Week 2 preview: Arizona Cardinals vs Baltimore Ravens
The Cardinals injury report is not that extensive, however there has been one player ruled out so far for Sunday’s contest.
Offensive lineman Lamont Gaillard did not practice all week and has been ruled out. Also not practicing all week was defensive end Jonathan Bullard. However he still is listed questionable for Sunday.
Linebacker Haason Reddick has a knee injury but will play. Also on the injury list is linebacker Ezekiel Turner with a hand injury but will play as well.
As for the Ravens, cornerback Jimmy Smith is the only player who has been ruled out. However they do have several players listed as questionable. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey, receiver Marquise Brown, running back Mark Ingram, linebacker Tyus Bowser, and tight end Mark Andrews are all on that list.
So, will we get the Cardinals of quarters one through three last week or from quarter four and overtime? Maybe something in the middle?
They will have to limit turnovers. The defense needs to tighten up on the receivers and tight ends or it will be a repeat of what we saw from the Lions last Sunday.
Look for the Cardinals to compete with the Ravens much better than the Dolphins did, but with a hostile crowd on the road, look for a Ravens win. Ravens 31 Cardinals 17
