Arizona Cardinals: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#23)

Last week: 23 (+7)

Record: 2-0

The Cardinals are one of only 6 undefeated teams left in the NFL, but they’re by far the weakest of the bunch. They’ve been outgained in each of their first 2 games, but won anyway, and have a negative yards per play differential and are tied with Jacksonville for the worst yards per play rate at 4.2. They’ve got a nice defense, but I still don’t trust either of their quarterbacks and neither of their running backs have gotten much going on the ground. Eventually, they won’t be able to just rely on their defense and you can’t win consistently in the NFL without winning the yardage battle.
