Week 11

Seattle Seahawks (Away)

  • Date: Sunday, November 14
  • Time: 2:25 p.m. MST
  • TV: FOX

It’s almost a Cardinals tradition that started with Bruce Arians- the Cardinals absolutely love winning in Seattle. It happens again- need I say more?

Prediction: Cardinals win (7-4)

Week 12: 

Bye week

Week 13

Chicago Bears (Away)

  • Date: Sunday, December 5
  • Time: 11 a.m. MST
  • TV: FOX

No matter what some may say, the cold will not affect this game. This writer has also lived in Chicago the past few years and take his word on the fact that it will not be that cold here. On top of that, he lives as close to Lake Michigan as you could get, and the winters don’t really ramp until January anyways.

This has the potential to be a young-QB showcase between Murray and Justin Fields (who should be starting regardless). This will be a high-scoring affair as the Cardinals have struggled to maintain option offenses and teams that have good ground attacks.

Prediction: Cardinals win on a last-second field goal. (8-4)

Week 14

Los Angeles Rams (Home)

  • Date: Monday, December 13
  • Time: 6:15 p.m. MST
  • TV: ESPN

There is the urge to want to beat McVay and the Rams. It would mean a lot for this team to finally get that W against the Rams, but it just doesn’t happen. The Cardinals will get embarrassed on national TV as Stafford hits Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and DeSean Jackson for touchdowns.

Prediction: Cardinals lose big, (8-5)
