3 Bold Predictions: Arizona Cardinals vs. Minnesota Vikings – Week 2
Moore goes the distance
In Week 1, DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk had huge outings. It will force defenses to key on them in the passing game. But what separates Rondale Moore is his ability to catch and run. He can make plays from the slot, but also out of the backfield. And in Week 2, the Cardinals use him often.
Moore is coming off an impressive debut with 4 catches for 68 yards, good for 17 yards per catch. But following performances from Hopkins and Kirk, it will force the Vikings to key on them often, leaving the 5-foot-7 rookie open and ready to contribute in multiple facets.
Look for Moore to build in his solid Week 1 performance through the air. He will also be a major contributor on the ground, and even in the return game, where he also had a solid outing. Even more impressive for Moore in Week 1, he played in just 20 snaps, maximizing his performance.
He will receive more playing time in Week 2. And he will once again take advantage of it in more than just the passing game.
