Week 7: at New York Giants

All RB vs NYG

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Thanks to Kliff Kingsbury's offensive creativity, the Arizona Cardinals have developed one of the NFL's strongest rushing attacks over recent weeks. Although they have yet to record a 100-yard rusher through 6 games this season, the Cardinals' rushing attack is leaps and bounds ahead of where they were last season. Running back David Johnson is still the bell-cow running back for Arizona, playing at least 69-percent of offensive snaps in 5 out of 6 games this season. Unfortunately, in Arizona's pass-heavy offense, Johnson has registered more than 12 carries in just 2 games this season. Quarterback Kyler Murray has begun to utilize his legs more often in Arizona's offense, tallying at least 10 carries in each of the last 2 games for the Cardinals. Regardless of the ball-carrier, Arizona is efficient when running the football, averaging over 5 yards-per-carry on the season. The Cardinals' offensive line deserves credit here, as their blocking in Kliff Kingsbury's new offense is much improved from last season. Moving forward, expect Murray to continue to run the football, as the Cardinals have won each of the last two games when the rookie quarterback has threatened defenses with his rushing ability. David Johnson is also a supremely talented running back, and he should eclipse the century mark in a game sooner rather than later. Playing from behind, the New York Giants have faced the fifth-most rushing attempts in the NFL. A talented defensive front has helped limit the efficiency of opposing rushing attacks through six games, where the Giants rank 14th in the NFL, but behind that, there is not much to like. Along the defensive line, the Giants field three above-average run-stoppers in Dalvin Tomlinson, B.J. Hill, and Dexter Lawrence. The Giants' recent investment in the defensive line is paying off in the run game, as the unit now has a definitive strength. At linebacker, however, Alec Ogletree and Ryan Connelly have both struggled mightily to make a positive impact against the run. In the secondary, Antoine Bethea is still one of the league's best run-stopping safeties. Bethea has made a living throughout his 14-year career as one of the NFL's most physical defensive backs, and that has not faded one bit in 2019. Jabrill Peppers, on the other hand, is the polar opposite player in New York's secondary. Peppers has already missed 10 tackles this season, by far the most on the team. Expect the Arizona Cardinals' rushing attack to post strong efficiency numbers, even in the likely limited volume of a Kliff Kingsbury rushing attack, against the New York Giants here in week seven. Kingsbury's creative rushing attack will likely attempt to isolate New York's linebackers in space, as well as Jabrill Peppers, to take advantage of their shortcomings against Arizona's top-tier athletes coming out of the backfield.
