After a disappointing home opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Arizona Cardinals are looking to get back in the win column.
The opening week did not go as planned in this Madden 22 play-through of the upcoming Arizona Cardinals schedule.
The home team put up plenty of points, 28 in fact, but unforced errors, like three interceptions from quarterback Kyler Murray, gave the ball back to the Chiefs too many times. As evidenced by the Bill-Chiefs playoff game this past season, you can’t keep giving the ball to Patrick Mahomes and expect to win.
New Cardinals receiver Marquise Brown went off in his first outing in red and had his first 100+ yard game in Arizona. His 113 yards were followed closely by a monster game by Zach Ertz, who racked up 105 yards of his own.
Overall, the Kliff Kingsbury offense worked and put points on the board, but a combination of mental errors (I told you I am not good at Madden) and poor defense let the visiting team secure the win and left the Cardinals in the hole at 0-1.
In Week Two, the Arizona Cardinals go on the road to take on the Las Vegas Raiders. Derek Carr to Davante Adams will be a key matchup for the defense to watch and the offensive line better be ready for former Cardinal Chandler Jones to be motivated against his old team.
Will I be able to get the good guys to a 1-1 record this week? Let’s find out.
Side-Note: All games in this series will be played, by myself, on All-Pro mode. Look, I wish I were good enough to play All-Madden, but I don’t really want to give you a 0-17 record at the end of the season.
