The New York Jets have been awful on the road. They have given up an average of 28.6 pts per game, while scoring 17.6. The Arizona Cardinals have given up 15.6 pts at home, while scoring 24.6 pts. Both teams have only played each other twice in their history. Once in 2012 and once in 2008. The Jets won both games. Obviously, they’re both completely different teams now. In this game, the Cardinals are favored to win by 7.
The Jets have a stout run defense, so, the Cardinals will probably need to beat the Jets by throwing the ball. The Cardinals have good receivers such as Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown. Carson Palmer should have no trouble getting the ball to them. David Johnson can be used as a pass catcher from the backfield. Cardinals will need to pick and choose when to run the ball.
New York will have a tough time scoring. With their road struggles and Arizona’s good defense it doesn’t look good for them. They will have a tough time throwing and running the football.
This match-up looks to be a one sided affair. I like the Arizona Cardinals to have no trouble winning this game.
Prediction: Arizona wins at home 31-16
