The Arizona Cardinals face-off with the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3

The Arizona Cardinals are looking to avoid a repeat of 2020 when they started 2-0 and lost to who was then the worst team in football, the Detroit Lions. It was a shocker and a harbinger of things to come for the Cardinals, who went on to finish 8-8.

However, the Cardinals are comfortable favorites to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, even if they’re making a cross-country road trip and must reset the body clock. That appears to be just one disadvantage for the Cardinals as on paper, they look more than capable of taking on a Jaguars team that has struggled in every facet of the game.

Today, we will explore three of the most favorable matchups the Cardinals have over the Jaguars, and what makes them favorites for their first 3-0 start since 2015, which was also the last time they made the playoffs. Let’s see where the Cardinals will excel against the Jaguars.
