The Cardinals will not turn the ball over
One worry during the preseason was the Cardinals ability to take care of the ball. Turnovers seemed to be the theme, especially early in the preseason.
On Sunday evening, the Cardinals will take care of the ball. Palmer will not throw any interceptions. The Cardinals backs will hold onto the ball.
Not turning the ball over will be key against the Patriots. Against these Patriots the Cardinals likely could have a turnover or two and still come away with the victory.
Against any Patriot team though you don’t want to leave things to chance like that. The Cardinals must protect the ball to ensure they come away with the win.
Next: The tight end effect
The biggest concern will be with the passing game. The Cardinals like to take chances. As we’ve seen in the past those chances don’t always work out. The Patriots will make you pay if you give them the ball time after time, even with Garoppolo behind center.
