The Cardinals will take their surprisingly great 3-0 start and try to stay undefeated this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. The game will be played at 4:05PM at Arizona’s University of Phoenix Stadium. The Dolphins come into the game with a 1-2 record with their sole win coming against the Raiders in week two. Last week the Dolphins fell in OT to the Jets. The Cardinals, on the other hand, defeated the Eagles and have so far won games against both them and the Patriots and Seahawks.
Arizona would certainly not be expected to be one of the only undefeated teams at this point in the season, but have done so with very impressive victories. The Cardinals did not know who would be their starter until the preseason was almost entirely completed. They then had a n injury to that starter and Kolb came in to try his hand. So far it has been working obviously, and it is evident that Kolb would like to keep the starting job. This latest game should certainly provide a W, but it will be a good test as it will show if Arizona can beat teams that they “should” beat.
Miami will not be the easiest win, however, and they have been moving the ball well offensively. In fact, they do have better overall numbers offensively with an average of 369 yards a game compared to just 262 by the Cardinals. They carry the ball as good as anyone and have a 175 yard average a game rushing the ball. This has been, in large part, due to the play of Reggie Bush who may not be available Sunday due to injury. Either way, I am certainly sure to look at this game and see who is able to come out on top.
