Turnovers, accuracy and dropped balls
Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen was definitely not on his “A’ game on Sunday. His accuracy was not there at all.
Sure, he had three touchdown passes on Sunday but he also had two bad interceptions. He easily could have been picked off three or four more times.
Rosen was just 9-20 for 136-yards on Sunday. If it weren’t for receiver Christian Kirk and escaping for a 59-yard catch and run in the first quarter, then Rosen would have ended well under 100-yards passing on the day.
But Rosen was just part of the story there. His receivers didn’t do him any favors either, particularly his tight ends Gresham and Seals-Jones. Not only did they have costly penalties they both dropped important balls.
One of Seals-Jones drops went in and out of his hands and almost into the hands of Raiders defenders. He had just one catch on three targets. Gresham was targeted twice but had the one drop.
You aren’t going to win many football games in this league with dropped passes from receivers and little accuracy from your quarterback. It isn’t going to get any easier for the Cardinals over the last six weeks.
