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.

And if it’s any guide, there is another Pearl Harbor waiting for us out there. In 2019, the last chapter Pearl Harbor Survivors Association officially disbanded.13 hours ago The Daily Wire
