The Arizona Cardinals will face the New England Patriots next weekend on the road. The Cardinals themselves have had to deal with a number of injuries. The Pats, in a 27-20 loss to the Houston Texans, suffered injuries to two key offensive players.

RB Rex Burkhead suffered a knee injury in the game after having four rushing attempts.

It is believed to be a torn ACL and he will miss the rest of the season. He was on his way to a career season.

We need to bring d wash back for one week.
Yep. I recently was watching the AZ/Carolina game from BA’s 1st season with us. Palmer hadn’t learned the offense, who now admits he never totally learned, and was awful that day. But, DWash was just remarkable that day. He made Cam’s day miserable. He singlehandedly shut down their offense. What a shame. If we had DWash & Honey Badger when we played them in the NFC Championship game, we would won & beat the Broncos in the SB.

Ive watched a few Pats games recently and they have been garbage. I don't know how they beat the Ravens other than the Ravens seem to have hit a bad patch and have become predictable on offense.

This should, on paper, be an easy win as the Pats defense is not what it was, and their offense has been really poor.

This is a pure coaching challenge and a measure of where Kliff is as a HC.

All true, but Cardinals are historically, the absolute WORST west coast team coming east for an early Sunday game. From a coaching standpoint, BB will embarrass the combination of KK & Joseph. I just pray that Murray is close to 100% & that’s enough. Between all the penalties on both sides of the ball and defensive liabilities, this will be won or lost late. We are NOT remotely a finished product.

Patriots are trash. Cam looks like a shell of himself appears to labor to through the ball in an accurate fashion.

However, knowing Kliffs inability to properly win close games, Kliff better scheme to put up points because it will not be good if it is close.

The Pats aren't very good and this is a game the Cards CAN, and maybe even SHOULD, win. But for reasons stated previously (traveling to the East Coast, playing early, BB being FAR superior to KK in coaching, etc), I think it will be a difficult game to come out of with a W. But's it's very, very winnable.
