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.

The Cleveland Browns are handing over the defensive reigns to new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz hoping to turn around that unit. But if the team wants a total defensive turnaround the defensive line and front seven need improvement. This draft has plenty of options and fun prospects along the defensive line and is a much better defensive tackle class than last year’s. The Browns will likely attack the interior defensive line in free agency by adding some young pieces through the draft. Now for this week’s seven-round Browns mock draft.20 hours ago Browns Wire

For the eighth time in nine games, the Ohio State men’s basketball team has put a mark on the wrong side of the ledger in the win/loss column. It’s been one of the worst stretches of basketball that I can remember the Buckeyes having. This game looked like it was out of hand, only for Wisconsin to let the Buckeyes, without head coach Chris Holtmann and freshman sensation Brice Sensabaugh, have life late but eventually holding them off, 65-60, to send the home team to an 11-11 record. The reality of the Ohio State hoops situation is that they’re going to be at home in March watching worthy teams play in the NCAA Tournament. It was another tough loss to swallow and here are my thoughts on the most recent Buckeye loss.3 days ago Buckeyes Wire
Coming into the Tennessee game, Florida had just two wins against Q1 and Q2 opponents in 11 chances. Close losses to Auburn, Florida Atlantic and Texas A&M (twice) are resume killers, but now the team has finally made good on Golden’s word. The win over Tennessee re-energized the fans and erased any memory of Keyontae Johnson hanging on the rim. Just a lot of great all-around efforts to beat a team like that by 13 points.”As Golden alluded to, the victory was not a blowout win by any means. Florida started out with a 17-4 run, but Tennessee came back like a top-five team in the country should against an unranked opponent.3 days ago Gators Wire
