Arizona Cardinals: 3 things we need to see from offense
The Cardinals still are having a difficult time converting third downs. The lack of offensive plays not only hurts the offense but the defense as well.
What you end up getting is a tired defense at the end of the game. Prolonged play on the field by the defense also leads to further injury.
The Cardinals converted just three times on 10 attempts on third down on Sunday against the Texans. It was an issue that reared it’s ugly head early in the season and has popped up from time to time.
Some of it is play calling, some of it is mistakes by receivers, some of it falls on the quarterback. Some of it also falls on the offensive line. After seemingly starting to jell, they are back to having a difficult time creating holes in the run attack.
They have the weapons to move the ball down the field everytime they touch it. Or do they? Maybe the Cardinals just don’t have the personnel to get it done anymore?
