Arizona Cardinals: 3 game balls vs Seahawks
For the second week in a row, Drake came to the party prepared. After winning FedEx Ground Player of the Week against the Cleveland Browns, he bested that effort on Sunday.
He ran for 166-yards and 2 touchdowns, including one that went for 80-yards. The 80-yard scamper was an immediate answer to Seattle’s only touchdown of the day.
During the week, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said they would love to make it work for Drake to return to Arizona in 2020. It would seem almost a forgone conclusion at this point.
Drake is going to be a free agent in the offseason. He likely now won’t come cheap but he has earned every penny he is about to be paid.
Drake has become the clear number one back for the Cardinals. It looks like Chase Edmonds may be sliding into the backup role, although Edmonds has only seen the field on Special Teams since returning from injury.
