Calling all Phoenix area women!

Chicago Bears Matt Nagy on track his way

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Bears 16 – 14 Cardinals

The expectations for the outcome of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals were supposed to be low. If you were expecting a blowout, then your expectations were a bit too high. The Bears defeated the Cardinals 16-14 thanks to the defense.

The Bears defense was a little slow at first, including a couple of botched plays in coverage from linebacker Danny Trevathan. Those two ended up in touchdowns. But with some motivation, the Bears defense came alive and held quarterback Sam Bradford to 0 points for the rest of the game.

However, Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky struggled throughout the day, especially when he would drop his eyes the moment the Cardinals would pass rush. He failed to connect on the deep balls but did just enough to lead his team to victory.

2018 NFL Draft: QBs to provide big impact for 5 teams

Kate Arhar
Cleveland Browns Reporter

 

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8

Round One of the 2018 NFL Draft saw five Quarterbacks get taken: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson. These men should have a huge impact on their new teams and could really shake-up their divisions.

The first four all went in the top 10 but it took a while for Jackson to find a home. In what may have been the most joyful moment of the evening for a lot of his fans, the Ravens traded back into the first round to get him at 32. Two went to the AFC North and two went to the AFC East. Both those divisions are going to see the quality of competition rise significantly in the next couple years.

OurTurf’s Mock NFL Draft Part 1

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

Free agency is pretty much on the quiet front with some players still trickling on to teams, such as quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the Tennessee Titans, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to the Los Angeles Rams.  But now it’s all about the draft and filling the holes that will make or break a team. So here is my attempt at Round 1 of the NFL Draft.

Titans lose on the road to Arizona

Official Tennessee Titans Fan Reporter

 

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

Cardinals 12 – Titans 7

 

What was supposed to be a beautiful beginning of a trip out west ended up an offensive nightmare. The Titans defense was playing full force. They had eight sacks this game and they kept the Cardinals from scoring touchdowns. However, the Tennessee offense was just plain awful. They are not working together. There is no mojo brewing, no fantastic plays, and certainly no smashmouth football going on. Blah!!

Injuries Overshadow Seahawks Win in Arizona

By Shannon Sanchez  // @ShannonSanchez3

Seattle Seahawks 22 – Arizona Cardinals 16

 

 

The Seahawks won. It doesn’t feel like it though.  They paid a high price.  There was a sense that this was a must-win game after last Sunday, but no one could have expected this.  At least 7 Seahawks were injured. The most notable, safety Richard Sherman out for the rest of the year with a ruptured Achilles.   Strong safety Kam Chancellor left the game with a stinger, left tackle Duane Brown (ankle), defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hamstring), safety Shaquill Griffin (shoulder), and running back C.J. Prosise (ankle).

Philadelphia Eagles – On To The Next

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @roxaaneh

FINAL: Eagles – 34, Cardinals – 7

Five games down, 11 more to go. Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals was definitely one of the easiest, most anxiety-free games I’ve seen in a long time.  The Philadelphia Eagles looked flawless. 

After a win like this I would usually celebrate pretty much all week until Thursday, when the new week starts and then my focus turns to our next opponent. But seeing as this is a short week for Philadelphia, the high off this win came down early Sunday evening and I hope the Eagles aren’t letting these wins get to their head. It’s only Week 6, there’s a lot of football still to play and this is not the time to underestimate any team.

Cue The Adrian Peterson Era in Arizona

NFC Coordinator
Page Gerrick Denny

by Page Gerrick Denny // @PDenny29

The Arizona Cardinals made a stunning move this morning by trading a conditional 2018 sixth-round draft pick for New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson, and for the second time this year have released running back Chris Johnson.

This move to add a running back comes a month after their September roster addition of former Patriots running back D.J. Foster, who played college football just 30 minutes away, at Arizona State University.

Arizona Cardinals Season Through Week 5

NFC Coordinator
Page Gerrick Denny

by Page Gerrick Denny // @PDenny29

The Arizona Cardinals are through the first five weeks of the NFL season, which seems as good a time as any to check in and see how the team is doing.

On paper, this team looked like a solid contender going into the 2017 season, with hopes heavily resting on star running back David Johnson, and a strong secondary. It was understood that success would depend heavily on a few key elements:

  • Offensive line must protect quarterback Carson Palmer
  • David Johnson must be fed frequently
  • Defense must increase interior pressure on opposing QBs and stop the run
  • Special Teams errors must be minimized on snaps and kick coverage, and kicking accuracy/output must be increased
