I don’t think it will come as too much of a shocker to fans that linebacker Chandler Jones will be pumped up for this one. The former Patriots pass rusher was traded to the Cardinals in the offseason.
For Jones, this is his first chance to prove to fans he was worth the price the Cardinals paid to get him. It just so happens to be against his former employer.
Jones doesn’t have to go out and get sacks on every play to make an impact. I expect him to garner a lot of double-teaming with his former mates knowing how he operates.
What he does is grab the attention, which in turn sets his teammates free to hunt down Garoppolo. Although Jones doesn’t need the sacks to make his presence felt, I suspect that he will get at least one sack and it will come at a very opportune time.
