Von Miller will try to add to his 2018 sack total against the rookie quarterback Josh Rosen as the Denver Broncos take on the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football.
Denver Broncos 2-4 (-1) @ Arizona Cardinals 1-5 (42): Broncos 23-20
Thursday, 8:20 PM, Univ. of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ (Weather: Indoors)
Reasons: The Cardinals have yet to win at home this season and the Broncos haven’t won a road game yet. Something has to give. That something could likely be Josh Rosen (626 passing yards; 2 TDs; 2 INTs) giving in to Von Miller (5.5. sacks; 2 FF) as Rosen has been sacked at least once in every game he’s played in, including four suffered to the Minnesota Vikings last week, while the Broncos are one sack away from ranking in the top-10. Neither team has an offense worth mentioning, other than maybe the Cardinals fighting the Buffalo Bills for Worst Offense, but both teams have top-10 total defenses, although both teams surrender over 23 ppg. Every time two terrible offenses play two decent defenses on a short week I predict a defensive battle rife with mistakes, so the way my TNF predictions have gone so far this season we should expect a perfectly executed shoot out.
Stay tuned for the remaining Week 7: #NFL Game Predictions (w/ spreads & analysis) coming Sunday morning!
