Friday before: Arizona Cardinals have chance to prove themselves to the rest of the NFL

On Sunday the Arizona Cardinals travel to Los Angeles and take on the Los Angeles Rams, maybe the best team in the NFL.

There are three things they need to do in order to prove they belong, winning would be great but how do they get there?

  1. Kyler Murray needs to give the Cardinals a chance - Against the Los Angeles Rams, Kyler Murray has thrown for only 748 yards five touchdowns, four interceptions and completed only 58.7% of his passes. The rest of his career, Murray has thrown for 7,950 yards, 48 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. Murray has to boost his play and give the Cardinals a chance.
  2. Contain Matthew Stafford - Stafford has completely taken the NFL by storm again playing for the Rams. He is the odds on favorite for the MVP, has won two of the first three NFC Player of the Week awards on offense and has been dominant since he took over the Rams offense.
  3. Have a plan for Aaron Donald - Donald has 12 sacks, 18 tackles for loss and 25 quarterback hits in 14 games. He is the best defensive player in the NFL and maybe the best defensive player ever.

So, can the Cardinals come through on Sunday?

Let’s go Cardinals!
