After handling the Browns a 37-14 loss last week, the Cardinals continued to roll with a 31-5 win over the Texans on Sunday. In a game that from the outside lacked excitement, it most definitely had some inside the Cards’ locker room, as two former Texans, J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins, were out for revenge against their former team. New addition from the Eagles, Zach Ertz performed well with 3 receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown.
On the ground, both James Connor and Chase Edmonds continue to impress as they had a combined 145 rushing yards. Kliff Kingsbury was also back on the Cards’ sideline after missing the Cleveland game because of COVID-19 protocols. The Cardinals face off with the (6-1) Green Bay Packers this week on Thursday Night Football. The Packers are coming off a 24-10 victory over Washington, with Aaron Rodgers throwing for 274 yards and 3 touchdowns.
