Week 10: November 10 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
TV: FOX 11:00 AM
The Cardinals and Buccaneers have this one circled on the calendar no doubt. The Cardinals face their former coach Bruce Arians for the first time since he retired in 2017 only to come out of retirement early this year to take the reins in Tampa.
Last time: Bruce Arians lead the Cardinals to victory over the Bucs in October 2017 in Glendale 38-33. That was a game in which the Cardinals once lead 31-0 and held on at the end.
Key matchup: Jameis Winston is at quarterback for Bucs. He had to be replaced in the 2017 game. Same thing happened to him last season. This year he is expected to be the starter the entire season, well, at least until he fails.
Look for the Cardinals pass rush to try to flush him out of the pocket. The Bucs do have guys like Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones to establish the running game, something the Cardinals hopefully have under control by the time these two play each other.
Prediction: Bucs 28 Cardinals 10
As much as it will pain Cardinals fans, BA will get the best of the Cardinals this day. The Bucs owe one to the Cardinals as well. The humidity in Tampa could be too much for the Cardinals to handle.
