Arizona Cardinals overwhelm Houston Texans to move to 7-0

It took a quarter, but the Arizona Cardinals got their game together and came out on the other side with another win over the Houston Texans 31-5.

For those that are so inclined to gambled, they covered a massive spread against a team that had NFL players.

It’s unheard of to win by four touchdowns in the NFL, but to cover as well? That takes some talent on all three sides of the ball.

By the way, we went 1-2 on our bets via DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Arizona Cardinals are legit. It never seemed like their offense was super in sync, but Kyler Murray was 20/28 for 261 yards and three touchdowns to go with a single interception.

Rushing wise, the Cardinals made it look easy, finishing with 172 yards rushing, led by 81 yards by Chase Edmonds and 64 yards by James Conner. Oh, Conner had the only rushing touchdown of the game as Hopkins, Christian Kirk and newly acquired Zach Ertz each had one touchdown reception on the day.

No matter how good the offense continues to be, the defense is even better.

The Cardinals sacked backup Davis Mills two times, each by Markus Golden in a blowout.

Now, it’s onto the game of the week against the 6-1 Green Bay Packers.

Let’s go Cardinals.
