Arizona Cardinals vs NY Giants 10/20/2019
Even though they’re not on the leaderboards ranking, the Cardinals still manage to produce exciting games. Their fans were delighted by their 34-33 ownage of the Atlanta Falcons. Kyler Murray was all business in that game, going 27/37 with 340 air yards. He was the man of the hour, throwing in 3 TDs and boosting the team’s morale. David Johnson provided the necessary aggressiveness by carrying the ball 12 times. His longest run was 17 yards, and he helped the team gained a total of 34 yards. Oh, and did we say that he connected a touchdown as well? Meanwhile, Larry Fitzgerald made sure the ball was in safe hands by catching it 6 times. He gained 69 receiving yards in the process. The Cardinals had a really good game, running 29 out of 66 plays. They earned a whopping 442 yards, laid down 24 first-downs, and absorbed 8 penalties. The Cardinals seemed to trade offense for defense, however. They allowed their opponents a high completion rate at 83%. The opponent’s 444 yards gained was probably what made it a close game in the first place.
The Cardinals are ranked as an average team that can sometimes produce flashes of brilliance. Their previous game was proof enough of that, minus the lackluster defense. They’ll need to improve on defense to secure more wins and even out their win-loss ratio.

The New York Giants are picking up the pieces of their previous game. They lost to a 35-14 scoreboard. They were obviously dominated by a faster and more aggressive team. QB Daniel Jones was held down by the opponent’s defense, but he still managed to score 1 TD. He also went 15/31 with 161 air yards and produced 3 interceptions. Jonathan Hillman was TD-less, but he still carried the ball 11 times. His longest run of 10 yards and the total yardage of 38 yards fell short of expectations, however. Golden Tate tried to hold up the receivers’ end with 6 catches. He helped contribute 102 yards, with an average of 17 yards per catch. The Giants ran 16 times out of 48 plays. This is a clear indicator that they’re not well-versed in rushing. They scored 10 first-downs but were pushed back by 5 penalties. Overall, they gained a total of 213 yards. It’s a sad comparison to the opponent’s 427 yards gained. The Giants were hands-off in their defense, allowing the opponent to complete 76% of their attempts.
The Giants need to do more runs. This became obvious in their previous match as they were outgunned by the opponent’s rush tactics. They also need to cover more yards in order to get more chances at scoring.
