Anyways, as far as predictions for this week go, I think we have a decent shot, but I'm not expecting a beat down. That team is better than some are giving it credit for in this thread, and they have a wealth of weapons. I think the Bengals, especially offensively, are pretty good. No major shock that they managed to pull out a close one against the Vikes.

0-1 and desperate on the road versus a young team not used to being that dominant on the road.

I SMELL DETROIT game 2 just like last year. That's what makes this a clear trap game.

Cook and the boys are going to come out hard and we have to worry about getting a bit too big for our britches. Hopefully Prater can make his kicks FOR US this year.

Cards 32
Vikings 31

p.s. My family (from the upper midwest now mostly in AZ & TX) is filled with Vikings fans. I just bet my cousin an expensive steak dinner that we pull this one out. Perry's Steakhouse in Dallas on New Years weekend is the payoff! BRING IT HOME K1!!!!

But Rosen was your QB1
Actually, Darnold was in the pre-draft process for me that year. I did think Rosen was the best pure passer, but it didn't work out.

I'm happy now that things worked out the way they did, but with Cousins that year, I think the Cardinals win at least three more games.

I was thinking the same thing, until I looked it up and realized Detroit was game 3. Cards beat WFT 30-15 in game 2 last year. I'm feeling slightly better about this game now.

last year at this time, the narrative was that the Cards were better than anticipated, were favored in their home opener and the question was if they could handle success. They did as you noted

it was after 2-0 that the local media started counting wins and anticipating 5-0 heading into monday night vs the Cowboys.

they promptly lost to Detroit
