CAROLINA PANTHERS @ ARIZONA CARDINALS

The depleted Cardinals are at home and welcome a Carolina Panthers side in some turmoil. Can Colt McCoy pick up back to back wins as Kyler Murray’s understudy, or will Carolina get back on track in the same week that they re-signed former #1 overall draft pick Cam Newton? 

The Carolina Panthers will be without QB Sam Darnold, and although the team re-signed Cam Newton this week, he isn’t ready to suit up. Instead, P.J. Walker will start under Center for a Panthers side with only one win in their previous six games. Christian McCaffrey returned to action last week for the first time since Week 3 and, his playmaking ability will be needed if the Panthers are going to turn this season around. The talented RB is 11/8 to score a TD. Huge value for a guy as talented as CMC. 

Arizona is 8-1 and sitting pretty atop the NFC West. Even with injuries keeping Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins out of action last week, the Cardinals still had too much for a poor San Francisco side. Colt McCoy was solid in the win, but the real star of the offense, was former Steelers RB James Conner. The FA acquisition has six TDs in his last three games, and with Chase Edmonds out of the lineup due to injury, It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Conner carry the rock 20+ times again as he did last week. 

Spread: Cardinals -9.0

Total: 42.0

Game Prediction: Cardinals 27-17 Panthers
