Denver Broncos have dominant record vs Cardinals
The Denver Broncos host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in a matchup that could end up being Brett Rypien vs Colt McCoy instead of Russell Wilson vs Kyler Murray. Wilson could miss the game with a concussion and Murray, unfortunately, tore his ACL this past weekend. There have been much more exciting quarterback battles between these two teams than we will see this Sunday even if Wilson plays.
The Denver Broncos hold a record of 9-1-1 over the Cardinals with them winning the last two matchups and their only loss coming in 2010.
Except for one matchup between the two teams, every time these two teams have faced each other, it’s always a high-scoring affair—either for one team or the other…or both.
The last two games these two teams faced each other, the Denver Broncos combined for 86 points. That’s right—86 points. The Cardinals scored 30 total points in those two games.
Here is the Broncos’ practice report for Thursday:
Denver Broncos: Scouting the Arizona Cardinals…
In 2022, the Cardinals have allowed the 10th-most passing yards to opponents, allowing 243.8 passing yards per game. They have allowed 24 passing touchdowns this season, the third-most in the league.
Arizona has allowed the eighth-least amount of rushing yards this season with 1,432 but the eighth-most rushing touchdowns allowed with 15.
The Broncos unfortunately will not have Javonte Williams, Tim Patrick, or perhaps Russell Wilson in this game, so their offense is already a problem for themselves. Despite Kyler Murray being out for the season, the Cardinals still have guys such as DeAndre Hopkins and Hollywood Brown to catch passes from Colt McCoy, who isn’t a terrible solution to their problems.
J.J. Watt and Zaven Collins are likely to be a problem for the Broncos because of the latter’s offensive line issues.
3 players who are playing for their future on the Broncos in Week 15
Taking a look at three players whose future with the Denver Broncos could be on the line with a good (or bad) performance in Week 15.
The loss of Kyler Murray is a huge one for the already-struggling Cardinals. With Murray out, the Broncos could have a legitimate chance at winning this game. Even if it doesn’t matter in terms of their 2022 outcome anymore.
