The Arizona Cardinals will visit the Detroit Lions on Sunday Afternoon from Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. 

Arizona is coming off a disappointing 30-23 loss on Monday Night Football to the Los Angeles Rams. Although Kyler Murray is in the middle of an impressive season for the Cardinals, he did not play well in Monday’s game. Kyler Murray completed 32 out of his 49 passing attempts for 0 touchdowns to 2 interceptions. 

Besides last game, Kyler Murray has been amazing for the Cardinals when healthy. Kyler has 2,782 passing yards this season for 19 touchdowns on 9 interceptions for the Cardinals. He has a QBR of 61.6. 

The Cardinals offense averages 374.8 yards a game which is 9th in the league. They are scoring 28.2 points per game as they give up 331.6 yards and 19.5 points per game to their opponents. 

The big injury news for the Cardinals is that top Receiver Deandre Hopkins will be out.

After winning their first game of the season against the Vikings, Detroit returned to its losing ways with a loss to the Denver Broncos. Goff threw for one touchdown and  one interception as he completed 24 of 39 passes in the victory.

Goff has been unimpressive this year but seems to be getting into a grove. That’s really not saying much considering how bad he started the season. He has thrown for 2,791 yards with 14 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on the year. He has a QBR of 31.7. 

The Lions offense averages 311.3 yards a game which is 26th in the league. They are scoring 16.4 points per game as they give up 379.2 yards and 27.2 points per game to their opponents.

The Cardinals are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game. Detroit has been able to keep games close this year but are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The Cardinals will need guys to step up in this one but they should get the win and cover as they look to bounce back from their performance on Monday.
