Which matchups should favor the Arizona Cardinals the most during the remainder of the 2021 season?

The Arizona Cardinals sit at 9-2 with six games to go. And best yet, the Cardinals can realistically close out the season at 15-2. Not that this will happen. But with the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, and Seattle Seahawks struggling, the Cardinals could take advantage of the easy schedule. Assuming they stop playing to their competition.

The Los Angeles Rams will pose a challenge, despite the Cardinals making quick work of them in Week 4. They also play the Dallas Cowboys, who have been hampered by injuries, sit at 7-4.

The Indianapolis Colts seem as though they’re getting better as the season wears on following an 0-3 start. But even with a strong running game the Colts own, Arizona has a defense capable of at least keeping the likes of Jonathan Taylor out of the end zone.

It’s easy to say the Cardinals’ three most favorable matchups come against the Lions, Bears, and Seahawks. But the Cardinals have not beaten the Lions recently. One can never count out Russell Wilson. And the Bears are all but playing to save Matt Nagy’s job. Which teams do the Cardinals match up the most favorably against?
