The Cardinals offense has been able to move the move over the last couple of weeks. Although the offensive line has been suspect at times, the stat sheet still indicates the Cardinals can win most football games they participate in.
The trouble has been staying consistent and getting consistent performances. Receivers Michael Floyd and John Brown have had trouble on and off the field. Neither has been able to remain 100 percent healthy. Floyd’s dropped passes have been well chronicled.
On Sunday, the Cardinals will face one of the more talked about cornerbacks in the NFL. Josh Norman, who came to Washington after spurning the Carolina Panthers in the offseason, has had his moments. He can be beat though.
The Redskins have also had recent difficulty stopping the run. The Cardinals need to take full advantage of the Skins rushing defense and give the ball to David Johnson at least 25 times on the ground.
Not much can be said for their pass defense either over the past few weeks, however the Cardinals would be wise to run the ball not only because they are facing a poor rushing defense but it also helps with clock management.
