The Cardinals have their sights set on a 3-0 start as they welcome in the San Francisco 49ers for a Week 3 clash.
With QB Carson Palmer back at 100% healthy, Arizona got their 2nd straight win in a lopsided 48-23 win over Chicago.
The 49ers couldn’t build off their Week 1 upset as they dropped a 43-18 blowout to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
A crucial NFC West early season battle offers both teams a chance to really gain the upperhand in the quest for the top spot..
The 49ers impressed at home in Week 1 in an upset Monday Night Football victory over the Minnesota Vikings. However, they suffered a complete 180 in Week 2 with a loss to Pittsburgh 48-13.
San Francisco had zero pass rush all game long as Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 21 of 27 and 369 yards.
QB Colin Kaepernick showed off his arm as he finished 33 of 46 for 335 yards and a pair of touchdowns. However, Kaepernick’s offensive line really let him down as he was sacked 5 times.
WR Torrey Smith had himself a solid game as well grabbing in 6 receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown. Smith and Kaepernick have showed off some impressive chemistry through the first two weeks.
RB Carlos Hyde has also taken a solid position in being the #1 back. Although he struggled to get going against Pittsburgh, he’ll look to find his form from Week 1 where he rushed for 168 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Vikings.
The Cardinals look like a completely different team with QB Carson Palmer under center.
After impressing in his Week 1 performance, Palmer didn’t break stride in Week 2. Palmer went 17 of 24 for 185 yards and threw for 4 touchdowns in the win.
Palmer’s main target, WR Larry Fitzgerald caught 3 of those 4 touchdowns and has really had become an explosive playmaker with Palmer throwing to him.
The already dangerous Cardinals offense will get a major boost as RB Andre Ellington is expected to return here in Week 3. Ellington was sidelined with a sprained right knee last week, although his services weren’t really needed.
Ellington ran for 69 yards and a touchdown in his Week 1 performance.
The Cardinals are 4-1 in SU in their last 5 as favorites.
