Why Washington Will Win
It wasn’t perfect, and it wasn’t beautiful, but the Football Team was able to come up with a fantastic defensive second half, and Dwayne Haskins did what he needed to do, to get by Philadelphia 27-17.
How did it really happen? Pass rush, pass rush, pass rush.
The Washington defensive front beat up and battered Carson Wentz, stalled any semblance of an Eagle running game, and it forced three turnovers thanks to all the pressure.
Arizona kept things moving against San Francisco with a huge performance from Kyler Murray, but he also didn’t get pressured like he will this week.
Why Arizona Will Win
It’s not like Washington did much of anything with its running game. Peyton Barber ran for two scores and Antonio Gibson led the way with 36 rushing yards, but it couldn’t do much to help out Haskins.
Arizona’s defense was hardly perfect against San Francisco, but it was able to hold its own against the banging offensive front. It’s the other side of the ball that should be the difference.
Murray was unstoppable when he got on the move, and DeAndre Hopkins made the most of his 16 targets with 14 grabs for 151 yards.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
TE Logan Thomas, Washington
Is he going to be a go-to guy around the goal line? Arizona drafted the Virginia Tech quarterback, but now he’s a tight end for the Football Team with the size and athleticism to grow into a steady factor. He only caught four passes for 37 yards and a touchdown, but if he scores again, he’s worth a flier of a pickup.
What’s Going To Happen
The excitement for the Cardinals is off the charts after being the defending NFC champs with Murray and Hopkins looking fantastic. The offense will continue to be explosive, but it’s not going to run away and hide with the Washington defense keeping the pressure up enough to make Murray work.
