Game Analysis & Picks
The Cardinals were dominated by the Chiefs in the opener getting blown out 42-21, while the Raiders fell to the Chargers in a more tightly contested affair. Both teams will look to avoid falling behind early, and should look to establish the run in order to keep the opposing defenses honest. I expect heavy doses of James Conner and Josh Jacobs on Sunday, to set up the play-action and create big play opportunities downfield.
The connection between Derek Carr and Davante Adams was a frequent storyline, as the tandem combined for 10 catches and 141 yards and a score on 17 targets. The Cardinals were clearly missing DeAndre Hopkins, as Kyler Murray managed just 193 passing yards and rarely looked comfortable in the pocket. This is a statement game for the Raiders and they cover the spread (-5.5) in their home opener. If the Cardinals can still put up 21 in a loss, this Over (51.5) makes a ton of sense too.
