The Arizona Cardinals come into the 2022 season with lots of questions and several concerns following a successful season a year ago. Arizona lost several key players and will start the season without their number one receiver as DeAndre Hopkins is serving a suspension. Quarterback Kyler Murray will still be under center and run the show for Arizona despite the contractual issues he is dealing with.
Kyler Murray is one of the most unique players in the NFL with his ability to run and throw the ball at an elite level. On his game Murray is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and will continue to grow and prosper this season. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury will have to be better this season in his decision making in order to help his team succeed.
Murray is surrounded by a strong group of weapons as James Conner is running back number one and will be depended on heavily. Connor cancarry a big load of the offense as well as be a key piece in the passing game. Once he returns DeAndre Hopkins will resume his role as receiver number one within the offense but in the meantime Marquise Brown and AJ Green will be relied upon heavily to carry the load.
The defensive side of the ball will be the biggest issue this season for the Arizona Cardinals, but they still will shine. Arizona still has one of the best defensive linemen in the league in JJ Watt and he has been given younger help this season. Watt will still be the core and the heart of the defense that will do enough this season to see Arizona again compete for a playoff spot.
