No. 2: Cardinals will finish with a winning record
The Cardinals have been rebuilding behind quarterback Kyler Murray, and they’ve been in a really good position as far as continuing that rebuild.
They nailed the draft by taking linebacker Isaiah Simmons in the first round and then taking a potential first-round pick in tackle Josh Jones in the third round. Add swindling the Houston Texans and obtaining star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for essentially nothing, and the team has seriously upgraded.
The Cardinals are not perfect, and they still have to continue to rebuild, but they have the necessary talent to win plenty of games provided Murray can make the progressions expected in his second year.
With a last-place schedule and the fact the Cardinals arguably have a better roster now than the Rams, they could very well find themselves racking up more wins than some expect.
Look for the Cardinals to make a leap and challenge for a Wild Card spot.
