Cardinals @ Panthers
Arizona has had trouble moving the ball because of a lack of a run game. Head Coach Bruce Arians has made comments this week that make me think he’s going to give a lot more carries to starting RB Rashad Mendenhall this week. This should open up the Cardinals’ receivers. The Panthers looked good against the Giants in their last game but so far this season everyone looks good against the Giants. Cardinals win.
