Cardinals secure final spot
The Cardinals are currently sitting at the third spot in the NFC Wild Card race.
The Buccaneers, which play in the Saints division, and the Seahawks, a division led by the LA Rams, are the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in the Wild Card race. The Cardinals should be the preferred team to play, but that is no way means it would be easy for the Saints.
As they proved against the Eagles, they allow elusive quarterbacks to get out of the pocket and scramble. After not giving up a 100-yard rusher for 55 straight games, the Saints allowed two to the Eagles, one being first-time starter rookie Jalen Hurts.
If Hurts did that to them, what do you think Kyler Murray would do? He’s the only quarterback with over 500 rushing yards, and he actually have over 700.
He may give the Saints some trouble with his agility, and it may be a matchup they’d rather not have to play. Murray as a passer has flaws, so that could help the Saints figure out how to matchup with him.
Nonetheless, it may not be a fun game for New Orleans, and it presents a tough opening-round scenario.
