Tyrann Mathieu will have at least one interception
From the sounds of how his practices are going, this may not be such a bold prediction. However it is still Honey Badger’s first game back since tearing his ACL last December.
Mathieu didn’t play in the preseason until week three. The Cardinals were taking no chances, starting him on the PUP list at the start of training camp.
Mathieu appears to have recovered quicker from his first ACL tear. He wasn’t 100 percent in week one in 2014 after tearing his ACL in December 2014. Not this time. From all accounts he is flying around in practice.
Mathieu did stop short of deeming himself 100 percent, saying he’d wait until he steps on the field Sunday night to determine that. However he is an all-go.
Next: The Cardinals will not score first
Just seeing him out on the field Sunday night is a blessing. Something tells me we will see something big happen though. Let the fireworks begin.
