Tip Arizona Cardinals @ Cleveland Browns
Let’s go to the ninth game day with our first tip Arizona Cardinals @ Cleveland Browns. The Cardinals are back to reality after a very good start and the Browns are treading water a bit. Who has the edge here next Sunday.
With 5 losses in a row, the Cardinals are now exactly what many experts predicted before the season. Journeyman Joshua Dobbs started relatively well in this season as a substitute for Murray, but in recent weeks not much went. On deadline day, he moved on to the Vikings. Whether Kyler Murray will be fit in time for this game, we can not judge at this point, but even if he should play, you can not expect 100% immediately.
The Cardinals really try their best every damn Sunday, but you can see more and more that this squad is not enough both offensively and defensively to bring in several wins, For this reason, they are certainly already looking ahead to the upcoming draft, where certainly some important questions must be answered. At the top of the list is certainly whether Murray will remain the face of the future or not.
The Browns currently sit in second place in the highly competitive AFC North with a record of 4-3 wins. They had the Seahawks on the ropes last game day, yet they were still narrowly defeated in the end. The Browns hope week after week for the return of Deshaun Watson, because one thing has become clear by now, PJ Walker unfortunately does not meet the highest standards. Although Watson has not yet pulled out any trees, he is still the better QB of the two.
The defense, led by Myles Garrett is one of the best in the league, but without real offense the best defense is not much use. One positive to highlight is Kareem Hunt, who has already indicated after his return that he still has some gas left in the tank. Amari Cooper is also playing like a true number one receiver.
Regardless of which quarterbacks will start on both sides, our tip Arizona Cardinals @ Cleveland Browns is still pretty clear. Yes, the Cardinals will put up another fight, but the difference in quality is simply too great. In the end, the Browns will pull away and secure an important win to stay in this division. The Cardinals, on the other hand, will move another step closer to their goal of the number one pick.
