Week 17: Cardinals @ Eagles - Dec. 31st
Kyler Murray is back for the Arizona Cardinals and they finally got their second win on the season in Week 10. Even though they did knock off the Atlanta Falcons 25-23, it's not time to start claiming this team is a threat to anyone yet. They're still just 2-8 and they were able to simply take advantage of an Atlanta team that's starting to fall apart — and is now 1-4 on the road.
Arizona is still a mess without any elite weapons on offense or defense — and Jonathan Gannon hasn't looked great in year one as a head coach. After their first 10 games, they're 25th in the NFL in points scored with just 176 and 28th in points surrendered with 263. They are at least decent on the ground, currently ninth in rushing yardage but they can't stop a nosebleed.
Opposing teams have gone for 1,342 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground which is 28th and 29th in the league respectively. Simply put, the Eagles should be able to run all over them — and even though the Cards are 11th in passing yards on defense, that has a lot to do with teams running the ball to kill the clock. Murray will help and will get them some points, but this will be another comfortable win for Philly.
Score Prediction: Eagles 33, Cardinals 22
