The Arizona Cardinals will be attempting to get back to the top of the division on Sunday
The Arizona Cardinals are just one game out of first place in the NFC West. They will attempt to start correcting that come Sunday in their first NFC West divisional game of the season against the Los Angeles Rams. I expect them to come out firing and will win 27-23.
The Rams come to town at 2-1. They’ve defeated the Seattle Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They haven’t been flashy but so far they are getting the job done.
The Rams aren’t the only 2-1 team in the division. The Seattle Seahawks are also 2-1. In addition to their loss to the Rams, they’ve escaped with a win over the Miami Dolphins and easily handled the San Francisco 49ers last weekend in Seattle.
The 49ers are tied with the Cardinals at 1-2. The 49ers defeated the Rams on opening weekend 28-0. Since then, they’ve dropped games at the Carolina Panthers and the Seahawks last week.
This week the Seahawks go east to face the New York Jets. The 49ers will host the Dallas Cowboys.
Seattle at New York Jets:
The Seahawks have been an up and down team. They could easily be 1-2 right now. They had little trouble against the 49ers. However the two weeks leading up to that their offense was almost non-existent.
They should have dropped a game at home to Miami and now go back to face another AFC East opponent on the road in New York. The Jets should give them a game.
The Jets played well in week one but lost to the Cincinnati Bengals. They turned the ball over seven times last week at Kansas City. They will play better but the Seahawks are the better team. They should squeak out another victory. Seattle 17 Jets 16
Dallas at San Francisco:
The Cowboys will come in with rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. He should have a field day with the 49ers. The 49ers did not play well last week in Seattle.
It is hard to make out who the real 49ers are yet as their victory was at home against a Rams team with a subpar quarterback. They had little life in their blowout loss last weekend.
Look for the Cowboys to take this one home handily. Cowboys 34 49ers 15
