NFL: Chargers vs Cardinals Preview


chargers vs cardinalsThe San Diego Chargers are set to match up against the Arizona Cardinals in the second game of the week 1 Monday Night Football double header, in a game that both teams are looking to win as they both enter the season with eyes toward the playoffs.

The Chargers are coming into this season looking to earn a spot in the playoffs out of the tough AFC West. The Chargers play in the division whose weakest team is the Oakland Raiders. The other 2 teams in the division, the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos, both made the playoffs last season, with the Broncos making it all the to the Superbowl before losing to the Seattle Seahawks. The Chargers will have to see improvement on both sides of the ball if they hope be competitive in the tough division.

The Cardinals fins themselves in a similar situation as the Chargers, they too play in one of the tougher divisions within the NFL, this time the NFC West. The NFC West features the last 2 representatives from the NFC in the Superbowl, with the Seahawks, who won the Superbowl last season, and the San Francsico 49ers, who lost the Superbowl to the Baltimore Ravens the season before. The Cardinals should be better that the St Lois Rams in the division, but will need to improve significantly to contend for a spot in the playoffs this year.

The line for the game is set in favor of the Cardinals by 3.5 point, while the over/under is set at 45.

This will definitely be one of the more competitive games of the opening week, but I think that the Chargers will be able to take this one from the Cardinals one the road on Monday Night. Chargers win this one close, 28-24.
