The Cardinals start 3-0

For the first time since 2015, the Cardinals will start the season 3-0 before heading back to the west coast for a clash with the Rams, a team they fell victim to twice in 2020. They will, however, at least exorcise their demons from 2020 and convincingly beat the Jaguars.

Look for them to haunt Lawrence all afternoon, as stated in the last slide. Rondale Moore will have another big day, but odds are he won’t be the only one with a career outing. If Hopkins is a no-go, it’s no worries for the Cardinals. Don’t be surprised if A.J. Green fills Hopkins’ shoes and gives us flashbacks from his prime during his days with the Bengals.

Look for another hot outing from Kyler Murray against a Jaguars defense that ranked 29th over the first two weeks of the season – 28th following Week 3’s Thursday Night game between the Panthers and Texans.

Maybe the Cardinals won’t win as convincingly as they did in Week 1 against the Titans. Those are hard to come by in the NFL. But look for the Cardinals to win by two possessions, with a final Jaguars touchdown coming in garbage time.
