The undefeated Arizona Cardinals will host to the winless Detroit Lions on September 27th, 2020 at 4:25 PM. The Cardinals grabbed victories over the 49ers and Washington in their first two games, while the Lions lost to the Bears and Packers.
Detroit will try to achieve its first win of the season here taking on the Cardinals on the road. The Lions have blown two double-digit leads already in their first two games.
In their first game against the Bears, Detroit blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter and ultimately suffered the loss. In week 2, the Lions held a 14-0 lead over the Packers half through the first quarter and then were outscored 42-7 the rest of the game.
Matt Stafford has been average to start the season since returning from a back injury that plagued him at the end of last season. Stafford has completed 44 of 75 pass attempts for 541 yards to go with his 3:2 TD to INT ratio through the first two weeks. Not bad for someone who could barely stand up near the end of 2019.
Lions were missing Kenny Golladay for the second week in a row versus the Packers, but he should be good to go here against the Cardinals so look for him to make an impact on the game.
Defensively, the Lions have been riddled with injuries to start the season. Both of the starting corners for Detroit played limited time last week as Desmond Trufant left with an injury and Jeffery Okudah was returning from an injury. Okudah made his NFL debut last Sunday and got torched by veteran Davante Adams, so look for the Cardinals to target him in this one.
Cardinals are tied atop of the NFC West for the best record in the division with the Rams through two games. Most members of the media had the Cardinals as a sneaky playoff team this year and so far so good as they are undefeated.
Kyler Murray is showing that he can be a top tier QB in the NFL despite his height. Murray is the true definition of a dual-threat QB as he can rip off a 10 yard run with ease if need be or throw it 20 yards downfield to one of the best receivers in the game with Deandre Hopkins.
Kyler has completed 52 of 78 passes this season for 516 yards to go with his two touchdowns and two interceptions in two games. He already has run for three rushing touchdowns in just two games. Kyler had just four rushing touchdowns in 16 games last season.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Detroit +6
I like Detroit to pick their first win on the season here. Matt Stafford is the better QB at this point in time and with Kenny Golladay coming back I think he will hunt out that Arizona secondary and find his man for some touchdowns. Kyler has looked really good through two games, but giving them six points against a good Detroit team is preposterous. Give me the Lions to get their first dub of the season and cover the spread +6.
