PHOENIX – The Arizona Cardinals head into Week 3 with a big divisional match-up against the reigning NFC West division champion Seattle Seahawks.
One ESPN insider believes this game is ripe for the taking for the Cardinals.
“The only thing to worry about is if the defense plays bad enough to allow Tarvaris Jackson to get some confidence throwing the football. That’s the one concern,” said John Clayton on the Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf show on Friday.
Easier said than done for a Cardinals defense that has been torched the first two weeks of the season.
Arizona currently has the 29th ranked defense in the league, but are facing a Seattle offense struggling to get anything going.
“This is a bad football team. They can’t do anything offensively,” said Clayton.
For the Cardinals defense, this might be the game that can get them on track.
