To be competitive hope for a low scoring game. I think the Cards will try to throw downfield some, but Dobbs history would suggest interceptions likely. Hopefully they won’t let Barkley loose. They don’t have the speed to run him down in the secondary.

I like Barkley to go over 150 in rushing alone in this one.

Eh I don't necessarily see that. The Giants line isn't particularly good and the Cardinals look like they've learned how to play the run better.

I could see Barkley getting those kind of yards of the Giants build a sizable lead and they run the ball in the 4th, with Barkley breaking off a long run to pad the stats.

Well, I checked Draft Kings, and the rush yards number is 69.5. Thinking about dropping a sizeable chunk on the over as I think that's a decent bet.

It seems like the Cardinals historically shut down the star runners and then give up big games to no name backs. I can't remember that white boy Bears running back who had a big game against the Cardinals years ago...players like that always beat up the Cardinals.

I'm sorry but you being off by greater than 100% in comparison to reality (Vegas) is hilarious :)

115% off base...

glad to see the forums are right where I left them

Giants were 31st in interception rate last year. Agreed that Dobbs is limited but we would be foolish not to try deep throws

Granted we're a Ledbetter than I thought we'd be on defense - but we are the Cardinals - so I can hear the big let down Collins
