantage of games like this one against the Cardinals. QB PJ Walker continues to struggle in Deshaun Watson’s absence. He posted a 59.6 passer rating in the loss to Seattle. The Browns will continue to rely on their defense to aid them to victory.
Despite their 1-7 record, the Cardinals have played many of their opponents close, and had a shocking upset win over the Cowboys in Week 3. That makes any game that they are in unpredictable, though they will still be a large underdog regardless. I think Arizona can keep this game relatively low-scoring, but their offense is likely to have a ton of trouble against the Browns defense. I’ll take Cleveland to win and cover.
- Browns 23, Cardinals 13 (CLE -8.0)
