Why Detroit Will Win
The parts are there to do more with the running game, but it’s not working like it should. Adrian Peterson, Kerryon Johnson, D’Andre Swift – the backs are good enough to be used more to take some of the pressure off of Matthew Stafford.
The Lion defense hasn’t been anything special, but the safeties can hit, and they have range. They have the upside to keep Kyler Murray from taking off and gliding to easy first downs – the other parts of the Cardinal running game have to start working.
Why Arizona Will Win
The offense has been terrific so far. The ground game has been effective, Murray and the passing attack is working. The Cardinals – helped by Murray – have rushed for 100 more yards than their opponents over the first two games, and in a wee bit of a stunner, the defense has been working.
Detroit has players. It has good skill parts, it has veterans who can hit, and it has no pass rush whatsoever and it’s struggling to score. Stafford hasn’t been nearly accurate or consistent enough.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB Kenyan Drake, Arizona
He hasn’t been able to build too much on his sensational finish to 2019, but he’s been good. He’s not used enough as a receiver, but he has 146 rushing yards and a touchdown so far. That’s not enough considering how much of a call he was in most leagues, but he’s getting the work.
What’s Going To Happen
Everyone will come for the Arizona offense, but the defense will be what brings the win. Detroit isn’t going to be consistent enough for a full 60 minutes.
