The Cardinals are expected to get QB Kyler Murray and WR Marquise Brown back this week. The Arizona offense works best when it can run the ball, which it does much better when Murray plays. The Chargers are awful against the run, ranking 30th in rushing yards allowed per game (148.4) and dead last in yards per carry allowed (5.5).
The Cardinals are 4-0 when opponents rush for fewer than 100 yards and 0-6 when they rush for 100 or more. The Chargers have only passed 100 rushing yards as a team twice this season.

Senior officials of each country in the Chip 4 Alliance held their first meeting last week after months of coordination, according to Reuters.

The Chip 4 Alliance, a semiconductor working group initiated by the United States (US) in late 2021, is finally gearing up for more collaboration and concerted efforts, as senior officials from each country met for the first time last week. To recall, the preliminary meeting of the Chip 4 Alliance took place last September, but it only involved working-level officials from the four governments. This time, Taiwan’s foreign ministry said the “US-East Asia Semiconductor Supply Chain Resilience Working Group“, or “Fab 4”, had, after many months of coordination, held the first video meeting of senior officials from its working group on February 16.29 days ago Tech Wire Asia

One name that has been consistently floated around is Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson.
