Carson Palmer, 36, will return to Arizona following a concussion. Backup quarterback Drew Stanton, 32, led the Cards to their second win over the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 6. After this break, many hope that the Carson who can make big plays will come back, as the QB has struggled with throwing the ball 20-plus yards down the field, per NFL.com. So far this season, the Jets have allowed five touchdowns of 40-plus yards so if they Cardinals wants to light up the scoreboard, they better go big.
The Cardinals haven’t beaten the Jets in over 40 years. The last victory came when the still-St. Louis Cardinals bested Joe Namath’s, 73, squad in 1975. Since then, Arizona has come up short. With the Jets defense ranking second in the league in yards allowed per game, per CBS Sports, they might stifle Arizona’s running back, David Johnson, 24, from rushing the ball for more than a few yards.
Though, the Jets might just beat themselves. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, 33, leads the league in interceptions with 10, and the Jets are tied for second on turnovers. With the Cardinals tied for first in “Takeaways” (aka stealing the ball from the opposite team) this might be the game where Arizona finally beats the Jets.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Will you be cheering on the Cardinals or will you be chanting, “J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!”
