Week 8: vs Arizona Cardinals
All WR vs ARI
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Cam Newton sat out of Week Five due to a concussion, but he did get into the divisional game against New Orleans prior to Carolina's Week Seven bye - Newton threw 27/47 for 322 yards passing, with two TDs and one interception thrown, while taking two sacks for -19 yards. He relied on the usual suspects - 14 targets for 8/86/0 receiving flowed to Kelvin Benjamin; eight for 5/54/0 went to Ted Ginn Jr.; seven for 6/94/0 landed with Greg Olsen. Devin Funchess (six for 2/28/1) and Ed Dickson (four for 3/23/1) handled the TDs for Newton. Though the Panthers lost the game 38-41 the offense wasn't at fault - the Panthers need their defense to limit the other team's scoring!
The Cardinals' pass defense held up well against Russell Wilson and company, allowing just 24/37 for 205 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, while recording one sack for -20 yards on the day. The Jets' quarterbacks combined for 20/37 for 197 net yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -8 yards at Arizona on Monday Night Football two games ago. To date, the Cardinals average 193.0 net yards passing allowed per game (third in the NFL) with five passing scores given out vs. nine interceptions (tied for second in the NFL) with 20 sacks generated (tied for third in the NFL). From Week Five to Week Seven of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Arizona has averaged 14.2 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fourth-least in the NFL); and 17 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (sixth-least); with two fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (second-least).
This defense is a tough nut to crack - it looks like a tough matchup is in store for Newton and his compatriots.
