New Orleans Saints (2-5) at Arizona Cardinals (3-4), Cardinals win 42-34
The New Orleans Saints dropped 42-34 to the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., after committing three first-half turnovers, two of which ended in pick-sixes. Arizona scored two touchdowns in the second half for the first time in almost five years to score more than 40 points.
Especially with Hopkins back in the mix, with an impressive debut with 10 grabs and over 100 yards, the Cardinals appear to have regained their swagger back.
Falcons (3-3) at Bengals (3-3), 1 p.m.:
Cincinnati has won three of its last four games, thanks to an improved offensive line, hot playmakers like Ja’Marr Chase, and Joe Burrow distributing the ball more swiftly. If it weren’t for three defeats by three, three, and two points, the defending AFC champions’ record would be much better.
There are very few cornerbacks capable of shutting down Chase. Terrell would ordinarily have a shot, however he has been injured for the previous few weeks. Chase racked up 132 yards and two scores on seven catches last week. Cincinnati will be difficult to beat if Burrow and Chase find their stride.
