The cardinals were shut out for 3 quarters by Tampa who has no pass rush and won because Tampa was starting a rookie who threw an interception to hand Arizona the game. I can't see Arizona scoring many points. We know if it is a blow out it will be us with the lead. Frankly I don't care if they get 700 yards as long as we hold them to 12 points which is our season average.
I know I go into every game expecting to win but I really think we win this week by 10 or more. Arizona is awful converting 3rd downs and have been lucky winning their 2 games. They got a gimme interception against Tampa and a pass interference in the end zone to set up a late TD at home against Detroit. People say that they shut down Reggie Bush but don't realize Bush only played in the first half before he went out with an injury. He came back briefly in the second half but admitted he shouldn't have. So they have faced NO who has no run game (81 yards), Detroit who averages 95 yards a game, Tampa who averages 100 yards and St Louis who averages 47 yards. Meanwhile we average 150 yards per game. Expect us to run often and wear them down.
Arizona averages 75 yards running the ball, I say we keep them to 50 or less. Does anyone expect Arizona to throw for 400 yards with that line and Palmer throwing the ball? They are going to dink and dunk down the field once they see our pass rush. I think he might throw for 200 yards maybe 250. I am surely a homer but even at home I can't see them running away with it. Unless they get defensive TDs or special teams TDs I don't see them scoring more than 14 points. I think we get closer to 24.
