Rondale Moore shows big play ability in Arizona Cardinals win over Minnesota Vikings

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have been looking for a weapon to deploy alongside their talented top wide receivers since the 2015 season.

After Michael Floyd and John Brown took steps back and then the failures to draft and develop, it was now 2021’s second round pick Rondale Moore’s turn.

Through two games, all he has done is put up 11 receptions for 182 yards and one touchdown, as he has given life to the Arizona Cardinals short passing game, while still being a big part of the Cardinals deep game.

These things have opened up the Arizona Cardinals offense in total.

While Moore’s 2021 projections after two weeks are lofty: 94 receptions for 1547 yards and eight to nine touchdowns, the reality is he has helped the Arizona Cardinals offense as a total.

You see, he and DeAndre Hopkins have created a dynamic mix, with a sprinkle in of Christian Kirk, A.J. Green, Maxx Williams and Chase Edmonds, the Cardinals passing game doesn’t have lulls like it did before.

You can see that in their first two wins.

Kyler Murray is on pace for an absurd season and sure to slow down, but come on, the potential of over 5,000 yards passing and over 50 passing touchdowns is exciting. Add in his continued rushing success and the Cardinals offense has started off insane.

Averaging 36 points per game is not going to happen, but you have to like the start and the potential through two games.

Rondale Moore is a big reason as to why.
