The Arizona Cardinals host the Seattle Seahawks for the first time in the Steve Wilks era
Former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was able to win in Seattle but could never muster a win in Glendale against the Seahawks. Now, it’s Steve Wilks turn.
More notably, it is Josh Rosen‘s turn. He will make his first NFL career-start on Sunday at State Farm Stadium.
So what are the keys to Arizona finding victory for the first time this season? They came close last week but made too many mistakes down the stretch.
Be patient but be wise
The Cardinals and their fans can’t go into Sunday’s game thinking they can just waltz into the stadium and turn on a switch since Rosen is now the quarterback. Everyone needs to be patient with Rosen.
That doesn’t only go for Sunday’s game but every game the rest of the season. Rosen should be something special, but don’t expect an MVP-type performance right out of the gate.
The play calling, which has been very suspect over the first three games, certainly needs to open up but it also needs to have some patience as well. Give Rosen a couple of shots down the field, but not on every play.
