Jonathan Gannon vs DeMeco Ryans
Arizona Cardinals Seek Redemption The Arizona Cardinals enter Week 11 with an overall record of 2-8 and sit fourth in the highly competitive NFC West division. Most recently, they secured a narrow 25-23 win against the Atlanta Falcons behind Matt Prayer’s game-winning field goal; but star quarterback Kyler Murray struggled in his season debut against them by throwing for 249 yards and one interception en route to defeat.
Arizona’s defense has experienced considerable difficulties this season, surrendering an average of 26.3 points per game – placing them 28th overall in the NFL – while their offense has struggled mightily, scoring only 17.6 points per game and placing them 26th.
Houston Texans on Winning Streak
Conversely, the Houston Texans have established themselves in an advantageous position within the AFC South with a 5-4 record and two consecutive victories under rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud in Week 10, including one notable win against Cincinnati Bengals where CJ Stroud displayed his exceptional skills by throwing for 356 yards and 1 touchdown pass.
Devin Singleterry led a remarkable performance against the Bengals, rushing for 150 yards and scoring one touchdown en route to an outstanding offensive effort led by C.J. Stroud-led Texans offense averaging 274.3 passing yards per game and placing them second overall in the NFL.
Clash of Quarterback Titans
The centerpiece of this matchup lies with Kyler Murray and C.J. Stroud’s quarterback battle. Murray made an underwhelming return for Arizona last week and must prove himself against an intimidating Texans defense to deliver an outstanding performance against their formidable defense. Meanwhile, C.J. Stroud has made waves this year thanks to an outstanding rookie season that not only earned him Rookie of the Year honors but has even propelled him into consideration for NFL MVP considerations.
Stroud has been instrumental in leading the Texans’ offense, and his offensive power poses a considerable threat to Arizona’s defense. Murray will need to step up and deliver an outstanding performance to counter Stroud’s impressive output.
NFL Latest Odds: HOU -4 ; O/U 47.5
As the Cardinals gear up to face C.J. Stroud and Houston’s high-octane offense, it becomes evident that stopping C.J. Stroud will prove to be a challenging feat. Stroud’s rise as an emerging rookie phenomenon adds another level of difficulty for their defense to face off against.
Although the Cardinals managed a narrow win in their last matchup against Houston, their offensive prowess and quarterback Chris Stroud’s MVP-caliber play are poised to dominate in this one. Additionally, given Arizona’s struggles on both ends of the field and Houston’s recent winning momentum, it could easily cover their spread with ease and achieve victory as well.
