At first glance, it seems like the Cardinals have a fair advantage against the opposing defense. Unfortunately, they are severely outmatched on the other side of the ball, and are trending the wrong direction in offensive turnovers versus one of the top teams in takeaways. Can they take advantage of a favorable rushing matchup and keep Russell Wilson off the field?
