This is a different kind of test for the Arizona Cardinals. They played three tough opponents during the first three weeks of the season. This week, they are heavily favored over the Miami Dolphins, who haven’t been a force in the NFL for a very long time.
The key for the Cardinals this week, and for the next few weeks while they play the soft part of their schedule, will be to stay focused on their game, and not allow themselves to become a team who plays at the level of the competition.
Good focus on the defensive game should allow them to hold the Dolphins under 20 points, as they have to opponents all season. Kevin Kolb should be able to get the ball to Larry Fitzgerald failry often, and take advantage of Miami’s less-than-stellar secondary. If they can make that happen, the Cards should be able to win with a comfortable margin.
