Right when everyone began to believe in the Arizona Cardinals, they came back down to Earth. This is an extremely important Week 4 matchup for Arizona if they want to keep pace in the NFC West.
After beating up Washington in Week 2, the Cardinals seemed to have a path to a 5-0 start but the Detroit Lions had other plans. The Lions took down Arizona 26-23 on the road. The Cardinals will have to get back on track this week against the Carolina Panthers.
This was a disappointing loss for the Cardinals with the struggling Panthers on deck, even though they are coming off a win against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Cardinals will face the New York Jets in Week 5 so they had a chance to start with five straight wins.
Now they will be looking to avoid a two-game losing streak. DeAndre Hopkins is on a record-setting pace through three games. Kyler Murray turned the ball over three times against the Lions but is off to a good start as well.
Kliff Kingsbury will have to get his offense back on track in this one. The Panthers’ defense has holes and it is Arizona’s job to exploit them. Here are four predictions for the Cardinals in Week 4.
