What will happen when the Arizona Cardinals square off in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans?

The Arizona Cardinals open the season on the road in Nashville, and many have them slated to fall to the Tennessee Titans. However, the Cardinals have more advantages in this upcoming matchup than many think, especially given the explosive potential of the Cardinals offense as opposed to a weak Titans defense.

The Titans are also stagnant on offense early in the season. Even Derrick Henry, the league’s best back, tends to be up-and-down early on before he finds his groove as the season progresses. Luckily for the Cardinals, they will most likely face a stagnant Henry in Week 1.

There is also a lot of potential on defense in 2021. The unit comprises a solid mixture of young names and experienced veterans, which could put the team in deep sleeper mode early in the season. Knowing this, the unit can make a solid impact starting in Week 1. Here are a few bold predictions for Week 1 that no one in the NFL Universe has considered regarding the Cardinals matchup versus the Titans.
